by Bennie A. Recebido

Sorsogon City (February 13) -- Officials of Feed the Hungry, Inc. (FHT), a non-sectarian, non-profit organization and the Commission of Filipinos Overseas (CFO) along with Sorsogon Governor and City Mayor, DepEd Schools Division Officer-In-Charge and City Schools Division Superintendent spearheaded the construction of two classroom building for Buhatan National High School in East District, this city.

Sorsogon Governor Sally A. Lee said that her present administration believes and strongly support the national government's agenda of providing opportunities for better education to all. She further added that having a favorable learning environment would better enhance the learner's desire to be taught and acquire new knowledge.

It could be noted that through the efforts of Governor Lee when she was the incumbent city mayor, the FHT allocated Php400,000 for the classroom building with donations from the Lamco International Trading Co., Inc.

The chief executive networked with officials of FHT and CFO, which is the implementing arm of the Philippine Government of Lingkod sa Kapwa Filipino (LINKAPIL) Program whose objective is to harness the potentials of overseas Filipinos as active partners in the development efforts of the country particularly in the fields of education, infrastructures and health, among others.

The provincial government allocated counterpart funds and resources for labor requirements and other additional expenses incurred for the construction.

Moreover, in a meeting conducted with Gov. Lee, they discussed possible future collaborations, which include the governor's proposal to solicit FHT's support in the construction of permanent relocation centers for calamity victims.

The Sorsogon project is only one of four infrastructure initiatives of the FHT in Southern Luzon. (PIA Sorsogon) [top]
