Small World - Rebuilding Philippines

Small World is a private foundation building houses for people in remote areas in the Philippines -Panitugan Island - after Typhoon Yolanda on Nov 8 2013. We have built 9 houses so far and about to start the 10th and also looking at finding surgeons
to help Rita to remove her tumour
This is the commom house im building but still needs the windows.

I Chris Verheyen arrived in the Philippinines on March 6 to help another person Louise Woetmann with her house projects. On the 13th of March i helped a medical organisation called SUMU with a mission to a small island called Panitugan. That day i meet a boy called Remal aged 16, we found out that he had TB ( Tuberculosis ) and was extremely malnourished weighing 27kg. Since then i have provided fruit, veg and a protain powder formula for the last 2months and organise medical treatment from the Government. From the first time i meet Remal the situation affected me in a way i had never felt before in my life. I could not stop thinking about his situation all that night and decided to rebuild his house and make him more comforatable and find out how i could safe him.

Remal on 13th March

Remal on 20th of April

From that i decided to do my own House projects starting with Remels house and are close on finishing 5 more homes with 3 more just started, because of some amazing people from europe that donated over $6000 from a fund raiser they organised for a loved one they lost. 

The families of the the first 5 houses

Thats why i started Small World Foundation for fundrasing because i cannot afford to build the houses by myself anymore so the MONEY will go directly to materials for the house projects and the wages of 3 local tradesman

The most beautiful thing about this work is everyone gets envolved and helpes from the neighbours in the community, the kids to old grand parents its absolutely unbelievable.  Maybe you could do a walk around the office or spread the word to your family and friends or share this page it would be much appreciated.
