We are grateful for another ANCOP site. This one is set to rise at Barangay West Talaongan, Cavinti, Laguna which was made possible with the kindness of its donors, CFC ANCOP Global Foundation Inc. (CAGFI), ANCOP Canada International, and the Municipality of Cavinti.
On the site will rise an initial 30 house units and will be named CFC ANCOP Canada-Municipality of Cavinti Community. Along with these is a multi-purpose covered court already approved by the Office of the Mayor, which is also planned to serve as an evacuation area to nearby municipalities that are often affected by calamities.
There was also a newly-built health center within the perimeter. Ceremonial groundbreaking rites at the site were held last October 9, with the presence of CAGFI, ANCOP Canada, Local Government Unit of Cavinti, CFC Laguna, as well as the prospect beneficiaries.
The program started with a mass presided by Fr. Uriel Umali, then immediately followed by the blessing of the site. The land was known to be previously owned by Francis Chua and later on donated to Barangay West Talaongan Captain Manny Dela Roca.
The captain expressed his gratefulness to CFC ANCOP as they were used as the Lord’s instrument to be a blessing to his constituents. They are the prospect beneficiaries living alongside the Cavinti National Road who are troubled as a road-widening would happen soon that would greatly affect their homes.
Cavinti Municipality Mayor Milbert Oliveros also expressed his gratefulness that this blessing was brought to their town. He guaranteed that the municipality would give its utmost support to build this
Bro. Eric delos Reyes, CFC Canada Country Coordinator, CFC Laguna Provincial Area Head (PAH)
and a Board Member of CAGFI, together with Laguna Provincial Area Director (PAD) Bro. Boyet
Zotomayor, presented to the prospect beneficiaries the help that they would get from CFC.
They will take-over the Values Formation Program through Christian Life Programs once they were set to be a house partner. Bro. Ricky Cuenca, ANCOP Canada President, also highlighted that the funds to be used for the site would be from their fellow countrymen residing at Canada, then assured them that
they are always there to help even more, especially if they would thoroughly follow the rules and
regulations to be set.
On the other hand, a prospect beneficiary, Sanilyn Balse, expressed her gratitude to the
donors even if the construction hasn’t even started yet. Their troubles of losing their homes beside
the national road were lessened because of this great blessing to their area. Bro. Ricky Cuenca also
assured them that this blessing would be not just about building their homes but also building their
lives through ANCOP’s holistic approach to community development. (CFC ANCOP
