A Virlanie Christmas

This year, A Virlanie Christmas it is themed “A Bayanihan Christmas of Care and Commitment” because we aim to bring people together in the spirit of bayanihan, the Filipino concept of solidarity and support system that people practice genuinely in the community they belong to.

While Christmas is a festive season for most Filipino families, for children and families in street situations is another day for survival.

This Christmas, be a bayani (hero) and give a long-lasting and meaningful gift to our children: their holistic development.
