On December 16, 2011 the island of Mindanao was hit by Typhoon Washi – locally known as “Sendong.” Heavy rains caused destructive flash flooding which killed over 1,200 people and left hundreds more still missing. Nearly 50,000 homes were damaged or destroyed.
What: Project Cagayan de Oro
Where: Cagayan de Oro, Philippines
When: January 20, 2012 – March 9, 2013
Why: Typhoon Sendong, December 16, 2011
How: All Hands work in Cagayan de Oro covered a multitude of needs. Our initial focus responding to Typhoon Sendong was on the traditional muck, gut and deconstruction of damaged home. Quickly, we broadened our scope and assisted with transitional housing, community tree planting, and mostly permanent home construction in partnership with Habitat For Humanity Philippines.
