Dress Distribution #65 - For the children of Eastern Samar Phils (c-o Guiuan Development Foundation)

Some of the dresses on these parcels have been saved for months until such time that the recipient in Eastern Samar Phils is ready to make a distribution to the community whose members were victims of the devastating Typhoon Haiyan. Dress Distribution #65 is a 3-parcel of 207 dresses(9 matching sets), 10 boys and girls shirts, 31 shorts, 4 mens hats, 72 girls(37x) and boys(35x) undies and 17 men's tshirts and will be sent to Professor Margarita dela Cruz who is the founder and head of the Guiuan Development Foundation. This foundation is a non-profit NGO based in Eastern Samar, well known for it's Coastal Based Resource Management Programs and other Marine and Environmental preservation activities. This is the same foundation that was the recipient of a very small amount of money I raised from family and friends right after the typhoon happened and was used to purchase fishing nets for a few fisherfolk of the community of Guiuan in order to help them slowly rebuild their lives. If I have the money I probably would buy a few bancas to give to them for their fishing activities. A 'banca' is a very small boat they can ride when fishing in the open sea. (Click on the word 'banca' if you want to see how it looks like.)

Also included on these parcels were 72 pieces of boys(35x) and girls(37x) undies from several donors which I find difficult to identify anymore as they have been mixed. The hats and the men's t-shirts will most likely be given to a few fishermen. Perhaps they can use it when they go fishing.
