The remaining money (Php 32,495.70) was turned over to Simbahang Lingkod ng Bayan to contribute to the Php65,000.00 worth of goods for the families of the farmers back in Bukidnon. This money was sent to Bukidnon last December 19,2007 and will be used by the families for their Noche Buena.

We again thank the whole Loyola Schools community for rising up to the challenge of supporting the Sumilao farmers' campaign for social justice!

The battle is not over yet so we hope that our support will not diminish even as they return to their families and continue the fight from there.

We will continue to update the Loyola Schools Community on this case through email blasts as information is made available to us. Watch out for the information board that will be set-up at the MVP lobby and the Sumilao Weekly email blast to monitor this issue.

Merry Christmas and God bless us all.
