Infrastructure – Classroom Projects in 2015

Twelve new classrooms amounting to almost $200,000 were turned over to different municipal school districts in areas hit in November 2013 by Supertyphoon Haiyan/Yolanda. KPMG, LLP, through Bobby Tamayo, donated two classrooms in Tapaz, Capiz. The Filon Brothers (Luke, Zachary, and Jacob), the Tu Bi Foundation, Dr. and Mrs. Bayani Manalo, and Kona Visayan Club funded four classrooms in Kabangbang, Bantayan Island, Cebu. Alumnae of the College of Holy Spirit of North America augmented the FtH disaster relief funds for two classrooms in Bungsuan, Capiz. Two classrooms in Laserna, Aklan, were built from various donations to Feed the Hungry’s Haiyan Disaster Relief Fund.
