Community Builds School through Bayanihan, Receives Chairs after Kids Seen Sitting on Floor

When Kara David and her husband went to visit a community of Mangyans who live in the mountainous areas of Brgy. Malo, Bansud Mindoro Oriental, they learned that the locals were able to build a school through ‘bayanihan’.

The school was built at the foot of the mountains but because the locals didn’t have a lot of money, they were not able to buy chairs for the children.

But having a school building was already a good improvement to the kids’ classes; thus, they did not mind sitting on the floor.

After seeing the condition of the children in that school, Kara David mobilized her “Project Malasakit” to collect donations so the kids can have chairs to use. Seeing the plight of these poor Mangyan kids, a lot of people donated money to the cause; donations poured in from as far Canada, Italy, and the US.

Thanks to these donations, Project Malasakit was able to buy chairs for the kids.

Kara David also posted that the donations were actually more than what was needed for the kids; thus, they are planning to use the rest of the money to help the Mangyan community have better water system so they will now have access to clean, potable water.

It was a good thing Kara and her husband were able to see the plight of these kids so the children and the community can find the help they greatly needed.

Good job!
