Karen with her husband DJ and their two sons David and Lucas flew to Siargao on March 28 to enjoy the vibe of the island.

In the viral post on Friday, Davila was shocked on safety issues surfing in Siargao after her son David had an accident.

The journalist said her son came bloodied, with his rash guard ripped apart just half an hour of surfing with trainor Jocol Valerio, who suddenly dissappeared after showing her husband the sari sari store where to buy the Betadine, cotton and gauze.

"I have to say, I was in a moment of suspended disbelief. My husband immediately attended to my son, as they searched for a life guard, a medic or a small first aid station in Boardwalk Cloud 9 [ surfing site in General Luna, Siargao ]," Davila wrote.

"My son’s whole chest, was bleeding from crisscrossing abrasions with a deeper gash under the right rib, clearly from hitting the rocks on the shallow waters, his chin bruised and covered with blood, his right hand in cuts like that from a small knife," the veteran journalist added.

Beforehand, Davila specifically intructed Jocol, recruited by seasoned surfing instructor Junrey Taoy, to give special attention to David as he has challenges in coordination - being in the autism spectrum. Meanwhile, her younger son Lucas was assisted by Taoy.

Resort owners Dingdong and Mildred Pabillore came with a van and offered to bring them to the nearest hospital.

"At the municipal hospital in Dapa, there were no tetanus vaccines available. Mildred had to ask Junrey, Lucas’ trainer to take his motorcycle and buy Tetanus Toxoid & Tetanus Immunoglobin Vaccines, antibiotics and painkillers prescribed by the doctor. While there was a doctor and a nurse on duty, very helpful and attentive - there were no medicines. Foreigners were at the ER with us and I wondered, how do they attend to so many foreigners visiting the island with this set up?," Davila wrote.

Isla Cabana to Dapa

On the following day, Davila raised alarm bells over the set up in Cloud 9 to General Luna Mayor Jaime Rusillon. Among the major points for concern according to her are the following:

1. Anybody who surfs in Siargao can train in Siargao. Some of the trainers are habal habal drivers, who train on the side for extra income. The instructors have no professional certifications. No requirement to be certified. No system of vetting trainers. Anybody with a surf board, who wants to earn P500 an hour can train.

2. There are NO LIFE GUARDS on the beach. NOT ONE. The rising mecca of surfing, with hundreds in the water - and NOT ONE life guard to save tourists from possible drowning or injury.

3. There is NO FIRST AID CLINIC or trained medical personnel at the beach. Sari-sari stores sell Betadine, alcohol, cotton, gauze, tape - proof that injuries are quite common, with supply meeting demand. Problem is, they are able to sell the first aid meds but essentially don’t know who to assist you. In other words, “bahala ka na sa buhay mo”.

4. The attitude of some instructors on Cloud 9 is, “ay nasugatan”.... and stare at you like it’s absolutely natural. No panic, no rush, just local chit chat like it happens all the time, and it’s not that big a deal. Safety clearly isn’t top priority.

However, Rusillon gave several reasons why there were no clinic, nurse or lifeguard in the surfing site. “Karen, we're a 5th class municipality and we lack doctors, and we are not ready for the influx of tourists, we were shocked.”

Mayor Rusillon added, “Karen let me invite you to the Surfing competition this September, ayun, maraming nurse and life guard na ron, kompleto”

Davila was again shocked hearing the arguments from the mayor. She said, P1.2 billion was allocated for Siargao to improve infrastructure to boost tourism. She also recommended: "why not ask the resorts to chip in if you really don’t have the budget? With over 100 resorts in Siargao, imagine at P500 a month per resort, that’s P50,000 for a full time first aid clinic!"

Davila also called the attention of Siargao Island Surfers Association, Siargao Tourism Operators Association and Department of Tourism to act on the issue.

While her first visit to the island was traumatic but said she remain grateful. "My son is safe, others may not have been so lucky. Thank you to all the doctors, nurses and people who helped us along the way."

The viral post has amassed over 10,000 shares and 14,000 reactions as of press time.

LIST OF PASSERS: OWWA Scholarship Exam Results for AY 2018-2019



MANILA, Philippines - (Updated April 28) The Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA)'s Education for Development Scholarship Program (EDSP) and Congressional Migrant Workers Scholarship Program (CMWSP) exam results for academic year AY 2018-2019 are officially released online on Friday, April 20, 2018. View on this page for the list of qualifiers (passers) and topnotchers.

LIST OF PASSERS: OWWA Scholarship Exam Results for AY 2018-2019

Of the 3,249 children of OWWA members who vied for the DOST-SEI Undergraduate Scholarship Examination conducted on October 15, 2017 in 17 regions and in Alkhobar and Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, only 13.85% made it to the top 400 slots enlisted for the EDSP and 50 slots for the CMWSP.

The EDSP is a scholarship grant offered to qualified beneficiaries or dependents of active OWWA members who intend to enroll in a 4-5 year baccalaureate course in any preferred colleges or universities. It shall be in the form of financial assistance amounting to a maximum of P 60,000.00 per school year.

EDSP is being offered to incoming freshmen and those already enrolled in college who have met the age and academic requirements.

At least 1,000 EDSP slots are now up for grabs after OWWA amended its provision earlier this year to increase the number of its beneficiaries from 200 in 2016. (UPDATE: OWWA named the Top 400 qualifiers for EDSP.)

Meanwhile, the Congressional Migrant Workers Scholarship Program (CMWSP) is extended to deserving migrant workers and or their immediate descendants who intend to pursue 4 or 5 year courses in the priority fields in Science and Technology. Educational assistance is P 60,000.00/year funds from the PCSO.

The grateful daughter went on to share the sacrifices her father had done to provide for them. She said, “Pasan dito, pasan doon, yan ang araw-araw na ginagawa ng aking butihing Ama.”

Akoy described their family’s hardships and how her parents served as her motivation in life. She said, “Lahat ng hirap na pinagdaanan ng mga magulang ko ang syang nagsilbing inspirasyon ko para pagbutihin ko ang aking pag-aral.”

In the lengthy post, Akoy shared how they lived in the “squatters” area for 10 years, survived a house fire, burdened with sickness and many other tragedies in life. What held them together was their parents and her dream of finishing college.

The dutiful student did almost everything to help her parents get her through school. Akoy said, “Nagtututor ako, gumagawa ng mga project ng mga tamad na estudyante, nagpapack ng chicharon sa aming kapit bahay at minsan ding naging working student ng sa ganon may pangbaon at pambayad ako sa mga babayarin ko sa paaralan.”

Akoy father too tried to do his part to help his daughter achieve her dreams. She described her father, “Kapalit ng madaling pagpapahiram sa kanya ay ang bawat buhat ng sako ng simento mapunan nya lang ang perang kanyang nahiram.”

In the end, Akoy didn’t fall short in thanking her parents for all their sacrifices. She posted her graduation photo and reminded everyone to strive hard in achieving your dreams and to never be ashamed of your parents.

The post went viral with over 79,000 shares since posting.


The Grateful Graduate

The post was flooded with words of encouragement and congratulations to the new graduate.
