Flashback Friday sa Bangka-sion on June 20

Wazzup Pilipinas!

After the super typhoon Yolanda hit Philippine waters last November 2013. A lot of our country men lent a hand to help those who have been damaged severely by the storms. Most relief effort focused in Tacloban since it was the worst hit area. But there are areas where in relief wasn’t able to reach. This includes Coron, Palawan.

The situation of Tabang Tambayan's adopted community in Coron is depressing. The basic needs of the community are only given to them through various fund raising events.

The focus for this June is their livelihood. Most men from Sitio Maricaban are fisher mongers but since the storm destroyed their boats, their livelihood was put into halt. Tabang Tambayan aims to build at least 20 fishing boats for the community’s perusal, through the funds raised through a reunion and meet.

Tabang Tambayan prepared two events for the month of June first of which includes the Bangka-sion on the 20th of June at B-Side, Collective. Come join in this once in a lifetime event! Meet new friends and catch up with old ones!

Bangka-sion is the first fellowship night of the dragon boat teams. It is the first occasion where in the teams won’t compete but rather mingle and finally get to see and know the people they are competing with. This occasion will be both a reunion for them and a meet for those who would want to have a glimpse of the people behind the paddles. The first where-in the teams can relax and enjoy music by bands such as Lantern Syrup, Giallo, Siglo, Parallax, Nich and More.

We hope to see you  and be part of our movement.

What is Tabang Tambayan?

Tabang is a Visayan word that means tulong in Tagalog and help in English. Tambayan is a Tagalog word, translated in english as a comfi (comfortable) place.

Tabang Tambayan is a project by The Silver Lining Project, Primarch Entertainment, SparkMyIdeas, individual organizers, Kamilla Sumagui, Bryan Favorito, Jansie Hernandez and Kris Garcia, and several volunteers. It is a series of events, whether gigs or workshops, aimed to bring together artists and artisans from the creative and music industries to pool together their talents as a means of providing assistance to our Yolanda survivors.

Together with beneficiaries, the Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary-401 Squadron, PCGA-Coron and AirJuan, the fundraising drive is for the Relief-Rehab-Rebuild of the project's adopted community and barangay, Sitio Maricaban in Coron, Palawan.
