The Commission on Filipinos Overseas (CFO) which earlier partnered with RISE and partner communities MKKs (Magagmay nga Kristianong Katilingban) in repairing and building six public school classrooms in the municipalities of Barotac Viejo, Lemery and San Dionisio, brought Mr. Titon Mitra, the Country Director (CD) of United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and his colleague, Atty. Golda Roma to Lemery, Iloilo last June 11, 2015 in the afternoon. We are overwhelmed and inspired by the effort of CD Mitra as he sought to meet directly our partner communities, now transformed into MKK Consumers Cooperative, despite the long travel from Iloilo City and a plane to catch later back to Manila. In behalf of the local government, Vice-Mayor Cecilia Lumampao warmly welcomed them.
