Filipinos are known for being generous and helpful–some of our notable traits that we proudly possess. Wherever we are, most Filipinos aim to aid their fellow countrymen by donating to charities or by sending money overseas.
This is made possible through Give2Asia, which is a non-profit organization based in San Francisco, USA, that serves as a conduit to bridge resources from Filipinos abroad who want to donate to noteworthy programs that benefit fellow Filipino-Americans in Asia.
The Philippines has received a big donation from Filipinos overseas through Give2Asia, who partnered with Philam Foundation in the construction of “Philam Paaralan” classrooms in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyen, in the hope of bringing back a sense of normalcy and an environment conducive for learning.
Each Philam Paaralan classroom is typhoon-resilient, fully-furnished and complete with restrooms and water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) facilities.
Together, Philam Foundation and Give2Asia continue to provide charitable works throughout the country.
Philam Paaralan is the flagship program of Philam Foundation, the CSR arm of the Philam Group, with the mission of helping people to live longer, healthier and better lives. To date, the program has constructed 101 classrooms since it started 4 years ago in 2012.
