SULOngSULU: Chemistry Lab materials for Boloboc National High School in Tawi Tawi

Earlier this year, we have received a request through friend Khen Kaming, a resident of Bongao, Tawi Tawi for the provision of Chemistry Lab materials for Boloboc National high school.

I have visited this school more than a year back, and surely, they have a room called Laboratory, but back then, it was but dust inside.

Thanks to Patagonian Enterprises in Manila too for extending P794.00 discount to close the purchase at the amount of donations we have.

Last February 25, Mam Weng, Racky, Gilda and other friends are scheduled to fly to Tawi Tawi, and carried the items to turn over to Boloboc National high School. Thanks to Gilda for sponsoring the baggage fees :-).

Also, to our Philippine National Police Special Action Force for granting and ensuring the security of our friends.

Thanks to blogger Ian dela Pena for donating the microscope too.

To Khen for letting me know everytime of any help opportunity and genuine sacrifices and visions for Tawi Tawi.

And, If I may, once again, the TEAM BACKOUT, Mam Weng, Nars Racky, Minie, Cecille and JC who has been the arms of these little PH projects.

Earlier today, I received a message from Mam Weng that she is happy about what she has been involved into lately, and it is pleasing to know that rather than just being bothered by a remote commander in Indonesia, they feel the same happiness and satisfaction that I feel when we are able to do something.


As you may see, the quantity provided are small, and we are looking into providing a second batch of the same quantity to be on a good ratio of materials to student count. Additionally, we are looking into getting them furnished with Physics Lab Materials later, as well as DESKTOPs. If you have spare, regardless of whether used so long as still worthy, please let us know.
