Meet Liezl with baby on the way, her husband Boyet, and their daughter Lean. They are our kapit-bahay (neighbours) and they were severely affected by Typhoon Rai. We would like to help them rebuild their house, as well as other families in the village, by raising funds for construction materials such as bricks, roofs, etc. Your donation will help change the lives of these people, who were already struggling before the storm hit.

3 weeks ago, the storm devastated the little fishermen’s village we live in. Most are somehow able to reconstruct their houses with the little savings they had, but unfortunately, families’ like Liezl’s barely have enough to even buy food. Their livelihood includes fishing, raising lobsters and cultivating seaweed. However, the storm had swept away their livelihood, and it may take a long time before the ecosystem is re-established. This leaves many villagers having to find other ways to make a living in the meantime, such as selling used bottles; which is of course, less profitable.


For the moment, the extra money they make goes to rebuilding their homes. Your donations, in any amount, will be greatly appreciated by these families.

4th Update: Progress So Far

Update posted by Jillian Fersancourt at 02:29 am

It's been a while since I was able to give updates here. We still don't have electricity in our town. And with the delays we had with PayPal, this project has been more challenging than I had anticipated. Although my PayPal account had been restored, they still put incoming donations. . . . .
