We are helping to reconstruct a building where lives are saved

Cangumbang, Philippines

On the 8th November 2013 the Haiyan typhoon hit the islands of central Philippines. The mostly affected places were the island of Leyte and the town of Tacloban.

The number of fatalities is estimated to have exceeded 6,100. Destructive force consumed hundreds of thousands of houses, public transportation as well as telecommunications and energy systems in the entire region. Moreover, Haiyan paralyzed local authorities and the economy. The typhoon, called Yolanda by the Filipinos, was deemed to have been one of the most powerful typhoons ever.

In the village of Cangumbang Yolanda spared the lives of its 400 inhabitants. Many of them were lucky to have found shelter in a building constructed thanks to the funds collected by a 24-year-old volunteer from the Unites States, Elsa Thomasma. Elsa’s assistance for Cangumbang marked the beginning of an original project called "The Bike". It was completed under supervision of an organization called Volunteers for the Visayans. Under the project, the volunteer donated 16 bicycles to local children.

Elsa Thomasma worked also at a number of children’s homes located in the vicinity of Tacloban. Her activities saved the lives of the village’s population as they were able to find protection in those venues when Yolanda hit. The building that has been constructed with the help of the volunteer she calls herself symbolically the “arc”.
