Due to the recent calamities that struck our country, thousands of Filipino families will be celebrating this Christmas in evacuation sites and temporary shelters.
Habitat for Humanity Philippines (Habitat) reaches out to these people in its commitment to build homes and bring hope in disaster affected communities.
Habitat’s annual Christmas program “Pamaskong Handog” (Christmas offering) inspires the public to reach out to our fellow Filipinos in need during this season of giving.
Through this initiative, companies and organizations can set aside some funds from their Christmas party budget, or gather voluntary contribution among members which will help ongoing rehabilitation efforts in various areas nationwide. In appreciation of their generosity, Habitat will match every P1000 donation with a Noche Buena pack to be shared with its assisted family under the donor’s name.
“This season is the best opportunity to show that a little help goes a long way for a family who would like Christmas a bit more special.” Charlie Ayco, CEO and Managing Director of Habitat says.
More than just giving Noche Buena packs, Pamaskong Handog is really about rekindling hope among numerous families’ who slowly rebuild and improve their lives when they move to their new home.
“Like Jesus Christ who was born in a humble shelter, he was able to inspire hope to a vast majority of people. Together with our donors, would also like to lead by example and demonstrate the love of Christ through this program”, Ayco adds.
