January Update: On Friday, 29th January 2021, the first distribution of school supplies for the neediest children of the Elementary School in Paombong took place. Due to pandemic, the materials were distributed to parents because the children cannot go to school yet. We sincerely thank Mrs. Janet and other teachers for their valuable cooperation.
Updating July month: After a long period of stalemate, due to the sharp increase of COVID-19 infections in Philippines, another distribution was organized on 11th July 2021, in collaboration with our twin association Culture Ticino Network and Philippines association of Paombong in Philippines, in Barangay San Isidro I of Paombong in Bulacan region. The Barangay lives in a state of extreme poverty. Most people live by fishing, meanwhile the others live by collecting rubbish.
During the day, the food parcels composed of 2kg of rice, noodles, coffee and canned goods were distributed to 120 poor families. For the occasion, 144 bottles of vitamins were also distributed to malnourished children with a very weak immune system.
Our warm thanks to all the supporters and in particular to our volunteers in the Philippines, the Head of Barangay Mrs. Kagawad Jong Vergara for precious help and Mr. Jude Trinidad of St. Luke’s Medical Foundation of Manila for vitamins sponsorship.
