Our 4×4 got stuck in the river twice, blew out a tire and went through intense heat but we were able to distribute solar lamps to 100 families in San Felipe, Zambales. The team also spent time learning about Aeta culture and sharing in a meal that the villagers had prepared for them.
It was especially dramatic during our dusk distribution, when the Aetas opened their lamps in the dark and, for the first time, the night was as bright as the smiles on their faces.
Thank you 1 Million Lights for empowering the Aetas of San Felipe and shining hope in places that need it.
