House 2 pictures
Bantayan Island Outreach
June of 2014

This second house was a full bamboo pole and tarp shelter. The cinderblock house they were living in before the Typhoon was completely destroyed.  A couple with two children lived in this shelter along with everything they could salvage from their ruined cinderblock home.

We weren't prepared to re-build the cinderblock house. We didn't have any masons, bricks or cement but we did have a large group of carpenters ready to deploy hardwood beams, amakan walling (woven bamboo sheets) and tin roofing. We replaced the bamboo pole with a hardwood frame, tin roofing and amakan walling.
