We decided to keep the costs of the freight down and after a terrific response from all over Dublin and we wanted to ensure as many boxes as possible could get delivered; so alas the boxes got sent the long journey by sea.
The cargo was delivered to the one house in the area that had lost its roof but had its walls still standing, there today 15 families still live. Pictured are some of the 200 people from two communities that were invited to the house, bags of clothes were packed for each family and distributed.
This was a small effort in the big scheme of what was needed but we’ve been asked to give a big thanks from the community of Ajuy to the Irish people for their response, digging deep when they needed help most. We wish the people in the Philippines the very best in the mammoth task of trying to get their lives back to normality.
