Our Impact: Isabel, The Philippines

Isabel is a retired school teacher and shares a home with her son and his family in Guiuan. After Typhoon Haiyan ripped away their home’s tin roof and destroyed nearly all of its contents, Isabel and her family had to sleep sitting up to keep their faces out of the water that poured in each time it rained.
Despite the terrifying experience, Isabel was thrilled to receive one of Habitat for Humanity’s shelter repair kits.
“We will rebuild. We will survive,” she said. “After our homes are rebuilt, we will start planting again. There are still coconuts to plant.”
