The crew is back at Phase 3 today – soon-ish to be site of 400 homes for those displaced by the flooding caused by Typhoon Sendong. After helping to complete the very first unit on a very tight schedule in time for the President’s visit, we’ve been invited back to dig the trenches for the next ones to be built. Three more buildings have been marked out and our friends on the Habitat coordination team has challenged us to dig the footings for all three today. Bear in mind that each building is made up of four homes each with a shared wall, so if they finish today 12 families will be the proud owners of some holes in the ground. Which will then be filled with concrete and have houses built on them. No mean feat.
The ten All Hands volunteers have been joined by ten local workers and as you can see the soil is already flying! Click here to see the team in full flow.
