Helping Butuan

by MikeF74 Online Now Mar 25, 2013 at 1:15 PM

I am planning my second trip to Butuan in June. I have friends in Alviola Village where I will be staying. If possible, I plan to stay there for a long time. I want to get involved with your community by volunteering, so to help the beautiful people of Butuan. How can I help you?

    Best to get in touch with other foreign expats in Butuan first and if my memory is correct there's about 35+ living there. Also a word to the wise for people relocating from wealthier countries to poorer developing aka third world countries take it slow especially when it comes to "helping" others financially. Wait til you've been there for 6 months to a year and the incredible exuberance you are feeling wears off a bit. Then by all means get involved in local life.

    I am also going to Butuan on June to visit my relatives. A lot of poor kids there not having school supplies and enough clothes. When my mom visits Butuan she sees to it that she brings clothes to the children.
