Following the devastating Typhoon in December 2013, Khalsa Aid launched a relief program to assist the victims. The relief team adopted a small town on the coast called San Dionisio, in the province of Iloilo. This town was badly hit by the Typhoon and over 90% of the local community was affected. Khalsa Aid set up a semi-permanent base in a nearby town and used this to accommodate all the visiting volunteers.
Khalsa Aid commissioned a group of local carpenters to build new boats for the community so that they can start earning a living. The team built 30 new boats and also assisted the locals with the clear up operation and supplied building materials for the rebuilds and repairs to the damaged homes.
