Cawayan, Carles. Beneficiaries of the livelihood project prepared a sumptuous lunch with the fruits of their labor: fruits and vegetables from home gardens; shrimp, shellfish, crabs and fish from the ponds. They take a loan from the revolving fund to keep their farms running in order to generate income.
Bobog, Ajuy. Church members who are beneficiaries gave a portion of their earnings to repair the wall which was damaged by the strong winds brought by T. Haiyan. Most of them are small tenant farmers raising pigs and “native chickens”. They also tend ponds which produce shrimp, shellfish, oysters, crabs and fish.
2. Joint Mission Trip to Gerik, Perak.
On 24-25 June 2018, CREST sent a small team to Kampung Tebang Lama and Kampung Chuweh, Gerik together with Hospital Lam Wah Ee (HLWE) Volunteers, Penang. Our role is to conduct assessment focusing on community development.
HLWE Volunteers have been serving these communities by providing free medical care and health screening.
During the trip, one of the volunteers slipped and injured his leg. With the help from the villagers, we managed to make a stretcher from tree branches and plastic bags.
CREST is in discussion with HLWE Volunteers for further collaboration in our future projects.
