Christmas is a special season for Filipinos. One of the traditions looked forward to very much in the Philippines is the Christmas dinner feast, called ‘Noche Buena’. Unfortunately, not all families can afford this due to the widespread poverty in the country.
That is why we, the Youth for a United World of the Philippines, launched a project to encourage people to make this Christmas season a meaningful moment, by sharing what they have and sponsor an impoverished family’s Noche Buena.
By committing to give 500 PHP (10 Euro), one can give a whole family something to look forward to during this season of love and sharing. These Christmas feasts will be distributed to the poorest families living in the communities supported by the Bukas Palad (Open Hands) social centres (http://www.bukaspalad.org/) around the Philippines. Most of them are victims of the typhoon, floods and earthquake that took place during this year.
