On November 8th, 2013, exactly 1 year ago, Typhoon Yolanda hit the Philippines.
On the island of Bantayan, 95% of the infrastructure has been destroyed, leaving people in precarious living and unhealthy conditions.
HOST-NGO set up then emergency measures to assist local communities, in visiting a few days later the island on Bantayan to provide food, clean water, medicines, and other first aid kits.
Since the tragedy, HOST-NGO has developed two projects to help local communities to rebuild sustainably:
- Kubo Concept: Construction of houses built from local materials and constructed to be "typhoon proof". These green homes will help communities without roofs to be aware of organic agriculture and environment.
- Weaving Project: Training of a group of women in Bantayan to weave bags from Pandan (local plant). These bags will be sold so that the economic development of the community will be boost. Host intends to implant fair and honesty trade.
To continue to carry out these projects and support the development of the victims of Typhoon Yolanda, HOST-NGO needs you!
