Project Coast-2-Coast, Team 14 is RECRUITING

Project Coast-2-Coast is headed to Iligan City, Philippines this time round....

And we are looking for 20 BIG-hearted and committed individuals to join us on this expedition.

If you know of anyone who might be keen to embark on this journey with us, do share with them and encourage them to come forward, for you never know whose life they will touch deeply.

Project background:
Iligan was hit by Typhoon Sendong, in December 2011, which left more than 1,000 people dead and many missing. It had been many months now since the typhoon, and thousands of families are still in the Internally Displaced People (IDP) camps.

Provincial Capital Cagayan de Oro (CDO) being one of the worst-hit cities along with Iligan during Sendong, received limited help due to its accessibility. With Iligan located 89.8km away from CDO, it received minimal restoration aid.

There are local NGOs working on the ground to restore Iligan, such as SAGIP Iligan, a group of young professionals who had responded to emergency-and post-emergency needs. They are now into helping children get back to school. Help from external NGOs are highly sought after that will play a big part in helping Iligan in post-disaster restoration.

Please do not hesitate to contact Jinnie at or 98735023 to get a copy of the application form or to find out more about the project.

About Project Coast-2-Coast
Project Coast2Coast, under the umbrella of the then West Coast Citizens' Consultative Committee (CCC) [now renamed as Ayer Rajah-West Coast CCC], was initiated in January 2005, shortly after the tsunami. It was a community-based overseas humanitarian expedition programme aimed at providing good overseas learning opportunities to local volunteers so as to inculcate in them a sense of public spiritedness, global social responsibility and also to enhance their inter-personal, project management and leadership skills.
