Leyte – the most affected province by the super typhoon Haiyan (locally called “Yolanda”) has been through a lot since the typhoon struck last November 2 to 11, 2013.
Even though Ormoc wasn’t swept directly by the storm surge that swallowed Tacloban City, Ormoc still received extensive damages from the vicious winds of the super typhoon.
Driving across Leyte, it is still blatant to see the damages that has marked Province. Roofless buildings, broken down houses, collapsed foot holds & fallen trees to list a few. The damages were also proportional to the number of newly built graves along the roadside – and what these imply.
Even so, the survivors had to live on and continue to thrive.
As part of its “Roof for Education” campaign, Colorsteel Family has chosen Cogon Central School to be one of the recipients of the school building re-roofing project.
Colorsteel Family completed re-roofing a two-classroom school building just in time for the opening of classes in June.
Colorsteel Family visited Cogon Central School during their annual BRIGADA ESKWELA to officially turn-over the re-roofing project to the school principal, Mrs. Editha Laurente, and the school faculty.
