In coordination with Holy Family Parish, Las Pinas Chapter, Fortune Life launched its Nourishing Program by feeding 200 children residing in Sitio Pugad Lawin, Almanza II, Las Pinas City on December 12, 2021. The company strongly believes in the importance of building community shared values through this activity. Aside from the food packs, volunteers joined hands in giving 200 school kits with Christmas goodies to the poor families in the Pugad Lawin community.
The program began with an opening prayer followed by the inspirational message of Rolan dela Vega, Fortune Life Senior Vice President for Finance Division. Dela Vega emphasized the importance of giving hope to the youth as he, himself, once lived in Tondo and was able to overcome hardships in life by not giving up on his dreams.
The children, ages three to seven, were all smiles and had fun as they were entertained by an amazing magician as part of the program. The families danced and enjoyed listening to the new Fortune Life corporate jingle entitled “Sandalan” while they received the goodies and school kits for their kids.
Fortune Life hopes that this simple activity of giving back to the community ripples a multitude of good deeds not only during the Christmas season but throughout the year.
