After Super Typhoon Mangkhut, known as Super Typhoon Ompong in the Philippines, has hit northern Luzon in September, Kaloob sent a solidarity call to support Humanity and Inclusion (Handicap International) “cash for service” project in Pinukpuk municipality, in the province of Kalinga. Thanks to everyone's mobilization, we have been able to launch effective action with the local barangays.

Barangay Camalog:
the inhabitants unite to repair a road and a dike

Super Typhoon Mangkhut - Solidarity in Action

“Typhoon Ompong destroyed a road and a small dike in one area of Barangay Camalog that was previously the lifeline of the community. It allowed farmers to bring their produce directly from their farm to the market and to their home table. However, the road had several large holes and a dike was badly damaged.
The whole barangay converged to exhibit an impressive “bayanihan” practice (spirit of community work, implying unity and cooperation). Tricycle drivers gathered rocks to fill up the holes by mixing them with sand and cement. A farmer donated a whole pig to feed the workers. Women cooked food and helped with the mixing of cement. Old men and teenagers worked together to repair the damaged dike with large stones and cement. By the afternoon, small vehicles could pass and transport the produces to the market.”
