Visiting the Tent City at the South Road Properties in Cebu City

The Family Rebuilding Center at the SRP, also known as Tent City, is a plot of land set aside by the Cebu City government in partnership with the National Red Cross for the victims of Yolanda. The refugees are well-cared-for and several Cebuanos visit the center each day to personally bring donations and gifts. Most of the residents of the Family Rebuilding Center are locals of Tacloban, Samar, and Ormoc who all suffered greatly due to the supertyphoon.

We visited one day to bring some donations and talk with some of its new residents.

The relocation/evacuation site sits right next to the bridge which connects the whole South Road Properties to the city of Talisay.

Welcome to Cebu’s Family Rebuilding Center for victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda.

The tents are pitched right in front of the Department of Public Works and Highways Regional Office at the South Road Properties.

This couple from Tacloban says they’re very lucky to be alive and even luckier to have landed in Cebu.

My mom had a heart-warming chit-chat with this lady from Tacloban.
