City Mayor Vicente “Dongkoy” Y. Emano expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the more than 6,000 vounteers who showed up in last first of May’s ‘One CdeO, Build CdeO’ drive of the Habitat for Humanity and the City Government of Cagayan de Oro.
Due to the united efforts of both private and public sectors, Cagayan de Oro has quickly risen back to its feet after what it has gone through. This last gathering showed how Cagayanons rise up to any call in the spirit of volunteerism.
It is hoped that the gathering will garner a place in the pages of the Guinness Book of World Records for the most number of volunteers assembled in three hours to help build houses in the Pagatpat Relocation Site.
