23 SOLAR PANELS SHED LIGHT IN OLB COMMUNITY

 

THE ANCOP Our Lady of Banneux Community in San Mateo, Rizal is one of many built with the help of generous partners and donors. It has been home to ninety-one (91) families since 2011.

 

Recently, the delegates of the CFC YFC Social Actions, a pre-event of the 25th YFC International Conference, immersed themselves in the area, experiencing community activities with the home partners. One of their experiences was helping CFC ANCOP turn over solar panels to the community.

 

CFC ANCOP delivered 23 solar panels on April 11, 2018 to help light up the lives of the families living there. Present in the turn-over of the panels were representatives from CFC ANCOP Global Foundation Inc., namely Nathaniel Gomez; Ronaldo Caspe; and Chito Mata, ANCOP Shelter Program Head. Sam and Fe Flores, members of the area’s Project Implementation Team represented the OLB Community.

 

These solar panel packages included batteries, inverters, cables and light bulbs. The solar panels will help families do their work and chores even at night. Sixteen (16) of these solar panel packages were donated by CFC China and the remaining seven (7) were from ANCOP Canada.

 

One of the families who will benefit from the donation is Arly and Ester Bose’s family. They have been members of the Couples for Christ for 20 years already and are living in OLB for more than a year now. The couple, married since 1985, has faced different struggles like moving from one place to another and renting spaces just to live comfortably. But when Arly suffered a stroke, the couple couldn’t make ends meet and was evicted from the house they were renting.

 

They found a new home in Our Lady of Banneux and live there together with their two grandchildren—Althea, 6 and Ian Carl, 9. (Article by Diana Mendoza)
