A tribute to the victims and responders to the tragedy in Boloc-boloc, Sibulan.

Our eternal gratitude to the volunteers from the City of Dumaguete, Province of Negros Oriental and Municipality of Valencia, who risked their lives to retrieve the remains of the dead treasurer hunters so they could be given decent burials by their loved ones.

Sadly, we may have lost some lives in the search for hidden treasures, but it is also reassuring that in time of crisis and tragedy we have people willing to walk an extra mile and make sacrifices to alleviate the loss.

That in itself is treasure enough we ought to cherish and inspire us to be of service to others.
