“Through the spirit of giving, we are able to bring hope and happiness to the IP community of the Mamanoa Tribe despite the calamity they have been through; and my deepest gratitude to the private individuals, family members, and club members who voluntarily contributed to make this activity possible may you be rewarded with blessings, may this simple act mean something to them and inspire them to keep going and persevering. ‘There’s always a rainbow after the rain,'” said Lt. Col. Ricky Canatoy, 58th IB commanding officer. (58th IB | PIA Misamis Oriental)
