The project will provide basic building materials such as nails, galvanized iron, bamboo for walling, coconut lumber and cement for ultra-poor families so that they can have a decent Filipino-type dwelling that they so love and to replace the current habitation they have consisting of lean-to's and flimsy materials.

The current housing situation of poor families is dire. They are either living in lean-to's gathered from the debris, sleeping in grasses or living in tents. The lean-to's are problematic in that when it rains everybody inside gets wet and children gets sick easily. They are in difficult situation. Those living in tents are also in very difficult situation because the tents are flimsy and water tend to seep in during rain.


The project will provide basic building materials to the very needy families. The basic building materials will be nails, galvanized iron, bamboo slats, cement, bamboo and coconut lumber. The home design will be Filipino-type. The psychological impact of being in a new home will be great for poor families without a decent one. The would be owners themselves with the help of our expert carpenters will build their own homes.

Long-Term Impact

Poor families without homes are in difficult conditions and they especially the children get sick easily. Colds and influenza are common ailments. We can easily change this dire situation by providing basic building materials for a Filipino home which the families love and sorely miss. Having a more secure roof in the head will surely aid community development.
