Typhoon Relief — Tukod Balay


After food relief, it was time to roof the battered homes…so TUKOD BALAY commenced.  We bought materials to fix homes, just to keep the rain and sun away.  Armed with materials, galvanized sheets, roof glue, nails , good will and a carpenter, we proceeded to help those who needed help…almost 100 homes were rebuilt over the next 3 months.
