In October 2014, we gathered all our major partners and supporters in a thanksgiving dinner held in Urdaneta Village. It was a night filled with gratitude to God Almighty and to all our friends who helped us with the construction of the He Cares Center. Construction work began in March 2014 and after only 7 months, we were about 45% done with the structure.
The event was kicked off with a Holy Mass celebrated by Fr. Eric Santos. Next, the Ezekiel Builders represented by Architect Delfin Viola, presented the structural design to our guests. This was followed by the presentation of the Space Encounters, an Interior Designing Company with Wilmer Lopez at the helm.
A good friend of He Cares, TJ Manotoc, emceed the program which was highlighted by renditions of praise songs by Anna Stein and an inspiring testimony by Evan Clem Villarin.
From the bottom of our hearts we say , “Thank You” to our friends at ITO SUPPORTING COMITY. It was in 2013 when He Cares forged a partnership with the ITO SUPPORTING COMITY. Our Japanese friends pledged to support the Back-to-Health Program through their lump sum donation. This was formalized with the visit of the President of the Company herself.
It was a great honor to be chosen as a recipient of this Japanese foundation which has helped many organizations around the world.
