A DAY WITH THE ALANGAN MANGYAN TRIBE OF MINDORO [An Outreach Activity for the Mangyan Tribe]



Just before summer bade its final days, we joined LAKBAY KINABUKASAN at BACO, MINDORO on May 23, a Brigada Eskwela and Medical Mission Project. It was a concerted effort of groups from different walks of life who came all the way from Manila to reach out one of the Mangyan tribes in Mindoro.

We did several pre-school activities in the past and we want, as much as possible, for our children to be involved.  Among the projects I've blogged was the visit to the Mangyan Tribe of Talipanan and the Palansa Elementary School.

For this year’s project, a medical mission (free check-up, medicines and vitamins) and Brigada Eskwela project was given to the Alangan community of San Ignacio Banilad.  The Sitio is located at the foot of Mt. Halcon and an hour away from Calapan proper.

While the doctors and nurses performed the medical activity, the other volunteers painted the classrooms.  Then after, school supplies, books, electric fan, TV and DVD set, slippers and lunch kits where given to the volunteer teacher and students of San Lorenzo Ruiz Learning Center.

In return, the children offered their thanksgiving hymn and a ritual was performed to drive away the bad elements and for everyone's safe journey.

 "Kaming mga manyan, may sariling pamumuhay
Lagi nanalangin sa kanunu-nunuan
Ito’y kayaman na di mapantayan
Pagkat Diyos ang lumikha, syang pinagmulan

Buhay namin sa bundok ay may kahirapan
Masaya pa rin dahil may bigayan
Sa amin ang lahat pawang kahihiyan
Pagkat sa puso namin likas ang kabutihan"
