On December 16, Tropical Storm Washi made landfall in Mindanao and brought heavy rains that caused massive flooding in 13 provinces of northern Mindanao including the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. As part of its continuing assistance to the victims, USAID rehabilitated a two-classroom building at the Iligan City East High School, one of the schools severely damaged by Washi. USAID provided 450 new student desks, computer tables and chairs, reference materials, and teacher and student supplies. USAID also granted 10 computers to replace the previous equipment provided by the Mission that were destroyed by the flooding. The assistance will help students continue their studies and restore a sense of normalcy to assist in their recovery from the disaster.
