I would like to request for your data on the shelters built for the victims of Yolanda in Bantayan Island, cebu. In particular:
- number of shelters

- how are locations identified
- construction drawings and specifications

This information is vital for the research I am conducting for my Master's thesis for the completion of my degree here in Vienna University of Technology.

Good day! I sent an email with the endorsed letter. Unfortunately I received an email response from "boxbe" stating that my information was "waitlisted" and I am required to register to their own system. Unfortunately I do not want to register to boxbe as when I do, emails to me will also be waitlisted before I can read them. In this regard may I ask for an alternative email I can send my letter without having to register to boxbe? thank you
