For the third time the administrator of www.biliranisland.com has once again share his blessing to our least fortunate brothers and sisters….and for the first time it has collaborated with Noel Pla the project coordinator of ADOPT a Child Trust Fund (ACTF). The beneficiaries of the bundles of joy were the organized elementary pupils of Buyo, Bilwang, Masagaosao, and Burabod Elemenatry School respectively, located at the Municipality of Kawayan northern part of Biliran Province. These schools were the beneficiaries of ACTF.
