*Trade Fair: Community products will also be promoted during the summit. The organizers will allocate booths for the organizations that have community products.  This would provide leverage for community-based commodities against the commercially available products. This would also be a good venue to target sympathy market and trade fair advocates that support local entrepreneurs. (Open to all social enterprise. Reserve now for limited slots available). *Bloodletting activity: In partnership with Red Cross Misamis Oriental Chapter, VOICE will hold bloodletting activity which will benefit cancer patients and IPs in the region. It’s a tribute to former VOICE cluster coordinator (Divina Gracia Benitez), who at 27 died due to lung cancer and who devoted most of her youthful years in volunteering, especially with the IPs. (Not limited to NVS delegates. Open to the public).
