Forty days after Tropical Storm Sendong (International name: Washi) hit the Philippines and killed more than 1000 persons, the Philippines responded by building homes for the thousands of families displaced.

Habitat for Humanity is helping rebuild Cagayan de Oro City, while Gawad Kalinga is focusing its efforts in Iligan City. Private companies like diversified conglomerate San Miguel Corporation pitched in to help by funding 5000 homes for the displaced.
