“Haunted

By Jonas Reyes

OLONGAPO CITY – Becoming one of the hottest tourist site in the city, a haunted house here plans to give its earning to the less fortunate kids in Abra and Samar. The Kinier Homes, an apartment building, has again made a part of their establishment into haunted house.

Every night, around 400 customers visit the Halloween attraction in Olongapo, bringing much-needed finances for their humanitarian cause. With an admission fee of P75, customers get a scare and a laugh while helping out the community.

According to owner Ron Harkins, a 75-year-old expat from the United States, the “Haunted Maze for a Cause” started six years ago with the mind to help the less fortunate children in the Philippines. He said that the proceeds gained will be going to the Trust and Believe In Me Foundation (TBIMF).

“The proceeds for the haunted maze will fund two projects: a medical mission in Dolores, Abra; and building a school in Western Samar in the
mountains. They have 92 children there who live in nipa huts trying to study,” Harkins said.

“So everything we get from this, we return to the community,” he added.

Harkins, along with his Filipina wife Nieva Harkins, manage the apartment building all year round but transform it into a Halloween attraction. The two bought the apartment building 20 years ago and started the Halloween tradition in Olongapo more than five years ago.

They sold their property in the states and built the TBIMF and has been helping children in far-flung communities ever since.
