On the 12th day of July 2013, Empower Philippines was officially launched in my birth town at the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, Philippines. It all started with the gift of having a son with special needs. Zach, diagnosed with Autism at the age of 3, has since been recovering and healing with the grace of God, and through extensive multiple continuous therapies. My husband, Jude and I, felt it was just right that we give back what God has abundantly bestowed upon us. Thus, Empower Philippines was born. The people whom we feel closest to and dearest are the poorest of the poor, the people neglected because of their special disabilities, the ones ignored on the street sides, the lowly ones whose voices are weakened because of poverty.
Thank you to our generous donors, beneficiaries, and sponsors all these years. Because of them and because of your help, not only have we been thriving successfully but we have also become a family of families.
Ladies and gentlemen, please help us celebrate as we turn 3 years old today!
Empowering the Philippines one person at a time.
