FBM Foundation organized the fifth action of its “Bayanihan Para sa Kababayan” program on Saturday, to assist the community in the Villa Maria Aeta Resettlement Area in Pampanga, The Philippines, by providing the local indigenous community food, necessity kits, and educational supplies with the help of 20 volunteers.
Guided by Barangay’s Captain Rogelio Valencia Jr., the FBM team took upon an ambitious plan that included the distribution of 400 food packs, curated to include essential items such as rice, canned goods, noodles, and non-perishable goods.
“In a testament to their dedication, the FBM Foundation organized a heartwarming feeding program for the local indigenous community. This effort not only sought to nourish their bodies but also their spirits, as it was a true symbol of unity and care,” the organization noted.
According to a press release, the organization also extended its support to the local daycare center, catering to the growth of up to 40 children as it “understands the value of education and child development”. The Foundation equipped the space with art materials, educational toys, an electric fan, a speaker, and a brand-new set of tables and chairs.
“This comprehensive support aims to create a conducive and comfortable learning environment, fostering the growth of young minds and nurturing their instructors,” a press statement reads. The volunteers ensured the children had snacks, including biscuits and boxes of juice.
Under the ‘Bayanihan Para sa Kababayan’ initiative, the FBM Foundation’s mission in Porac, Pampanga, “stands as a testament to their unwavering dedication to uplifting communities and spreading joy,” according to the organization.
“Their mission goes beyond mere charity; it sets a remarkable example of kindness that helps build a more welcoming, nurturing, and supportive community, not just for the Aeta community but for all the Champions of FBM Foundation,” the statement concluded.
