Project Rebuild for Haiyan Survivors


To donate, click here or directly deposit it  through Paypal under the email

More than food, survivors need shelter and livelihood to start their life anew—after Haiyan claimed and orphaned thousands of lives, damaged billions-worth of properties, left thousands homeless and jobless, traumatized those who survived.

We will help them in building their life and we will start with their livelihood. The donation will be used in repairing fishermen’s boats in different towns in northern Cebu. We will also conduct art therapy for kids. We have coordinated with reputed organizations in different towns and photos will be posted here. You can also check my blog for more photos and narratives.

Last November 14-17, I went to Palompon, Leyte to send our personally gathered reliefs to those who badly needed them. Now, it is time to focus on Cebu, my beloved province.

For more photos, check photos on Aldo Banaynal’s Facebook. He is a local photojournalist here in Cebu. Or check Allan Monreal’s. He heads the Back to the Sea Project in Bantayan Island. I will be going to Bantayan Island on the first week of December to personally send the donation.

Your help will not only put smiles on Cebuano’s faces but also strengthen their dignity in building a post-Haiyan life.

Thank you,


Jona Branzuela Bering

  1. This is a really good initiative. Indeed, other than food and clothing, which I believe have been the focus of majority of the relief efforts, I think it’s about time we care about their shelter as well. A complete package, that is to say. Thank you for sharing this article. I’ll help spread the word.
