Money raised on Big Island provides water to 99 households in Philippines
Money raised on the Big Island for the Philippine Typhoon Relief Fund is now providing water to 99 households in one of the storm-ravaged areas of the Philippines.
“The money the Hilo community raised through the collaboration of the County of Hawaii — spearheaded by Rose Bautista — and the Hilo Visayan Club — spearheaded by Ken Cameron of Hilo Guitars and Dayday Hopkins — was used to provide potable water to 99 households,” said spokesman Bernard Balsis.
The homes are in Tabang Cagayan Village, Barangay Lumbia and the City of Cagayan de Oro.
A sturdy new water tank was constructed to withstand future storm winds.
“The Big Island Visayan community thanks all who contributed to make this possible,” Balsis said.
