Sprawled on a bare mountainside at the mercy of heavy rains and strong winds, these bamboo-slat houses are fragile shelters for the evacuees of the 2009 Typhoon Frank ("Ondoy") that hit Metro Manila and Rizal Province.
These houses represent the new beginnings for families in Tanay municipality whose homes were totally wrecked by the rush of raging 12-foot deep floodwater.

with rain drizzling on their head and sticky mud clinging to their shoes, the mission volunteers went up and down the village to assess the condition of the evacuees.

Boy transporting water from the village well to the house

Feel the rhythm of an ordinary rain in Gabihan.
