On Novermber 08, 2013 one of the strongest storms ever recorded made landfall on the island of Leyte, Philippines bringing with it devastating storm surges and deadly 330 kilometer per hour winds. The aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as ‘Yolanda’) was a total catastrophe as many coastline communities were completely wiped out and much of the city’s internal infrastructure completely destroyed. The official deal toll stands at approximately 6,000 however many local sources suggest the actual number of Yolanda victims has surpassed 10,000.

Since Typhoon Yolanda the need for strong sustainable living conditions has never been so dire. All across Leyte and Samar, thousands of families are still reeling from the aftermath of the disaster. Homes previously located within 50 meters of the shoreline in many cases are no longer available for rebuilding.

Through this project, you’ll directly help the local people assisting in creating better living conditions for families and school children. Depending on the needs at the time you’ll either be assisting in either home rebuilding or renovations of schools. This may involve simple renovations, eg. painting and landscaping, to complete rebuilds or major renovations to classrooms.

Location
Palawan is a long narrow island surrounded by numerous small islands to make up the Province known (after the largest of its islands) as Palawan. The island province of Palawan has been declared as a nature sanctuary of the world as it is wrapped in a mantel of rainforests, incredible dive sites with colorful marine life, mountains, caves, and pristine beaches. The island is very picturesque and dotted with fishing villages and of course surrounded by beautiful blue sea and green jungle mountains. It has an abundance of wildlife and is mostly undeveloped. The projects are located approx 45 min outside the main city of Puerto Princesa where you will be warmly welcomed into the community.
