Relief Operation, Feeding Program and Community Service of Various TVIs in Bulacan
The Bulacan Association of Technical Schools (BATS) conducted a RELIEF OPERATION last September 24-25, 2018 in Cagayan and Aparri who were affected by the Typhoon Ompong. Most of the families were moved in evacuation center for the safety of the people especially the children. The Typhoon Ompong leaves destruction to the community. This strong typhoon abolished houses, electrical power disconnected, house roof detached by the strong wind and crop of the farmers had been damaged.
The reliefs in kind were contributed by different technical vocational institutions or TVIs in Bulacan with the help of TESDA Bulacan Provincial Office and TESDA Regional Office. This was transported on the location with the assistance and support from United Kabalikat Civicom in particular the National Executive Council and Chapters from Aparri, Novo, Tuao, Santiago, Isabela, BGC Taguig, San Jose Nueva Ecija, Caloocan, and NCR Officers.
The target venue for the distribution of relief was provided by the Holy Guardian Angel Church in Tuao, Cagayan where 272 reliefs from this town were first given the relief. 273 are given to the families of Municipality of Sto. Niño, Cagayan and 144 reliefs were provided to the families of Barangay Ballang and Quinawegan, Aparri for a total of 689 reliefs provided as help to the families affected by the typhoon.
The association will continue the distribution of relief in area of Calumpit, Bulacan to be targeted on October 2, 2018 for 250 families.
Last September 14, 2018 the Lucky 8 Norzagaray Training Center Corp, one of TVI’s school in Bulacan had served 300 individuals from their feeding program.
At Present, Colegio de San Gabriel Archangel is having its community service at Sitio Binakod, Paombong, Bulacam. It is an isolated coastal area which can only be reached by motorboat for 30 minutes from the town of Paombong.
The school chose the said barangay since it is difficult for them to purchase their basic needs such as foods because they are isolated and surrounded by water. Another reason is that we can easily give the goods since we are having community service to them.
