The fund amounted to USD 90,753 or approximately 3.8 million pesos, which included both the construction of the building and the procurement of school furniture.
“One of the significant values of IsraAID is investing in young children and youth of future. We believe that children around the world should receive good quality education in the most optimal condition as possible,” said Netanel Nisan, IsraAID Philippines country director during his speech. He further stated that knew they had to do something to help rebuild the education of the students after the destruction caused by Typhoon Yolanda in 2013.
Hiroyuki Enoki, First Secretary and Labor Attaché of the Embassy of Japan in the Philippines, likewise expressed his gratitude that they were able to help the victims of the calamity.
Mayor Richard Gomez warmly appreciated the goodwill of the two agencies who both paved the way for the rehabilitation of the school. He also called for the high school students and teachers to take good care of the gift they received, which the latter vowed to do.
