Welcome to the Bohol Restoration Group

The Bohol Restoration Group (BRG) was formed from the Philippine Embassy’s call to the local Washington, DC community after the Bohol province in the Philippines was badly hit on October 15, 2013 by a 7.2 earthquake, and three weeks later, with the landfall of super typhoon Haiyan. As a result, centuries-old cultural heritage properties were severely damaged and distressed their surrounding communities.

A group of Filipinos and Americans immediately came together in an all-volunteer effort to create working committees based on professional expertise involving restoration, architecture, community advocacy, and fundraising.

Current Restoration Efforts

BRG has conducted ocular visits to these heritage sites in Bohol. Among them are: Our Lady of the Immaculate Church in Baclayon erected in 1717; Our Lady of the Assumption Church in Dauis erected in 1697; and the Church of the Most Holy Trinity in Loay erected in 1795.

Our focus is to bring together global restoration and preservation experts, who are committed to work closely with the heritage communities in saving these international cultural landmarks.
