Kinatarcan Sustainable Integrated Area Development (KSIAD)

Since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special attention to those who,
by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances, are brought into closer connection with you.

-- St. Augustine

You give bread to the hungry person, but it would be better were no one hungry,
and you could give it to no one. You clothe the naked person. Would that all were clothed and this necessity did not exist.

-- Saint Augustine, Tractate 1 John 8.8

What does love look like?
It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.

-- St. Augustine

Kinatarcan Sustainable Integrated Area Development (KSIAD)

The Augustinians are currently doing missionary works in Kinatarcan island since 2008. The island is under the jurisdiction of the municipality of Sta. Fe, Cebu and is composed of three barangays: Hagdan, Bitoon and Langub. Kintarcan was one of the many islands devastated by super typhoon Haiyan last November 8, 2013.

Personally chosen as a loving project by Ms. Gina Lopez through the funds from ABS-CSB Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc., KSIAD is implemented alongside with Southern Partners for Fair Trade Center, Inc. (SPFTC), a Cebu-based development NGO. As a community-managed undertaking, this project is a living testimony that community development is possible as long as people with hearts of gold will join their forces for one common cause. Thanks to the generosity and loving efforts offered by the local government unit of the Municipality of Sta. Fe, Cebu and other government agencies (DOT, DOST, TESDA, PDRRMO), and the pool of volunteers from the United Architects-Metro Cebu Chapter and other volunteer engineers!
