28 elementary, high school, and college students from "Little Kibungan" may not be able to continue their studies this year. They are among the hundreds of residents who lost their loved ones or homes and now live in tents after being temporarily housed at the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) building in Wangal, La Trinidad, Benguet. Should you wish to help these kids , please get in touch with the President of Benguet State University, or the Chancellor of UP Baguio through Professor Faye Abalos (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Thanks to Rotary International, several families displaced by the "Little Kibungan" landslide are temporarily housed in white "shelter boxes" set up at the Veterans Federation of the Philippines (VFP) headquarters in La Trinidad, Benguet. Hopefully, these victims of typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng will soon find permanent resettlement areas where they can have access to suitable livelihood sources.
