Netherlands based Liliane Foundation Philippines has recently sealed its partnership with MCCID College of Technology by initially providing scholarship grants to ten deaf students.
This was announced during the Annual Christmas Party last December 14 at their Head Office in St. Joseph\’s College Compound, Quezon City attended by mediators and representatives of Metro Manila partner organizations. Liliane Philippines National Correspondent Ma. Teresa Dela Cruz awarded the check worth P50,000 as preliminary support for the ten selected deaf students. Each student receives P5,000 to partially provide for their tuition fee payments. Their families are expected to give their counterpart of the fund.
Receiving the check was MCCID Training Director Jojo Esposa Jr. who also serves as Liliane Foundation\’s Official Mediator. Sir Jojo, in return, was grateful for the assistance and conveyed the appreciation in behalf of MCCID College Board of Trustees. Liliane promised to continue supporting the school and would soon be collaborating in a project that would provide employment and skills training for the Filipino Deaf.
For her part, Liliane Foundation Philippines National Coordinator Sis. Agnetia Naval congratulated the attendees for successfully reaching the goal of assisting more than 10,000 children with disabilities for 2009. She increased 2010\’s goal by 500 to further provide medical, financial, educational and other assistance to disabled kids in the Philippines.
\”Lord, here am I, Send me!”, was the main topic of her message as she announced her 50th year in religious service on May 15, 2010. She opined that there are still many children out there who are in need of assistance. She was also equally excited to the partner organizations for their enthusiasm in doing their mandate to help the children of the Lord.
The partial list students who received financial assistance are: Anne Marielle Madlangbayan, Jeiel Karl Haguisan, Janine Galao, Mary Grace Caraang, Jepa Kerena Basilio, Cristel Manipol, Ariel Quibol and Moises Libot.
Videoke singing, well wishers and sharing of blessings among mediators and organization representatives dominated the festive occasion which lasted in the early evening. Liliane has more than 100 partner organizations nationwide as well as a dozen more in Vietnam.
