Bantay Kalikasan, CFMC team up to repair daycare centerAs part of the area development approach of Bantay Kalikasan and the Ipasa ang Pagasa project of the Calategas Farmers Marketing Cooperative (CFMC), much- needed assistance was extended to Damsite Child Development Center in Calategas, Narra, Palawan.
In late 2018, child development worker Corazon Magbanua expressed the need for repairs to the daycare center. CFMC through its president, Danny Cabiguen, volunteered to carry out the labor component as a way for them to spread the hope and joy they experienced after receiving a post-harvest facility as part of their partnership with Bantay Kalikasan.
Magbanua shared her joy and gratitude for the support that their daycare center has received. She reported that the donation was used to procure a TV set for enrichment learning, two wall fans, 10 gallons of paint, 10 bags of cement and 30 meters of floormats. CFMC provided labor as well as the additional fine sand used for the construction.
