Typhoon Yolanda Survivors Transfer to New Homes

A team composed of leaders from CFC United Arab Emirates (UAE) ANCOP, CFC Cebu ANCOP, and representatives from the local government of Bogo, Cebu handed over eight houses that were completed from funds donated by CFC UAE. The turnover of the houses to the home partners, all of them victims of typhoon Yolanda, was held last January 11, 2016. 


Present during the handing over ceremony were Former Deputy Director of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) Hon. Carlo Martinez, along with Bogo City’s Councilors, ANCOP Middle East Coordinator Ramuel Garcia, ANCOP UAE Coordinator Danilo Abutas, CFC Cebu Provincial Area Director Arnel Sacris, CFC Cebu ANCOP Coordinator Ric Martinez, CFC ANCOP Global Operations Manager Elmer Cadiz, members of the Project Implementation Team, home partners, and beneficiaries, among others.


Martinez thanked CFC ANCOP for being a beacon of light in a time of darkness for the people of Bogo during the onslaught of Yolanda. He also pledged to expedite water and electricity connection and improve the access road to the site.


CFC Middle East Coordinator Ramuel Garcia exhorted everyone to rejoice in every situation knowing that God will always provide and protect His people. He asked for prayers for continued and strengthened partnership between the Bogo, Cebu LGU and CFC ANCOP and for more generous donors from CFC UAE in the light of the current political and economic situation in the Middle East. Garcia also exhorted everyone to be grateful to God for His blessings, mercy, and compassion.


Cadiz and Sacris likewise thanked everyone involved and gave messages of hope for all home partners as they highlighted other ANCOP programs which will be implemented in Bogo in the coming months.


In a simple ceremony, a check for PHP 1.4M representing funds for the next batch of houses was handed over. CFC UAE ANCOP Coordinator Danny Abutas expressed gratitude to everyone involved in the project. He requested CFC Cebu ANCOP to complete the remaining 22 houses so that they can be awarded to the next batch of families at the earliest possible time.
