Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) Philippines, the oldest international bank in the country, recently upped the ante in its efforts to support the rehabilitation of families affected by the super typhoon Yolanda in eastern Visayas. The bank partnered with non-government organizations to build new housing, school buildings and provide livelihood programs to the typhoon victims. One of the projects was the construction of  a Gawad Kalinga village in Ticad, Bantayan, Cebu(Main photo). The bank also hooked up with Habitat for Humanity to build houses in Tacloban, Leyte, and in Burawen, Leyte. Late last year, the bank funded the building of a school building and computer laboratory  to Tindog Elementary School in Medellin, Cebu (below). The project was a joint effort of SCB Philippines and Children’s Hour.
