Re-creation Areas in Village Cagbuhangin, Ormoc City, Island of Leyte, Philippines

Just before Typhoon Haiyan hit the area in 2013 this village was undergoing a bigger construction work for a recreation area including pool area and meeting cottages. Few months after finalised construction the area was devasted by the Typhoon and is now left with destroyed pool and cottages. 

In collaboration with the local community Native Narrative will be re-designing this recreation area.
