“A DAY WITH OUR INDIGENOUS”

On their third year of fruitful partnership, Medical Foundation, Inc. (MFI) and Firmenich (Philippines) jointly conducted an outreach activity at the Aeta Community of Sitio Camachile in Barangay Nabuklod, Florida, Pampanga last September 22, 2016.

 

The Firmenich Team distributed water containers to the 140 households of the community. They also donated gardening tools to the school and also provided lunch for 300 residents. MFI on the other hand donated caps, umbrella and loot bags to the 175 grade school pupils and 10 teachers of Camachile Elementary School. The tandem also engaged themselves in the planting of seedlings after the ceremonial dance of some 'katutubo'. This was followed by classroom activities and fun games for all pupils after were dived into four groups.

 

Firmenich, the largest privately owned international producer of perfumery and flavor chemical, always conducts an annual outreach activity as part of their global community day. The team is headed by their General Manager Isabelle Duret together with Cynthia Macapugay, Tess Carreon , Richard Brillante, Analyn Gonzales, Joyce Anyayahan, Eunice Calinga, Charina Meneses, Armie Misa, Jec Prinsipe, Sheila Reyes, Tina Rosales, Allan Alano and Vercel Sotelo.

 

MFI started supporting our indigenous fellowmen at Sitio Camachile in July of 2013 by donating 10 'Arkong Balag na Bakal' or iron arc trellis which they still use up to now. This is part of MFI’s Livelihood for Indigenous Filipino Ethnicity (L.I.F.E) program. The MFI Team is led by its Executive Director Voltaire Victoria with Bryan Vergara, Cristina Ambrosio, Farley Fernandez, Nercy Fernandez, Jhene Viernes, Shenna Mae Lacson, Raymund Laurilla and Manny Ellip.

 

MFI and Firmenich would like to thank all the volunteers for sharing their time, effort and talent. Special thanks to Pastora Leslie dela Cruz of Camachile United Methodist Church for being the site project coordinator and for the warm hospitality of the whole community.
