Lingay and Labbu are two small communities (barrios) in Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines. Mostly poor families live there and their civilization is isolated from the province by a river. No potable water is available and thus, the river is their source of water. The mere isolation of the communities is the reason why families find their daily needs, extremely time-consuming and difficult to obtain.
Helping the families there has been a regular for us. To see smiles in their faces is a thing of beauty. To spend Christmas day with the children in those communities marks the real essence of Christmas.
This time, I though of asking for help for improving the annual outreach activity we conduct every year.
