TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Last June 19, 2022, the Kalinga Ullalim Eagles Chapter held an outreach event to help a family man realize his dream of building a home for his family.
The recipients of the group’s charity activities are chosen by the members themselves, according to Maj. Robert Dumallay of the Highway Patrol Group (HPG)- Kalinga, who is also the chapter’s president.
The chapter unanimously decided to offer construction materials to Jordan Agayong, a father of three, from Sitio Kasabang, Barangay Nambucayan, to help him finish the construction of his home. Chapter members also helped out in the construction of Agayong’s house.
According to Dumallay, the funds for the procurement of construction supplies, such as hollow blocks, bags of cement, steel bars, loads of gravel and sand, and sliding window parts, as well as cash, came from donations from potential members themselves.
Agayong expressed his gratitude to the Kalinga Ullalim Eagles Chapter for being chosen as the project’s recipient in an interview.
Agayong, a former security guard in Manila, was overjoyed at the unexpected help because he was running out of money to finish his home after losing his work due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
He stated that the materials were handed to him in order to expedite the completion of his family’s home. He explained that the income he earns from subsistence farming is insufficient to purchase the materials he requires to complete his home.
Since its founding in 2018, the Kalinga Ullalim Eagles Chapter, one of four organizations that make up The Fraternal Order of Eagle, Philippine Eagle in Kalinga, has provided solar lights, school materials, and food to other towns, families, and schools in Tabuk and Tanudan.
The outreach program falls on Father’s Day, and the organization’s major mission is to help individuals in need one goal at a time.
