PMPI and the local government of Guiuan, Eastern Samar signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) earlier today for the rehabilitation of Homonhon and Manicani Islands that were devastated by Typhoon Yolanda last November 2013.
PMPI praised the plan of the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) to erect a new historical marker in Homonhon, an island within the boundaries of Guiuan, Eastern Samar. Homonhon is the site of Magellan’s first landing, on March 16, 1521, in the archipelago that was eventually named the Philippines.
It has been a year since Typhoon Yolanda hit several areas in the Visayas and there have also been a lot of initiatives coming from different organizations to help the surviving victims to build back better.
PMPI, on its part, conducted a series of activities for commemorating the year after the destructive typhoon.
