Balilihan rural community visit

We’ve recently hosted a group of nursing students from Georgia College and State University who visited Bohol as part of their study abroad program. Partnering with the Nursing department of Holy Name University, they spent time in some towns of Bohol learning about the Filipino culture and observing how Filipino mothers care for their children.

Their professor, Flor Bondal, who is originally from Bohol, took them to our Anda homestays for them to have a first-hand experience of a local family life.

They’ve also spent time at our Balilihan Community stay where they danced the “tinikling”, had a Filipino lunch, rode the “kalesa”, and plowed using a carabao (water buffalo)!

The students expressed their thanks to the host community with special mention of the lunch served. They specifically liked the “humbang nangka” (young jackfruit stew with coconut milk). Josh, one of the students, also acknowledged the barangay’s health monitoring.
