Brgy. 105, Tondo Fire Relief Operation

We deeply thank everyone who supported our fire relief efforts.  Please see the report below showing the contributions and expenses for this emergency relief operation. 


The local government allowed the families to return and rebuild their homes at the same sites.  Those steel beams and remaining concrete from the burned buildings were mostly removed.  Manila mayor supplied these families with construction supplies (iron sheets, plywood, nails) but only to families who are registered residents and voters.  For families who didn’t get these supplies are rebuilding their homes out of scrap materials.


We deeply thank everyone for your contributions! Our special thanks goes to the Office of the Vice President of the Philippines and VP Leni Robredo for sending thousands of grocery items. Without all your help and support, this would not have been possible.

“A catastrophic fire hit the area around Barangay 105 in Tondo on Friday, leaving two children and one fireman dead, and robbing over 2000 families of their homes and the little possessions they had. This is the heartland of Project Pearls, and the very area where the charity is carrying out daily feeding programs for local children, as well as educational and medical missions. The fire has hit the area hard and the charity is currently asking for whatever help and support people can give, so some of the most unfortunate residents of Metro Manila get a chance to recover and rebuild.” – When in Manila
