Brightest Christmas

"Ito na ang pinakamagandang pamasko sa amin. Salamat sa KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP at sa pagtutulungan ng mga taga-Himokilan. Kaya pala namin ang pagbabago. Natupad na rin ang pangarap naming mag-asawa na magka-ilaw ang aming bahay. Ngayong taon ang pinakamaliwanag na Pasko namin! Sakto dalawang araw bago ang pasko, nakabitan na kami ng solar panels. Ito na ang pinakamasayang pasko namin dahil sa magandang Christmas gift na ito. Maliwanag na ang Pasko at Bagong Taon namin dito sa isla" ---- Racquel Peras, Community Volunteer, Treasurer, Brgy. Himokilan, Hindang, Leyte
Alona Alberio's Christmas this 2014 was different from the previous Christmas celebration she had. In her 36 years, Christmas in the island barangay of Himokilan, Hindang, Leyte was literally dark since there was no source of electricity in their community. But through KALAHI CIDSS-NCDDP's Solar Powered Electrification System which costs 1.9 M, 144 households celebrated their Christmas and New Year with high hopes and Christmas lights on. ###
