EMBRACE through the Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc., provided food packs to beneficiaries from the province of Ilocos Sur on February 20, 2019.
The distribution held in two municipalities of Ilocos Sur, Magsingal and Caoayan, aimed to target mostly senior citizens and single mothers coming from poverty-stricken families. Anita, one of the beneficiaries, gladly thanked the program saying, “Thank you EMBRACE for the food packs. I hope that this will be repeated because a lot of us are poor and we cannot afford to buy the basic necessities we need like food, especially that they are very expensive nowadays.”
Together with the assistance of the barangay local government officials, the activity once again was a success and contributed to the United Nations Sustainable Developmental Goal (UN SDG Goal) #2 End Hunger.
