Solar Lanterns distribution in Misibis, tiwi, albay
February 21, 2017, 9:00 AM, Bicol Region - Two months after the onslaught of typhoon Nona in the province of Albay, the small barangay of Misibis with a population of 2,192 is still "in the dark", since restoration efforts for electricity have not started in their area. But a ray of light was finally seen when the Philippine Nurses Association and PNAA Foundation raised funds to purchase 120 solar lanterns from Philippine Humanitarian Coalition (PHC) and decided to donate it to the victims of typhoon Nona.
110 Day Care and Kinder Pupils from the Aeta tribe arrived in the small barangay center of Misibis, in Tiwi, Albay for the giving of the solar lanterns. Their smiles and laughter could not be contained upon seeing the lanterns, schools supplies and snacks brought by the group of motorcyclists called Riders That Care (RTC) led by LTO Asst. Regional Director Vincent Nato. With the coordination led by PHC, the lanterns were delivered to The Lewis College who coordinated with the other groups who were more than willing to give additional support for this event: Tiwi Oragon Riders Club, Club 150i YSMX Bicol, Bicol Riders Group, Road Runner Daraga, Albay Riders Club, Address Suzuki Riders, Mr. Vince Villar and Mr. Ian Maravilla. Through their efforts, the Aeta children and their families would finally have light even in their dark community. The barangay chairman and all recipients gave their heartfelt thanks and praise for all they received.

Barrio Napo, Polangui, Albay Support
February 27, 2017, “Last year, Christmas included individuals from the Bicol Region especially the town of Polangui, Albay which was hit the hardest by typhoon Nina. Barrio Napo is one of the barrios under the municipality of Polangui. Lots of people lost their homes because the materials from which they were constructed are not solid. As we all are aware, shelter is one of the most important necessities in our lives. The people of Barrio Napo are very grateful for the kindness of PNAMDC and PHC for their donation of galvanized corrugated metal roofing (yero) and boxes of umbrella nails that have made a significant difference”. The people of Barrio Napo send its heartfelt thank you to PNA Metro DC.
