Immediately after Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda onslaught in central Philippines, Canada sent the Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) to the Philippines to assist in the relief and rescue efforts in the disaster zones in the Panay Islands. Their heroic efforts must have saved thousands of lives from disease, hunger, thirst and lack of shelter. The DART team comprised of medical , engineering and other rescue personnel. The Canadian tents are still in existence in Estancia, Iloilo as a strong reminder of the support given by Canada to the Philippines. Canada's contributions from private and government promised matching grants have reached $170 Million.
It is now time for us to thank our DART heroes personally as they will be at the Pinoy Fiesta and Trade Show on June 28. They will be given special recognition at the event, after all they deserve all the accolades and it is part of the Pinoy Spirit of friendship and camaraderie. The team will be on hand to answer questions and to demonstrate their capabilities. Come join us at the Pinoy Fiesta and meet our heroes. visit www.philippinecanadianfoundation.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Missing limbs and disfigured faces are just some of the qualities of Leprosy victims. Although these ancient disease is now curable, the victims are still being haunted by their misfortunes. Leprosy victims were more often ostracized by their communities, even their families. They are the poorest of the poor and they are the most likely to be hopeless and feel their lives as meaningless.
Philippine Canadian Charitable Foundation or PCCF wants to give them hope, PCCF wants to give them dignity and meaningful life. PCCF are donating the funds to build them homes through ANCOP or Answering the cry of the Poor organization. Last January a group of PCCF officials led by EVP Rosemer Enverga with Miss Philippines Canada Caitlin Pantaleon, Mrs. Philippines Canada Chona Stinson and Little Miss Philippines Canada Anjali Pathmanathan visited the site at Tala, Caloocan to meet the recipients of the first ten houses. Another ten houses were pledged to complete the village. The delegation was greeted by performances from the children and adults. Later on that day, the pageantries distributed four balikbayan boxes of backpacks donated by the Pantaleon Family, full of school supplies to children and bags full of candies and other goodies.
It was truly an experience of a lifetime for the PCCF delegation, most especially the pageantry for indeed their hard work has paid off, they made quite a remarkable difference to other peoples' lives. They are giving hope and dignity to the leprosy victims, they are even bringing their families together by living in their own homes. One of the recipients quoted, " they are not only beautiful outside but also beautiful inside". PCCF president, Romy Rafael declared, "We can only help if our events like Pinoy Fiesta and the pageantry are successful , we have to work harder, we need everyone's support, we have to be united to be able to help the poorest of the poor, we have to have fun and help at the same time."

Through the successful appeal of Father Ben Ebcas, individuals and communities from all faiths and cultures united to help the millions of Filipinos impacted by Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda last November, 2013. Special thanks to the Canadian Government of who doubled all eligible donations to this worthy cause, the volunteers of the Our Lady of Assumption Church, Rosemer Enverga chair of the Archdiocesan Filipino Catholic Missions (AFCM) and to the community!
Solicitation of over $230,000 that was sent through Sharelife, matched dollar for dollar by the Government of Canada. In two weeks time, the total donation to the affected areas reached over 16 million pesos. A great work indeed by everyone who donated and volunteered to make a difference for the community.
