We saw a sign of relief in the faces of the people when they saw
that we were giving away not just food but also clean and decent clothes. The clothes were donated by our AAI-CFPs,
students at Palabrica National High School and the Dingle Government Workers Development Cooperative.
They also provided the truck that we used to transport our relief packs.
The Provincial Government of Iloilo helped us in securing our safety. They served as our convoy and they also
provided additional food packs. The National Confederation of Coooperatives (NatCCO) helped by providing the
food for our volunteers and also provided additional funds for the food items. Our concerted efforts saved a lot of lives
and gave the people of Batad hope to continue on. We thank Global Giving donors for their generous support.
"I believe that our efforts should not be merely one day of relief. As much as possible, we must stay connected to the people and help them to get through this tough time."
