If you are interested in Volunteering your time and your technical and professional services, please drop us a line. These communities desperately need our technical assistance in rebuilding their homes devastated by Yolanda and/or the October 15, 2013 major earthquake.

Architects + Post-Disaster Reconstruction
Lessons Learned from Architecture for Humanity
In an effort to share our experience in post disaster reconstruction with those who are engaged in the rebuilding of the Philippines post Typhoon Haiyan, we will be hosting a training session outside of Manilla this Sunday.
Please join Architecture for Humanity's Eric Cesal for a training and discussion about the architects role in post-disaster reconstruction and how you can assist in the Philippines' recovery.
AfH Toronto Chapter have expressed their interest in helping in the Haiyan Rebuild Effort in the Philippines. We are currently coordinating and communicating with them toward these efforts.
Thank you AfH Toronto Chapter for your support!
We had a very fruitful meeting with a couple of members of the Architecture for Humanity Philadelphia chapter tonight. They are very interested to work with the AfH Manila Chapter on the Haiyan Rebuilding effort. They are now getting organized so that when we are ready to work on the rebuild, they will be ready as well. We will be in constant coordination with them from here on.
Thank you AfH Philadelphia Chapter!
We are trying to organize the mobilization of this chapter for the rebuild in the Philippines.
To all Members and Volunteers, can you please fill in the "Occupation/Employer" and the "Location" information in this website? This will help us fine tune our strategy for our action plan knowing how we can properly use our human resources and which local disaster area they can be most helpful.
This is our initial step on how we can start the membership in this chapter website going.
Architecture for Humanity's main page has instructions how you can help with the reconstruction effort:

Hello fellow chapter members,
I have noticed that almost half of the chapter membership are based in the US. I am attending the USGBC Greenbuild event in Philadelphia, PA, USA, next week (November 19 -22, 2013). If any member of this chapter is going to this event, maybe we can meet up?
Please post your reply and comments here. I am looking forward to hear from you.
Hello fellow members and volunteers!
I just joined the AFH Manila, Philippine Chapter today. I have been following AFH for the last 7 years. I am very glad a Philippine Chapter have been organized.
There seem to be no activity on this chapter that I have seen yet. I just want to touch base with you all!
