4 B’s (Box, bags, books, buttons)

Posted by admin | Posted on January 22, 2016

 January 22, 2016,

At  last,  the balikbayan box from NYC, USA via Johnny Ocean,  came today with chock full of books, bags, candies and clothes for our adopted community in Alabang, Muntinlupa, Philippines, we fondly call HAPI-Riles. It is a nice feeling to make someone happy and HAPI.

Some books from the USA

More local books came from Daniel Hill, Chief, HAPI – Youth Divison  for the HAPI library.

A button pin maker was donated by HAPI to Alabang HAPI-Riles to promote
self- sufficiency,  fulfilling our mission to teach people how to fish so they can eat for a lifetime.
We also hope that the nutritional campaign will be financed by  the small businesses we have given
to the HAPI-Riles Poject implementer, Jamie del Rosario Martinez.
