    All Hands Volunteers Project Bohol at work in earthquake devastated Antiquera on Bohol Island

    I finished my three weeks of working with All Hands Volunteers' Project Bohol in the area around Antequera on Bohol Island yesterday. It was an unforgettable experience for me and all of the other volunteers who came to Bohol from all over the world to help earthquake victims directly with our own labor.

    A devastated neighborhood (barrio) in Antequera as Project Bohol begins to take down and de-construct the wrecked buildings. This area looks very different today, but more work still remains.  

    A local woman weaves a basket. The residents of Antequera are renown for their handicrafts.


    We worked to de-construct wrecked homes, schools, and chapels, while salvaging as much of the materials as possible for reconstruction. Building materials are expensive commodities for these rural people.
