Bukal Life Care was originally founded in 2009 in response to the Typhoon Pepeng (in the Cordilleras) and Tropical Storm (in Pampanga). Since then, we have been involved in numerous responses over the years, including Cagayan de Oro and Benguet. Most recently, we have been involved in Disaster Response/Crisis care in response to the earthquake in Bohol, and Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in Leyte, Cebu, and Iloilo.

Our team is trained in several methods of crisis response, which we utilize individually or in an integrated fashion, depending on the specific circumstances. Among these are NOVA (individual or group crisis response, CISD/CISM, PFA, and Psychosocial Processing. Additionally, members have been trained in play, art, and story therapy for children.
We have a graduated training program for volunteers, chaplains and team leaders/trainers.
