“This is how a country is built from the ground up, anchored on bayanihan, inviting and welcoming all to join, and be awed that community after community rises as the fruit of caring and working.”
– Tito Boy Montelibano
AKLAN STORY. Meet Tatay Hopecio Cadivida, 77 years old and part of a team that will help rebuild Aklan. His team travelled for 16 hrs together with his 4 sons and 1 grandchild. Truly, no one is too old to help and nation-building can be a family affair!
BAYANI ON WHEELS. “We got a team that traveled from Manila to Leyte to raise funds and friends and to take part in the Bayani Challenge. All for Leyte! “More than 24 hrs bus ride to Leyte then biked from San Juanico Bridge up to Tanuan, Leyte: 25 kms. Saw some of the devastation of Yolanda, mass graves, wrecked houses. Also observed that bikes are the main mode of transportation here. More reason for team Bayani On Wheels to achieve our goal of sending 400 bikes here.” – Maurice Alcantara, Bayani On Wheels
CEBU INSPIRATION. “This is what keeps us going. The smiles that will be carried on to the future. We have left our loved ones behind to build communities and inspire the young to dream and work towards a wonderful Philippines because we know that what we hold are not just bricks but building blocks of Filipino identity.” – Mark Aquino, Volunteer, Pilipinas Natin
