The frequency of fires in Brgy. Addition Hills, Mandaluyong City urged a group of friends to organize themselves for the community they grew up in. Inspired by the well-known Katipunan Chapter in Mandaluyong, they named their group Makabuhay Movement and started their operation after three consecutive fires in a span of two months swallowed the homes of about 900 families.
Led by Roger Mond, one of the resident artists of Linangan Art Residency Program, their collective efforts were able to amass help and support for the victims of the fire through relief operations and feeding.
Artugon, in partnership with Makabuhay Movement, developed Project Lutong Bahay - a fundraising project for the weekly cooked meal distribution to the victims of fire in Brgy. Addition Hills, Mandaluyong City. It is an income generating project for some victims providing cheap delicious meals to the working class while generating funds for the weekly feeding by the organization.
The team of youth volunteers from our partner Makabuhay Movement were able to prepare and provide cooked meals for 170 victims of fire in Addition Hills
