Further, the Scandinavian Children's Mission is still working on reconstructing school buildings in Tacloban, which have been affected by the typhoon in November 2013. One large Elementary School for around 1'500 pupils, which collapsed in the storm, is completed up to 25% already. The second building is the High School in the Scandinavian Village, which was also totally destroyed by the typhoon. The new building shall be stronger and properly built and should be handed over by the end of June.
The Scandinavian Children's Mission will get in contact with the local government about starting a permanent work in Tacloban. The SCM has already had some projects there in the 90ties, so they have a long history in that area, which should enable them to expand their work in the city, that has been struck by the typhoon Haiyan in November 2013.
We are looking forward to hearing much positive news from the Scandinavian Children's Mission and seeing their projects progress in the coming years!
