When Hutch asked me to join him on a trip to Bohol for a medical-dental mission, I answered: Count me in! He was part of the K.I.D.S. Foundation, a group of committed volunteers who share a common passion for the great outdoors and for helping Filipino children from all walks of like. Twice a year, K.I.D.S. Foundation holds 'A Trek to Remember' and brings medical missions, school supplies, books and rain gear to chosen remote highlands in the country. This October, the group chose the Eskaya tribe in Sierra Bullones, Bohol and the neighboring town of Dusita.
I answered without hesitation because I've always wanted to volunteer and give back to the community but never made a real effort to do so. In fact, travolunteering is #6 on the Sole Sisters' list. Now I had an opportunity to take one for the team and make it happen. Plus it allowed me to do something I was passionate about (traveling and volunteering) with someone I was passionate about.
I'll let the photos show you what the Travolunteering experience in Bohol was like:
