FAABCI Pres. Nida Imperial reports: We have for years been sponsoring children in the Philippines through Pearl S. Buck International for several years now and FAABCI Board Member Norma Yabut regularly visit these kids every year. Last February 16 & 17 Jay and myself, Rick and Norma Yabut with the staff and Director of Pearl S. Buck International Manila visited 13 children; 8 of them sponsored by FAABCI.
Since this was my first time to visit the kids I was so excited and emotional. I cannot stop the tears of joy and happiness and was able to interviewed them: how they are in school and how they feel that they have a sponsor.
They told us that they are lucky and life has changed and they are inspired to study harder to have a better future. They were equally thankful with our little “pasalubongs” and the Christmas money that we always give for the holidays.
