It's as easy as A-B-C! Accept the Ayos Bahay Challenge!
Let's help re-build homes, re-build lives! It's as easy as A-B-C!
The challenge is: disaster response through shelter repair kits and cleaning kits; and develop disaster resilience through home improvement kits.
Habitat for Humanity Philippines will be distributing shelter repair kits and/or home improvement kits to 25,000 families in identified disaster prone cities and municipalities in the country. Each kit contains tools and materials that will be used to make homes more resilient to disasters.
The Typhoon Pablo (International name: Bopha) has affected more than one million families. The infrastructure loss of these families is phenomenal.

We have distributed 100 shelter repair kits to affected families of Typhoon Bopha/Pablo in Monkayo, Compostela Valley last December 8! We will be distributing 15,000 more on other places in the next weeks! :)
We will be in Payatas, Quezon City on October 20 and in Naga, Bicol on October 22 and 23 for the Ayos Bahay Challenge! Join us there!
We are reaching our first benchmark! We are 21,800 short of 50,000 pesos! That is equivalent to four complete shelter repair kits! :)
