The Bayani Association on Saipan installed five solar street lights at the Bajao tribe resettlement area in Bugo in Cagayan de Oro, the Philippines. The project is intended to provide safety and lights to a remote area that’s inaccessible to the power supply from the Cagayan de Oro Power Light Co.

Bayani volunteers presented the solar street lamps to the tribal families, during which four families also received solar lights for household use, mosquito nets, and a sleeping mat. Another three families received care packages, including 10 kilos of rice, soy sauce, cooking oil, canned goods, noodles, laundry and bath soap, shampoo, toothpaste, sugar, and coffee.

Bayani volunteers also completed the repair of the restroom at the resettlement area. Recently, the group provided the tribal families with care packages, including kitchen equipment and roofing materials.

“We are thankful to the Bayani Association for providing us the street lightings,” one Badjao tribe leader said. “It’s a dream come true. …It is now safe to walk at night.”

Association president Annamae Adaza credited RMR, A.J. Camacho, Johney Yamson, and Napoleon Balingit for donating financial assistance to make the project a reality.

The Bayani Association is a non-profit organization under the umbrella of the United Filipino Organization. (PR)
