Stories from Lanit, Iloilo: Rouella Valencia

Rouella Valencia is one of the Ati beneficiaries in iloilo who grew up in difficult living conditions because of homelessness. Many of the Ati children used to wander the streets begging, and would have to wake up at odd hours to collect water for basic needs or prepare for school. Base Bahay Foundation partnered with the Ati Tribes Mission, JCI, and HPFPI to provide housing for 24 homeless Ati families, including Rouella’s.
