Families who lost their homes to super typhoon Odette in Bindoy, Negros Oriental can look forward to returning home through the generosity of Southville for Others (SFO). SFO’s “Help Rebuild a Home for Odette Victims” charity drive was able to raise almost half a million pesos which were earmarked for building better homes for the disaster victims.
Bindoy Mayor Ike Amorganda led the groundbreaking ceremony last February 28, 2022, for the housing project to be constructed through the donated funds of Southville Global Education Network (SGEN) students, parents, teachers, staff, friends, and affiliates. Mayor Amorganda thanked SFO for the GI sheets, lumber, nails, plywood, cement, and hollow blocks that will go into building safer and stronger houses for the residents.
“The presence of various sectors coming together for a common cause always inspires hope, especially for those in the education sector,” said Southville International School and Colleges President Jocelyn Tizon during the turnover ceremony held last April 8, 2022. A total of 15 of the most affected families from Barangay Ilaya, Bindoy whose houses were destroyed by tropical cyclone Odette were transferred to the project site.
Southville would like to thank again all the SFO donors, sponsors, and partners namely the SGEN Schools, Perpetual Help Community Cooperative (PHCCI), Asian Association of School HRMD Practitioners, Inc., De Montfort University, the SISC Colleges of Communication and Multimedia Arts and their respective organizations, Communication Society & Artist Anonymous, Col. Jose and Gerry Uson and the entire SGEN Stakeholders-our parents, students, alumni, faculty members, and everyone, for sharing their blessings, spreading kindness and sparking hope to those who need it the most. Your help has touched many Filipino lives.
