Remembering Ronaldo “Bong” Alcordo

By Trisha Pitts, project director for the Philippines

Ronoldo "Bong" AlcordoIt is with great sadness that we announce the death of Ronaldo Alcordo, known to everyone as ìBong.” He was the coordinator of subprojects BQ and BU in the Quezon, Philippines, project. Bong was assessing the damage caused by Typhoon Ketsana to the sponsored members in his subprojects, and contracted leptospirosis from the floodwater. Bongís wife, Nenita, is part of the correspondence team at the Quezon coordinating office. They have three children, a 6-year-old son, a 4-year-old daughter and a 6-month-old daughter.

Bong has been an integral and well-loved member of the Quezon team for a number of years, and the entire project is mourning his death. We share in this tremendous tragedy, and keep Bong, his family and the entire project in our hearts and prayers at this time.
