Employees of M Lhuillier Philippines went to Bohol last Dec. 22 some two months after the 7.2-magnitude earthquake hit the province last Oct. 15.

The group led by executive vice president Michael Lhuillier visited the schools in Sagbayan, Loon and Maribojoc towns.

They distributed bags and school supplies to the 600 pupils from Canmano Elementary School (ES) in Sagbayan, Maribojoc ES and Loon ES. The schools also received tarpaulins to shelter the children from the elements when holding classes.


The group also distributed relief packs and tarpaulins for roofing material to almost 600 families.

Vivian Samputon, principal of Canmano Elementary School, said “It takes a community to educate a child,” referring to the support extended by the jewelry firm.
