Somebody knocked a hole in the wall through the kitchen cabinets

There is a large hole in the drywall/sheetrock through the kitchen cabinets. So both the wood of the cabinets and the sheetrock is knocked through. How Do I repair this? I do not think just nailing another piece of wood in there is good enough as it will mean that the cabinets/wood will not be insulated and probably exposed to moisture and/or temperature change. I can see the brick exterior right through the hole. How do I repair this? It is about a 1 ft by 8 inch hole.

Do I need to cut the wood from the cabinets further to give space for taping?

What caused the damage? Because there may be other issues with the integrity of the cabinet box too. It would likely be better to remove the cabinet and fix the wall properly.

A hole in the back of the cabinets not going to have any effect on it. It's done all the time to run water and drain lines.
Got a picture?
I'd just worry about patching the wall behind the cabinets.
