Rehab Project in Our Lady of Candles Parish, Hinobaan, Negros Occidental

The convent in the Our Lady of Candles Parish, Hinobaan, Negros Occidental was already dilapidated years ago. Fundraising for its renovation was a challenge since the majority of the parishioners were low-income farmers and fishers.




When Typhoon Odette struck, the convent sustained further damage, and even the Bishop of Kabankalan said it would be more cost-efficient to build a new convent than to try repairing the old one. A new convent would cost P4.8-M, according to plans drafted by a local architect/engineer.

Tanging Yaman Foundation committed to donate P2-M for a new convent. Groundbreaking ceremonies last July 8 were attended by the Parish Pastoral Council, Finance Council, and Kristianong Katilingban. The Parish is still hoping to raise more donations. AM+DG
