Seventy-three (73) were confirmed dead, many of whom were children with ages ranging from 2-15 years old. Twenty-four (24) have so far been confirmed missing as attested by members of the families and other relatives. The twenty-four reported missing in December 2009 were never found and so the total number of fatalities in this parish rose to ninety-seven. On October 8th the construction of 141 housing units was officially inaugurated and blessed in the Carmelite parish of Saint Isidore, Labrador, Philippines. The Carmelite Curia was able to make a donation of 10,000 euros towards the reconstruction project which was blessed by Father Kevin Alban O.Carm., Bursar General, with the assistance of several Carmelites from Manila, as well as the bursar of the mission in Papua New Guinea. The donation was made possible through the generosity of the Society of the Little Flower and its donors in Britain, Ireland, and several European countries. Money for this project was also raised by Third Order groups in the Provinces of Saint Elias (New York) and the Most Pure Heart of Mary (Chicago).
