The initiative

In 2013, the biggest typhoon ever recorded made landfall in Tacloban, Philippines, killing 5877 people. The rebuild was a slow process, and Timothy and the team were on hand to construct two classrooms, a medical room and toilet blocks at a school. Timothy also conducted education sessions with the local builders on how to cyclone-proof infrastructure, and educated the students on the importance of hygiene and sanitation.

The new building will play a critical role in restoring the hope and strength of the Tacloban community.

Meet Timothy

Timothy Brideson from Mount Waverley, Victoria teamed up with a group of Aussie tradies, led by Queensland builder John Tucker, to rebuild toilet facilities at a damaged school in Tacloban. The father of two was excited to put his skills to helping those in need.
