Sanitary project

DAVAO CITY (PNA) - The ground-breaking ceremony of the proposed sanitary toilet project for the victims of typhoon "Pablo" by Vice President Jejomar Binay's fraternity was held Wednesday in New Bataan, Compostela Valley Province.

The two-door project will be constructed inside the Cabinuangan National High School in New Bataan which also has the tent city for the 132 families, also victims of the typhoon.
"It takes 10 to 15 days to finish the project," said Vivino "Bibs" Jalandoni, president of the Beta Phi Alumni Association AA253 of the Alpha Phil Omega (APO) International Service Fraternity, who attended the ground-breaking rites last Sunday.

Binay is an alumni of the APO Eta Chapter of the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman campus.

Also present at the ceremony were New Bataan Mayor Lorenzo Balbin Jr., Municipal Administrator Lyle Cabunoc, School Principal Himaya Maguidato, Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office designate Engr. Rocel Bongcawil, disaster coordinator Chona Pamposa and APO Southeastern Mindanao Section 2 chair Eden Ascano.

Jalandoni's group facilitated the project principally funded by the Evangelische Kirchengemeinde Hamm of Hamm, Germany headed by Pastor Otmar Ruether, who sent P60,000.
