THE STORY:

FOR THE COASTAL TOWNS OF CEBU

Super Typhoon Haiyan affected lives of many families that rely heavily on fishing as a livelihood. The towns of San Remigio, Bantayan, Madridejos and Santa Fe, Cebu, Philippines are areas where families are in need of boats. These places are hard to reach areas and the most affected by the typhoon. When the relief operations have finished, they need to be self sufficient. They must fish again!(See picture of the towns most affected by Haiyan. (Yolanda is the local name of Haiyan) Donations for this project will be directed towards areas #1, #2, #3 and #15.)

VSO Bahaginan (Volunteer Services Overseas) launched the Project GiveABanca that aims on raising funds to give 330 boats to 330 families in Northern Cebu, especially PWDs (Persons with Disabilities) One banca (boat) costs 15,000 pesos (approx. $375). This will go a long way to help the families get back up. 

THE PLAN

I will bike to the Northern tip of Luzon (Pagupud) from Manila's kilometer zero. This will cover 570 kilometers (approx. 354 miles). Expenses that I will incur along this trip will be personal and I will not use any amount I've received from this funding. 

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Step 1: Pledge to Donate any amount for every kilometer we bike. (example: 1php x 570km = 570php; 3php x 570km = 1,710php)
