Due to the devastating calamities brought about Category 5 Super Typhoon Haiyan, also known as Yolanda, thousands of families lost their homes, livelihood, community and loved ones. It was such a powerful storm affecting the South Asian regions, that it left the towns of Central Luzon, Philippines paralyzed and in need of help.
As part of the whole world’s nation builiding efforts for the affected South Asian countries, PDC did its part by bringing the second group of PDC Manila volunteers, Renato Dela Paz, Angel Magallanes, Hannah Lugo, Daisy Alpay, Annaliza Delos Santos and Joahnna Flores went to the province of Leyte on June 8-12, 2014 to continue the reconstruction project PDC commenced last month in Brgy San Agustin, Palo Leyte.
The trip was filled with equally exciting activities as they enjoyed helping to rebuild the Sibol School and other housing projects in the community of Brgy San Agustin. Games and Father’s Day special activities were also organized and facilitated by the PDC volunteers for the local children. For the PDC volunteers, it is a totally unforgettable experience. They completely immerse themselves in living with the locals in an area without electricity and only very limited access to facilities.
The team captured some of their amazing experience in the video below.
