This past week our founder Robert Angeles and President James Brightwell helped Father Boyet celebrate Christmas with the children of San Martin's. The children participated in games,received gifts,had a great meal and had a chance to greet Santa (James Brightwell). This was made possible by the generosity of all our donors to whom we extend our thanks and wishes for a blessed Christmas. We thank you for making a difference!
We would like to introduce you to Freddie Verzosa,MD who is one of the our PAOPI supporters. Freddie ran the NYC Marathon to help raise funds for the programs that PAOPI supports in the Philippines. Freddie finished the marathon in 4 hours and 11 seconds, a 17 minute improvement over the prior year. PAOPI and all its members congratulate Freddie for his great time in the marathon and thank him for the funds raised by his run. With the help of Freddie, PAOPI raised over 1,600.00 dollars which will help provide an education for the street children of San Martin de Porres. This Program in the Philippines is under the spiritual supervision and guidance of Rev. Father Florentino "Boyet" Concepcion. One Hundred percent of the raised funds will be directed towards this program.
