UPDATE: Thank you for your gifts. The repairs to the OBC administration block have been completed.
One of our ministry partners in the Philippines is ORO BIBLE COLLEGE – a tertiary College in Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao which is accredited by the Philippines education system, which offers studies and degrees in theological and secular subjects.
During the extensive flooding of the city during Typhoon Washi in December 2011, the College buildings were extensively damaged by the inundation and subsequently have been badly affected by the infestation of termites directly attributable to the flooding. Offices on the ground floor, books, records, cabinets, walls, floors, stairways in the main administration building have been badly damaged as have some parts of the faculty apartment block.
Two spray treatments for the termites have been carried out and the third and final treatment is planned for April 2013. Once this final treatment is carried out, repairs to main beams and walls and linings in the offices and to some walls in the apartment building will be necessary to bring the buildings back to useable condition.
Staff at the College have advised that the cost of the minimum amount of repairs will be approximately 20,000 pesos – approximately NZ$600 – we would like to help them fund these repairs to enable the College to concentrate of teaching and training young Filipinos.
