It was a hot day on the 20th of August when Tzu Chi Staff started bundling up needed parts for the 200 houses already sent to Marawi.
With 40 already built, the heavy metal foundation rods are bundled into batches to be flown to the Temporary Housing Units site for the displaced population of Marawi. Rico Balid, the instructor of the Marawi builders, looked over the slow but steady loading of the parts to the loading van. Bundles of shovels are grouped into neat piles will also be sent to Marawi.
