In response to the widespread devastation wrought in Southern Philippines by Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) on 8 November 2013 project partners undertook to build and distribute 100 houses in Bantayan Island, Cebu City.
On December 2015, the last phase of the shelter rehabilitation was completed and the last house was turned over to the typhoon survivors. Several of the newly rehabilitated houses were blessed by Tanging Yaman Foundation, Inc. Chairman Fr. Manoling Francisco, SJ. This initiative was funded by Caritas Humanitarian Aid & Relief Initiatives, Singapore (CHARIS), and in cooperation with Jesuit Mission Singapore and the Tanging Yaman Foundation, Inc. in Manila. This project would not be possible with out the assistance of Sto. Niño Catholic Parish Church led by Parish Priest Fr. Roy Bucag and parish workers, Anne Claire, Joanne, and Jai Shane. TYF is also grateful for the generosity of the Hubahib Family, especially Ms. Honeybee Hubahib, Christine Ybañez, Chris Hubahib and Janice Perez.
