As of December 1, 2013, there was enough cash in bank to purchase in bulk three thousand shelter kits. The total was ₱ 9,023,100.00/xx.
Of the total, ₱ 5,760,000.00/xx was used to pay for 36,000 G.I. sheets. This is the manager’s check paid to Puyat Steel, Corp.
And ₱ 3,263,100.00/xx was used for the purchase of hardware items in the shelter kit such as hammers, nails, shovels, pliers, nylon ropes, and ridge rolls.
The itemized breakdown:
The G. I. sheets will be shipped to Cebu. While the hardware items will be transported straight to Ormoc City by land via 3 wing vans, courtesy of Mr. Cesar Duque.
Thank you, Mr. Duque, for allowing us to save on transport cost! God bless you.
Mr. Duque is also constructing a pre-fab relief center that will look something like this
This is where we will pack relief goods, and segregate items for the shelter kits. Once relief operations are done, this building can be transferred to a school and used as a classroom. How cool is that?
I am very excited to give the shelter kits away. I would like to thank Mayor Ramon Oñate of the Municipality of Palompon, Province of Leyte, who is a dear friend and one of the most efficient and stellar public servants I know, for helping me come up with a criteria for distribution of the shelter kits.
Thank you Mayor Ramon.
The shelter kits will be raffled off from a list of recipients that belong to the poorest of the poor. No biases, no political color.
And then the beneficiaries have to sign a MOA stipulating these:
I need many, many more shelter kits. All in God’s plan and time. Donors continue to pledge and donate shelter kits, and for that, on behalf of the people of Ormoc and the 4th District of Leyte, I thank you.
