Siruma is a 4th class municipality several hours from Naga. The sleepy, little coastal town is really not that far from Naga, but because the horrible conditions of the roads, it takes about four to five hours to get there. Quite an adventure already just to get there. In a place seemingly forgotten by the rest of the booming region, there lies a treasure that volunteers hope to find from May 24 to 27.
In a campaign to rebuild the villages in Camarines Sur, the GK village in Taligra, Siruma will be the first to be revisited.
Beautifully situated on the top of a little hill, overlooking the sea, about eighteen homes are in need for major repair. Over the years, GK has learned a thing or two regarding the choices of materials used in building the houses. With the frequency of our typhoons, there was clearly a need to improve and repair our older sites. We’ll start here.
Things are slowly falling into place for this build – the LGU seems to be on board, the community ready, and volunteers inquiring how they can be involved. The most heartwarming response though has been from our very own kapitbahayan from the different villages in the province. A large number of men, now skilled workers because of their experience in building their villages, will be joining the build. They will be leaving their families for a few days, to rebuild homes for others.
This is a totally alternative way of spending your summer. It is definitely not your usual trip to the beach. But then again, Spiral Sun is not your usual travel business.
