Village Aide - Philippines
Supported by the Rotary Club of Como Jannali, the program provides medical, dental services, clean water filters, school repairs, school equipment vocational training and feeding programs to a number of villages in Bohol.

Kit arrives on truck, helping unload, house with family, This is the 3rd house provided by Como Jannali. The houses are of sustainable materials, some of about 150 houses supplied so far by Village Aide Rotary supporters. The 100 supplied before the earthquake all survived . This area was promised by authorities 1000 houses for destitute families and after 12 months none have been built. We have a waiting list of 40 very needy families many living under temporary shelter.
Sand Filters - Bohol, Philippines
Went to Maribojoc with materials in another vehicle to deliver 5th house kit in Barangay Handig, Maribojoc, Bohol. As soon as we got to the municipal building my truck overheated, radiator had puncture. Baby called Loloy so her truck can tow my truck to shop. The truck with materials went to site with Ms Bebeth Somozo to the recipient area Mr & Mrs Melvin & Annabel Laporte with 2 children.
