Filipino Young Leaders Program Provide Relief Goods to 718 Families in Pasay, Philippines
The Filipino Young Leaders Program (FYLPRO) in partnership with Barangay Chairman, Arturo Reyes Cruz of Malibay, Pasay raised funds to deliver relief goods to 306 households and 718 families last month.
FYLPRO donated a total of $1,100 which included matches by Immediate Past FYLPRO President JR Canaloc, Secretary Char McGinnis, and current President Joshua Ang Price.
“FYLPRO is proud to be able to help support our kababayans in the Philippines who have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said FYLPRO President Joshua Ang Price. “We are especially thankful to our board member Jan Paul Ferrer in Chicago for leading this effort to provide much-needed food to the residents of Malibay, Pasay.”
The relief goods included rice, sardines, noodles, local corned beef and coffee and were delivered in May.
FYLPRO Board of Director member Jan Paul C. Ferrer spearheaded the private/public partnership which assisted families deeply affected by COVID-19.
“As both the United States and the Philippines battle this pandemic, it is important to show that Filipino Americans are still reaching out to help our fellow kababayans. FYLPRO’s Bayanihan spirit is just a few of many efforts to continue to remind our Kababayans that they are not alone and we are healing as one” said Ferrer.
FYLPRO is continuing to fundraise for the COVID-19 Relief Fund. You can donate here: https://fylpro.org/support/
