Iligan City

Filipino Muslim families in Tambacan village, Iligan City receive food packages during Ramadan

Since 2010, the Bayanihan Foundation had consistently supported multiple diaspora philanthropic efforts in Iligan City. These philanthropic donations are the building of six water wells; two latrines; two libraries; and feeding thousands of indigent Filipino Muslims during Ramadan and other Muslim holidays. The Bayanihan Foundation has leveraged funding with the support of local Rotary clubs and the Zakat Foundation. Dr. Vicente and Mrs. Luz Saavedra, Imam Atty. Saidali Gandamra, and many Rotarian leaders and volunteers have contributed to the phenomenal success of continued giving to Iligan. The Bayanihan Foundation also acknowledged the continued generosity of board member Vincent Saavedra for his support to these diaspora philanthropic efforts over the years.

In 2019, the Bayanihan Foundation plans to donate educational supplies to indigent students and replace two water wells. Join and donate to the Bayanihan Foundation for continued long-term impact in Iligan.
