Successful fundraising concert

We would like to thank Sa’less Diner and Moozika, Hoint, Lifelinez, Free Humanity, Spaced Out and all the people who supported for the successful dub/reggae night last December 1, 2012. Although some of the bands and the people we’ve invited didn’t show up, and the show started late (at around 10pm), and we experienced a short black out, it went out good and ended at around 2am. We raised an amount of 800Php for Vicente’s artificial leg installation and we are very thankful for this, hoping to have another fundraising show in January! We also met different people who appreciated our fundraising effort and offered us help in the future. Again, we would like to say “Salamat” to all who donated and appreciate event like this. We are very hopeful that together with you, ideas like Balay Tabang will flourish and help many people in the coming days.

What is House of Helps (BALAY TABANG)

house of helps

A platform and expression of our All being One to be used for spiritual encouragement and counseling, a meeting place to network with other people who have a desire to Love and give of themselves to their neighbor in practical ways and to restore a remembrance of our common unity with everyone and helping to meet the needs we see around us. This is a place for connecting others who have expressed their need, with those who are inspired to give help to their brother and sister. To give and to receive is one Truth. We are promoting the sharing of our Life with each other, though you can only give to yourself. We are all One. We have a place for meeting, for encouragement, sharing music, street feedings for the homeless, a library with scheduled seminars/workshops. Eventually, we want to offer a free clothes closet, a shower, C.R., and laundry. 

Thanks for sharing this Vision!

Balay Tabang

Isang samahan na sadyang binuo para mag ugnay sa mga tao na may pagmamahal at pagmamalasakit sa mga nangangailangan ng tulong na nakikita natin sa ating paligid. Sa praktikal na pamamaraan, ito ay tumutulong sa abot ng makakaya; ito ay nagluluto ng pagkain para sa mga homeless, gumagawa ng mga makabuluhang mga bagay tulad ng musika at sining, nagbibigay ng libreng workshops, diskusyon, at film viewings upang makabuo ng alternatibo at positibong komunidad na gumagawa ng mga solusyon sa mga problemang may kinalaman sa ating mental, pisikal at ispiritwal na aspeto. Ito rin ay nagsisilbing community library na kung saan libreng makahiram ng libro ang mga tao. Sa pamamagitan ng mga simpleng ideya at pagkilos, ito ay nagpo-promote ng pagmamahal, pagbibigayan, pagdadamayan, at pagkakaisa.

Now, how can we/you help?

Please comment or email us if you are interested to help or be part of the vision.

Fund raising for Vicente

Vicente is a fisherman from Talicud Island who lost his leg due to infection. He would like to get an artificial below knee leg to help him walk, as he uses crutches to walk now and it is difficult getting around on uneven ground. The cost of his artificial leg is 7000Php, which he will be measured for and receive from a prosthetic technician at Davao Doctor’s Hospital named Majie in the Orthopaedic clinic there. This cost includes his travel from Talicud Island to Davao and back from Davao Doctor’s for the measurement and fitting of the left below knee prosthestic leg and shoe. You can contribute what you feel in your heart to give; any amount will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your donation to help Vicente be able to walk better! As soon as the funds are raised, Vicente will travel to Davao and be measured and then fit with the new leg after one week for fabrication time. If you are interested to help, please contact this email: freedalyf@gmail.com - Thank you very much!


Magandang Araw! Kami ay humihingi ng tulong para kay Vicente na isang mangingisda na nakatira sa Talicud Island. Siya ay naputulan ng paa dahil sa impeksyon at nangangailangan ng pinansyal na suporta para magkaroon ng artipisyal na paa upang siya ay makalakad. Ang halaga na kailangan naming maipon ay 7000Php upang siya ay makabayad sa mga materyales. Sa direktang tulong galing sa inyo, magkakaroon ng pagkakataon na makalakad uli ng maayos si Vicente. Malugod naming tatanggapin ano mang halaga ng inyong donasyon.
