Meriam Quilang-Galuna Hunter long time best friend and supporter of Bethany finally fulfilled her promise to visit BCHC here in Talakag last month. Meriam has supported Bethany for many years now and has vowed to visit Bethany when next in the Philippines. Never one to break a promise Meriam during her recent visit to Cagayan de Oro to visit her family and friends following the Typhoon Sendong disaster in December 2011 called on Bethany to hand over gifts brought all the way from East Kilbride in Scotland my homeland.

During her visit to Bethany Meriam had the opportunity to meet the children first hand and had it been possible, I’m sure she would have taken them back to Scotland with her. Since returning to Scotland Meriam has informed me that she has been working hard to raise funding for Bethany amongst friends and work colleagues so all we can say is a very big thank you to all in East Kilbride who wish to help us here and your donations will be put to a worthy cause.

Once again thank you Meriam for taking the time to visit us here in Talakag and seeing first-hand the valuable work done by Bethany on behalf of their children.
