Financial, academic, social and emotional incentives were offered to the population benefiting from the Fairplay For All social action.
Press release.- The weekend was different for FBM Foundation! Ten organization volunteers spent their Saturday (October 22nd) in a solidarity action designed to support Fairplay For All Foundation, a small charity operating in Payatas, Quezon City.
Payatas is known as the region in Metro Manila where the garbage industry has the biggest impact. It is the main source of income for many of the families living here, even since the dumpsite closed operations. Most people work as garbage truck drivers, garbage collectors and scavengers, living near or below the poverty line.
To mitigate the existent problems, Fairplay For All Foundation has become embedded in the community in order to help them surpass those difficulties.
The institution usually conducts its solidarity actions by taking into consideration a few pillars: education, finances, mental health and food. In order to do that, the institution uses its support programs, which happen at the Fairplay Café, Fairplay Youth Center and Payatas Sports Center.
A partnership with relevant impact for population with ongoing struggles
In order to help Filipino scholars who suffer the consequences of unemployment and scarcity in the Payatas region, FBM Foundation donated several goods not only to the Cafeteria and Youth Center project, but also to more than 60 families of scholars.
The donation contained food, essential equipment and other goods. The whole list included: food processors, several rice sacks, large woks, home gallery 12L and 18L boxes, air fryers, blenders and vegetable oils, beans and lentils, alcohol, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, pencil boxes, black and red ballpen boxes, whiteboard marker boxes, bookshelves for the library, brain quest for the kindergarten (from grade 1 to 6), A4 bond paper boxes, legal bond papers and educational toys.
“Making a hopeful and inspiring impact in the lives of those who find themselves in hard situations means to give them an impulse to be whatever they want to be. Sometimes, all it needs is a helping hand and Fairplay For All Foundation has done tremendous work in this field”, explains Vitor Francisco, representative of FBM Foundation. “When we got this help request, we couldn’t reject such an important measure to the people of Payatas”, adds the spokesman.
