Kevin Dave Piring, 7
Madapdap Resettlement Site
Kevin is a diagnosed case of cerebral palsy. He is the youngest child of Mariter and Mario Piring, former evacuees of Clark Airforce Base Communications Command (CABCOM) in Pampanga, Philippines. Mario, Kevin’s father is a construction worker while Mariter, Kevin’s mother stays at home to care for her four children. The family stayed in the CABCOM evacuation site from 1995-1997 where they used the groundwater for drinking, cooking and bathing. Mariter's baby, prior to Kevin, died 24 hours after birth. She was adviced by doctors and NGO workers against another pregnancy fearing similar results. Nevertheless she became pregnant again with Kevin while still at CABCOM.
