Donation

The Ortigas Foundation donated books for the use of inmates at the Iwahig Penal Colony in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. All books can now be accessed at the colony's library.

An estimated  1,200  assorted books were donated including boxes of books donated by Ms. Verna M. Alih of Dumaguete City,  Mr. Jaime Ortigas, and Mr. Lon Ortigas.

The OFI team has taken into consideration to find more skills-oriented books such as carpentry, motor repair, and writing manuals which the inmated need to further increase their knowledge and capacity to earn.
