Habitat for Humanity Philippines reconstruction efforts underway following Typhoon Haiyan

Construction is underway on reconstruction sites in Santa Fe on Bantayan Island in Cebu, Philippines following the November 2013 Typhoon Haiyan. A groundbreaking ceremony was held 100 days after the typhoon struck and Habitat for Humanity’s reconstruction efforts are now fully underway. The rebuild has been funded by Christian Aid Ministries.

Charlie Ayco, Habitat for Humanity Philippines CEO said: “We have started reconstruction work simultaneously on sites in northern Cebu, Leyte and Tacloban and will continue to ramp up operations. The vast majority of affected families are still living in makeshift homes, with fragile roofs and walls, so Habitat continues to distribute shelter repair kits to improve conditions while rebuilding takes place.”

Habitat for Humanity Philippines aims to distribute more than 30,000 shelter repair kits and build 30,000 core homes, depending on availability of funding. More than 1.1 million homes were either damaged or destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan, according to Philippine government figures. Habitat for Humanity Philippines has also started operations to build 8,083 homes in Bohol for families affected by the earthquake that struck 15 October 2013.
