Much of the electricity supply in Bohol comes from Leyte, and the supply is very vulnerable to the impact of natural disasters. When super typhoon Odette struck in December 2021, it took weeks, and in some areas even months to restore electricity. But shortly after, when Tropical Storm Agaton caused significant damage in Southern Leyte in April 2022, Bohol was without electricity again.
Tanging Yaman Foundation donated P360,000 to enable St. Isidore the Farmer Parish in Tubigon, Bohol to acquire a generator set that would power both the church and convent, thus allowing the parish to continue its operations even during the frequent power outages in the monsoon season. In the picture are Fr. Nilo Batausa, Fr. Raindy Alpuerto, Fr. Bing Hussain, and technicians who helped install the gen set on the parish grounds. AM+DG
