VICTIMS RECEIVE DONATIONS
Two good Samaritans based in Metro-Manila took pity of the plight of the
family of Mr. & Mrs. Erneo Fuellas of Barangay Lalud, Bulusan, whose shanty
was totally burned down on the midnight of February 27, 2004 leaving them
penniless and with only their clothes on.
Damayan-Buluseño, Inc., the family received P1,000.00 cash and two cartons of
clothes and shoes. The cash
donation came from Mr. Francisco Fernandez, Jr. while the clothes and shoes were
donated by Ms. Teresa Galindes.
The two are both
very supportive of the association’s cause. On several occasions, Mr.
Fernandez, a businessman from Mandaluyong City, has donated various foodstuffs
to the association’s Christmas Drive. He
has also extended assistance to distressed Buluseños referred to him by the DBI.
Although not a
full-blooded Buluseña, Ms. Galindes cared so much for Bulusan and the Buluseños.
In fact, for the past several years, she has been the consistent biggest donor
of various medicines to the association’s yearly civic action.
She is the eldest daughter of the late Vicente Galindes, former US
Navyman from Barangay Sapngan who died in a road accident in the US many years
Tessa, as she is
fondly called by relatives and friends, stayed for a year in Bulusan when she
was still very young. After the
death of her father, he practically grew up in Mindanao, the place of her late
mother. It was only after she
graduated in college when she came back to Bulusan which she since then
considered her second home.
She is a
businesswoman based in Caloocan City where she operates two drugstores.
