Davao (Malikongkong) Water Project Update
Richmond Sunrise has supported the water project of RC Manila San Miguel - see this video for a project update:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bC34_0JA9w
The mountainous region close to Davao City in the Philippines was ravaged by forest fire; this destroyed the water pipeline that served the Malikongkong village. It serviced approx. 1000 families with clean, safe water.
The local Rotary clubs put together a project to replace the pipeline and as our club had visited the area on an exchange project, we were asked to provide some financial assistance.
We are now a Silver Sponsor of the pipeline which is in process of being rebuilt.

Asian Ruggedized Education System (ARES) made a great wave of change in education for Lourdes National High School as it answered the need of the school to offer the best package in learning it ever had - the “Classroom in a Box”.

The formal turnover of the package was done on February 26 with the ARES team from Rotary World Help Canada President Bonnie Sutherland, ARES Coordinator Philippines Literacy Project – Rotary Club of Richmond Sunrise and Director Rotary World Help-Canada Elena Agala, a member of our club.

The ARES donation of laptops and customized educational software to schools in the Philippines enabled students to continue their studies during COVI-19 and other natural disasters that affected the community .
