Davao Knights to send bulad to Bohol

The Knights of Columbus in Davao City is set to send an initial aid in the form of 1,500 packs of Bangsi bulad to those affected by the earthquake in Bohol.

“This is our respond to the call of Archbishop Romulo Valles to help the people of Bohol,” Knights of Columbus Davao Regional Deputy Jerry Mission said.

Mission said all the Knights in Davao contributed to immediately purchase an estimated 350 kilos of bulad worth P30 to P50 thousand since there is an immediate need to send aid to Bohol.

He said they were advised by Archbishop Valles that five military trucks will travel by land from Davao to Bohol to deliver the various donations and aid to the quake victims. “We will entrust our aid to the Archbishop so bahala na sila kung paano ang distribution doon,” he added.

This is only an initial aid, he said, since all councils of the Knights of Columbus in Mindanao have been requested to turn over their cash donation by October 28, 2013.

“We hope this will encourage other individuals and groups to join the move to help the earthquake victims,” he said.

Knights of Columbus Samal District Deputy Boy Sarmiento said they were informed that “sobra na ang canned goods, noodles and rice donations to Bohol so we decided to give bulad instead.”

When informed about the reputation of the Visayas provinces as some of the best sources of bulad, Sarmiento said “for sure hurot na ang bulad didto karon so this is ideal for them since pwede sya isubak, isugba ug dili basta madaot.”
