Just coming back from Malapascua. It is inexplicable what happen up there. There are no words to find to explain what happen. All our friends lost their homes. The poor people lost everything. Their houses are no more. They have nothing left just their spirit. The day after the Typhoon I was driving with my friend through the half Island of Cebu seeing all the damages. But tears only run over my face tears of admiration. Everybody was out in the streets, cleaning up the pieces left gathering the last pieces of wood to build a shelter. Collecting the cloth, wash it dry it over what is lying on the floor. People are smiling and all together cleaning up. Not even 24 hours after the worst ever measured Typhoon (Cyclon, Hurican) passed the area we are able driving up the road as everybody helped to clean it. You can't imagine. 
Please all who want to help,Sea Explorers Philippines and Ocean Vida Resort will use your donation directly use for the rebuilding of houses in Malapascua Island and food supplies.
Thank you very much for your help

Ocean Vida Resort and Sea Explorers could ensure that there is enough food and fresh water supply for the whole staff and their families. 

At the moment we are in search of tetanus vials for the people in Malapascua. Due to lots of sharp articles, rusty nails etc there is a big danger of getting injuries and most people have now tetanus vaccination. 

We are very lucky to be able gathering 50 Vials already and should receive another 1000 beginning of the coming week thanks to the help of our local friends. This is at the moment no easy task as everywhere this medicine is very much in need to keep this disease from spreading.

We also where sitting down with people of a Swiss humanitarian organisation on spot. They shared their knowledge about more durable construction of houses in storm and earthquake areas. Together with a friend working in construction in Cebu we are developing now the design for the houses. 

We will keep you posted with the further development.
