The PLS is particularly aware of the need for adequate local infrastructure, and our projects aim to assist the wider community, where necessary creating the appropriate infrastructure in schools or villages.

PLS has also funded the reconstruction of a new roof for the Aklan Hospital in Caticlan. With PLS’s financial aid, members of the PLS Committee inaugurated the newly constructed building of a Day Care School in Antique. Many school toilets and libraries were built and computers were also donated to a school in the Northern part of the Philippines. PLS gave a donation to the Special Education (SPED)programs to help children with educational disabilities.

On several occasions, the PLS has also organized emergency humanitarian support in the wake of natural disasters to local communities in need.
