IVCF Phil and the Ormoc City Baptist Church conduct livelihood training for 'Yolanda' victims in Ormoc by: Elvie Roman Roa

ORMOC CITY, Feb. 14 (PNA) --The Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) of the Philippines in partnership with Ptr. Rockcliff Jorolan of the Ormoc City Baptist Church, provided free livelihood training for the first time to super typhoon “Yolanda” victims in the city of Ormoc to help them go back to normal life. Approximately 100 participants attended Thursday's half-day training for upholstery making, commercial cooking, therapeutic massage and dishwashing/fabric conditioner making with no discrimination of belief. IVCF also gave hygiene kits and stuffed toys to kids with the belief that such would somewhat help debrief children from the catastrophe. Pastor Ferdinand Juni, National Director of IVCF Philippines and Pastor Ferdinand Marano, IVCF Regional Director of their Bicol Regional Unit, led the volunteers from Manila, Bacolod and Legaspi cities in providing the livelihood training. The participants believed that the training was timely since they are jobless and finding it difficult to find a job at this time. Most of them resort to alternative livelihood. IVCF Phil is a campus ministry formed 60 years ago and now has 116 college and 54 high school chapters in different schools nationwide. The livelihood training is part of IVCF Phil’s Operation AHON – the disaster management arm of the ministry and was made possible by the generous partnership of IVCF alumni and friends – Balikatan USA and Canada, MEANS Connect, Club4Thee, Loving Hugs Inc., and concerned individuals and churches both here and abroad.
