FOOD EMERGENCY IN THE PHILIPPINES: WE NEED YOUR HELP!
With Covid-19 the City of Paombong (Region Bulacan), currently in quarantine, are facing serious food supplies difficulties. For this reason, the Association Culture Ticino Network of Lugano immediately responded to the request for help of the Rdo. Fr. Anacleto C. Ignacio of the Parish of Paombong in the Philippines, with the aim of helping 1’000 families living in extreme poverty. The aid consists in food packages containing rice, noodles, canned goods for these neediest families. On 2nd April, thanks to an initial payment by our Association and the support by other sponsors in the Philippines, has started the distribution of the food packages.
In May there were further distributions of food packages and medicines. However, these actions will not be enough for the future! That is why we want to ensure the continuity of this project in the coming months. Help us too with the fundraising too!
