by Wabilyn M. Lomong–oy

CARAVAN FOR-A-CAUSE -- The Kataguan caravan-for-a-cause has raised close to P340,000 cash and pledges that will benefit a group of kidney patients’ in Mountain Province.

The Kataguan caravan for-a-cause that toured different tourist sites in Mountain Province on April 6 has raised P338,000 in cash and pledges.

A total of P234,250 was turned over by the Office of Mountain Province Rep. Maximo Dalog to the Kataguan Dialysis Patients of Mountain Province Inc. during a program after the caravan stopped in Sagada.

The other amounts were collected by members of the patients’ group.

The caravan for-a-cause is part of the activities of the 50th Mountain Province Foundation Day and 13th Lang-ay Festival.

The caravan started in 2014 as a partnership program of Dalog with Mountain Province patients undergoing hemodialysis in the province and Baguio City. It was then that the patients took the initiative to organize themselves as a group and later named it Kataguan Dialysis Patients of Mountain Province, Inc.

Their membership increased from less than 50 in 2014 to 102 this year.

The caravan kicked off at the All Saints Mission International School compound with a send-off prayer offered by Rev. Liova Achawon for the protection of all the participants and for the success of activity.

Around 70 participants aboard more than 30 vehicles proceeded to Dawdawan in Sabangan going up to Bagnen Oriente. Apart from driving to the designated routes, the caravan also featured some of the tourist destinations of the province like Mount Polis in Bauko where the participants climbed 1,844 meters above sea level to witness the scenic views of Mount Mugao of Tadian, the Rice Terraces of Sagada, the Sleeping Beauty of Tinglayan, Kalinga and the mountains of Benguet.

Dubbed as the “View deck in the sky,” the beautiful mountaintop is located at Barangay Bagnen Oriente in Bauko.

From Bauko, the caravan motored to Taccong, Sagada capturing a view of the Blue Mountain, Kaman Otek and the Marlboro Country and a drive through the already completed Sabangan-Sagada via Taccong Road convergence project and went on towards Sagada via the Balili-Sagada Road, also a completed convergence project.

While on their way to the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin for a short prayer in favor of the dialysis patients, the participants passed through the Balangagan Cave, Marlboro Country, Sumaguing Cave, and the hanging coffins.
