Basic agricultural needs, namely, seed and fertilizer, for three selected Scout families was also purchased by the project.

To benefit more families, the same budget for this activity also purchased a total of 50 piglets and 45 goats, benefitting another 62 families. Jomel Calumpiano is one the families that benefited from this project. He says:

Time are definitely tough and going got rough, especially with my finances. My family needed help and you never failed us and deprived us of the support we need. It’s not easy to find assistance. Thank you for the opportunity to be a recipient of a female goat. I will take care of it and let it grow to produce more goats and sell it so I will have money to support our financial needs with my family.

Thank you WSB-APR and Leyte Council. We will never forget the goodness of your heart. May you be blessed with all the graces you so deserve. Thank you!
