Hello Everyone,
This week I can happily announce that we are continuing to surpass our goal, the total collected is currently at $21,844 US dollars, which will clearly ensure the evacuation center is built for Cangumbang.

The first payment to buy the land will be sent this week, so within a week Volunteer for Visayans will be able to formally purchase the land and have the ownership transferred over to them. At that point the construction will begin!

The center will be 40 feet by 60 feet, and stand at a height of at least 10 feet off the ground. The picture included in this blog is of the project site. The red line roughly outlines the perimeter of the center!

I have officially booked my flight, and I will be arriving in Tacloban on February 20th.:) And the center will hopefully be completed by mid April! I am amazed at how quickly this project has developed.

I am in awe of the generosity of so many individuals at Holy Angels Parish and all those who chose to become involved with the project. I dreamed of raising this money by the new year, and I am overjoyed that my dream has truly become a reality. I can't wait to share this project with all of you and help build a future for the people of Cangumbang.

Thank you so much for your support and for following this project thus far. The best is yet to come!
