Pictures taken during our surprise visit. Eddie and I introduced ourselves and they were very happy to see us. They showed us the different sections of the library but for some reason, we only took pictures of the children's section. I guess because they were nicely displayed.
January 11-12, 2008 - Naujan Flood Relief Operation
Several barangays of Naujan suffered back to back devastating floods towards the end of 2007 and the start of 2008 resulting in damaged crops, ruined houses and school buildings, and untold sufferings of residents. OMASC responded by distributing 2000 food packages to 10 affected barangays. The distribution was personally managed by Mrs. Linda Macalintal, OMASC Philippine Liaison, in coordination with Mayor Romar Marcos and Mrs. Edna Llamoso, Municipal Social Worker. The pictures in this album show some of the highlights during the 2-day relief operation.

Flood Relief Operation in 2007
Omasc worked very hard to raise money to help flood victims in Calapan and neigboring towns. 3 major flooding occurred in Dec. 2006. Eleanor Evangelista, current president and husband Ed Evangelista went home to manage the distribution. She was assisted by Erlinda Macalital. The sisters in Salong were very nice to let us use the convent for packing. On hand were members of OMHS class 56 who helped in packing and distibution. Gov. Panaligan let us use their trucks and drivers for distribution. Ester de Guzman and her 2 sons Marion de Guzman and Marvin de Guzman also worked very hard to help us distribute the food. This is when I learned that Linda Macalintal was such a skilled driver. She drove her car to remote areas where streets are extremely narrow.
