This page is special to us.

It links to every blog post during the pandemic as we worked to help the indigenous Ati tribe in mainland Malay, on Panay Island in the Philippines.

Ati projects for Kurong Village

We met our Ati friends by chance, luck, fate — whatever you want to call it — at the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis.

When we learned they had a village without water and electricity, but the tribe wanted those things, we decided to help. The Chief most wanted easier access to drinking water for his marginalized tribe.

We did that, and much more.

Where did we get all this money to help these people? Our unused travel money and generous overseas donors.

Here are some photos of our work with the Ati.

We are forever changed.

Here are all blog posts we’ve written involving our Ati friends.

It starts at the beginning.
