Photo Gallery: Groundbreaking Ceremony for Salcedo Footbridge


Jul 11


Photos of the Groundbreaking Ceremony in Salcedo, Ilocos Sur for the reconstruction of the footbridge destroyed by Typhoon Parma in 2009. This bridge will help school children go to school even during the rainy season. The water level in the river usually rises during heavy rains, preventing children from crossing the river on foot, and thereby disrupting their schooling. This is a joint project between the Municipality of Salcedo, CDRC and ICRED, and through the generous support of Caritas Switzerland and Swiss Solidarity.
