The people behind Project Sulangan…
Jessica King founded Project Sulangan in February 2014 after the devastation caused by Typhoon Yolanda on November 8 2013. Jess went out to Sulangan in the Philippines with her brother shortly after the typhoon hit, to help provide aid to their relatives who lived on the island and to also help rebuild the village of Sulangan. After about a month, Jess then returned to the UK and wanted to continue to help rebuild the community and so Project sulangan was founded.
Jess is from a place called Sheffield in the UK and is the daughter of a filipino mother and an english father. She holds a bachelors degree in law, a masters degree in international law and has completed the legal practice course at the University of Sheffield.
Jess manages all aspects of the charity, from the fundraising to what projects the charity aims to focus on, to building and promoting the charity as a whole. Jess also goes out to the Philippines when projects are being carried out in order to see them through.
