Because if not us, then who? It's time for us to look beyond our comfortable lives in our comfortable houses and offices and give back. Ask yourself, what kind of impact do you want to make in the lives of your underserved kababayans?

This #GivingTuesday, please consider helping FYLPRO in making even a small difference in the lives of the childreTrue Manila by Edwin Nombres Bukid, Manila through True Manila by Edwin Nombre Pamanan. These kababayans live in poverty so extreme that some of them live in the hidden tunnels in conditions worse than our pets do in the US.

Our goal for today is to raise $1,000 to support the good work of True Manila and kuya Edwin. Please donate below or on the FYLPRO website: fylpro.org/support/

We know that you could support so many other causes today, but maraming salamat po in advance for choosing to support FYLPRO + True Manila. We wish you a great holiday season surrounded by family and friends!

FYLPRO

After the 2019 immersion program wrapped up, FYLPRO Vice President Joshua Ang Price and new Batch 8 delegate Kevin Zagala attended the Awards Ceremony for the International Film Festival Manila held at the Film School Manila.

The winning film was "No Man Left Behind: A Story of Valor in the Battle of Marawi," which incorporated real footage, as well as recovered enemy footage, from the terrible 2017 conflict. The film was directed by Ella Mage, a journalist from Iligan who was on the ground covering the story for 5 months for Al Jazeera English and BBC News.

In attendance was Captain Erwin Czar C. Ercilla who valiantly fought in the Battle of Marawi. He and his men were given only one hour to prepare a plan to rescue 20 military hostages from the 5th Mechanized Battalion before marching 40 hours straight into the battle zone in Marawi. 16 of their fellow servicemen were rescued alive, yet they continued to fight to recover the bodies of the 4 who had fallen, with 17 of their men being injured in the process -- because no man is left behind.

Also present was Tito Jojo Sescon from Iligan, one of the civilian fighters who bravely assisted the soldiers in their mission even though he had no formal combat training.

All three were presented with FYLPRO challenge coins for their extreme acts of courage and selflessness in answering the call to serve and protect their kababayan and preserve the freedom and safety of their Filipino communities.

The winning film won a $200 prize, yet Ella and her crew graciously donated it to the families of the servicemen who had fallen in the battle.

The other recognized films featured topics like mental health and depression, the future role of tech and artificial intelligence in our society, and HIV/AIDS awareness in the Philippines.

Thank you to International Film Festival Manhattan NYC Director Luis Pedron, Jeanette Marco, International Film Festival Manila Emir Kahn Bautista, and Jheng Miranda of Film School Manila for creating a vehicle to showcase our Filipino stories of persistence and triumph in the face of adversity. 🇵🇭

FYLPRO

Last act before going back to the States:

FYLPRO partnered with actor Sid Lucero on True Manila by Edwin Nombre Holiday Project to feed 1,000 children in San Andres Bukid and provide them with t-shirts and toys for Christmas. FYLPRO batch 7 and 8 alumni represented at the event and witnessed the harsh reality for some of our kababayans. From the luxury hotel of Seda Residences Makati to one of the poorest areas of Manila, only miles apart, it is indeed a stark contrast.

This is only the beginning of rekindling the bayanihan spirit of these Filipino-Americans. We are excited to see what impact they will make in Filipino communities in the Philippines and in the United States.

FYLPRO

Today was the last day of the immersion program. This morning, the delegates each had their meetings with their mentors to discuss their legacy projects and come up with an action plan. While the delegates were busy with their mentors, executive committee members JR Calanoc, Joshua Price, and Char McGinnis distributed food and toys to 200 children of San Andres Bukid in coordination with True Manila. It was an eye-opening experience as the ECOM went inside the hidden tunnels or abandoned viaducts where families live in poverty so extreme that pets in America have better lives.

The delegates had a feedback session with AFI and DFA in the afternoon before getting ready for the closing ceremony.

Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, President and CEO of Ayala Corp., gave the opening remarks, and Department of Foreign Affairs Undersecretary for Strategic Communications Ernesto Abella provided the closing remarks. FYLPRO was pleased to be able to present the Ayala Foundation with a check for Php 400,000 to help fund its community improvement projects.

Each delegate shared their sentiments about the entire week. They were challenged to use FYLPRO as a platform to elevate Filipinos and Filipino-Americans within their communities.

Congratulations, Batch Otso! We look forward to future collaborations and projects!

Thank you to DFA and AFI for your continuing support!
