Bulante Elementary School Start: 2014 Complete: 2014 Destroyed Daniel S. Bulante School Close up of Bulante School destruction On November 8, the 250 km an hour Typhoon Haiyan destroyed 6 million homes in the Philippines. The three room Daniel S.Bulante school has been severely damaged and needs a new roof, a new ceiling and repairs to the walls. The children are unable to attend school until these repairs are completed. The Elementary School is 13 kilometres from Tacloban City, the city that suffered the most damage from Typhoon Haiyan. Within days a team from Builders Without Borders and members of the Rotary Club of Vancouver Fraserview, the Rotary Club of Tacloban and Rotary Club of San Juanico in the Philippines undertook assessment of the damage and a plan to repair the school . The estimated cost to repair the Elementary School is $US 20,000.
