In response to Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) which devastated many islands in the Philippines last November 2013, YWAM Philippines is taking part in the ‘Adopt A Barangay Project’ in the northern Cebu city of Bogo. This was a response to the Lord’s direction to YWAM Philippines Leadership Team to focus on the need for a long-term rebuilding initiative. The Adopt A Barangay Project is a community-based rehabilitation plan designed by the Bogo City government to directly address the rehabilitation needs of the communities recovering from the Yolanda disaster. The program has identified 4,000 families as the most vulnerable and priority beneficiaries of the rebuilding and relocation component of the program.
Last November 8, 2017, on the anniversary of the super typhoon YWAM Philippines marked the completion of phase 1 of the project! We had a special moving-in celebration where the first 20 families excitedly took possession of their new homes! It was a great time of rejoicing and we thank God for His amazing grace in bringing us this far together! Renewed hope for the future was evident in each family and what a joyful day it was! We continue to this present day to engage with the community through ongoing discipleship to see the vision of a people who love God, love their neighbors, and make a difference in the world realized!
We also look forward to future community development projects that will bring continued positive change and livelihood opportunities. Thank you for all your support and partnership in this ongoing project.
Please continue to back us up in prayer and giving, or even volunteering as we look to initiate phase 2 of our project! Our pledge to build houses for 150 families is a huge step of faith and we continue to look to our miracle-working God for the breakthroughs we need!
Join us to see the good work God has begun to complete for His glory. May God bless you for your faithfulness, generosity, and partnership in restoring hope to needy families! Let’s continue to put a smile on God’s face together!
Here's the recent outreach to Hope Village. We look forward to another missions trip this 2023! Stay tune for more details.
