Who We Are

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.
