Papa David in the green shirt & Mama Helen in the blue shirt sit with a nephew outside their shack that was later destroyed by Typhoon Fengsheng in June 2008, and it's a recent Feb. 2008 photograph that illustrates the type of squatters dwelling they built for their Family.

Papa David had just finished building a small addition to the Family home, the small room where the three t-shirts are hanging in back of their nephew Tony who's sitting in the blue swim trunks.

To illustrate the damage their home suffered during the December 2006 Typhoon that tore off their roof yet left the foundation & walls standing, the images below remind us just how fragile these types of dwellings are - even when in the Visayas, an area officially outside the Philippines Typhoon belt in Luzon.

Thanks for reading today,
