Typhoon Ursula Home Rebuild Campaign

My name is Tim James. I’m a 45yo Australian living on Tablas Island, in the Philippines, with my wife and daughter.

On Chrismas Day, 2019, Typhoon Phanfone (Ursula) struck the central Philippines. At least 41 people were killed, and many families lost their homes in the destructive 100mph (180km/h) winds.

Our house survived the typhoons with virtually no damage, but many of our neighbors houses have been damaged or destroyed.

This Crowd Funding Campaign is to help some families at Cabalian village, on southern Tablas Island, rebuild their homes. Our goal is to help 6 families rebuild their homes, at a cost of $500 per home. This is the bare minimum they need per home, but it will go a long way towards helping these families get back on their feet. Please help us reach our goal!

We will go around to each family home, and assess the building materials needed by each family, and then we plan to purchase the materials required to rebuild or repair their homes. We will document all purchases, and the distribution, to ensure transparency and fairness.

We will video the donations being presented to the local families, and upload the video to our YouTube Channel, when this campaign is concluded. And we will do a follow-up video in a couple of months, when all the construction is complete.

Here is a link to our YouTube video of the typhoon...
