4 B’s (Box, bags, books, buttons)

At  last,  the balikbayan box from NYC, USA via Johnny Ocean,  came today with chock full of books, bags, candies and clothes for our adopted community in Alabang, Muntinlupa, Philippines, we fondly call HAPI-Riles. It is a nice feeling to make someone happy and HAPI.

Some books from the USA

More local books came from Daniel Hill, Chief, HAPI – Youth Divison  for the HAPI library.

A button pin maker was donated by HAPI to Alabang HAPI-Riles to promote
self- sufficiency,  fulfilling our mission to teach people how to fish so they can eat for a lifetime.
We also hope that the nutritional campaign will be financed by  the small businesses we have given
to the HAPI-Riles Poject implementer, Jamie del Rosario Martinez.

Gerontocracy in the Philippines

This country, the Philippines,  is run by a Gerontocracy (rule of the old). The issue of the bill to lower the minimum age of criminal liability to 9 years old indicates a lack of progress in the outlook of many of our solons today. It would seem that this proposition is a mere shortcut or […]

Humanism, not religion, is our salvation

Typhoon Ruby is headed our way and already I see dozens of Facebook posts urging people to pray that it will be deflected, for God to spare the country, and so on.
