Ulticon Builders Donates Bunkhouse to Yolanda Victims

On November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda, tagged as the most powerful storm to make landfall in history, hit the Philippines particularly the islands of Samar and Leyte. 1, 473, 251 families were affected, majority of which were left homeless. 6340 people died while 1061 went missing.

Amidst all these devastation, the resiliency and will of Filipinos stood out. The nation united to extend a helping hand to the victims. The international community also sent astounding amounts of donations in various forms. Disaster-relief goods poured in to aid our fellowmen whose spirits were, although dampened by Yolanda, remained unwavering in spite of the calamity. Food and water, clothing, medicine and health services were the top priorities and were sent to the survivors, albeit with difficulty. The government and the private sector alike came together for one cause. Other private entities, like Ulticon Builders, Inc., however, found their own alternative ways to help.

Ulticon Builders, Inc., in collaboration with the Department of Public Works and Highways  (DPWH) and other contractors in Region 11 came together to help the survivors of Yolanda. They hired a company to construct a bunkhouse in accordance with the standards laid out by the DPWH. The bunkhouse was divided into several partitions that served as rooms for the affected families giving them a sense of privacy. Ulticon made it sure that the bunkhouse was built and completed in a matter of weeks to promptly address the survivors’ need for shelter.

This benevolent act of Ulticon that was in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), was deeply appreciated by the Yolanda survivors. The humble bunkhouse, although incomparable to the homes that they lost because of Yolanda, was enough to remind them that they were not alone in rebuilding their lives after the storm. And that was what the Filipinos showed the world: that the spirits of camaraderie and compassion, as seen in the donation of Ulticon Builders, are indeed waterproof.
