Last January 26, the City of Cadiz honored Virlanie Foundation with the 2nd Cadizeños Award for the work they have done in Tiglawigan, following the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan.

This award was given to recognize the efforts of the Foundation and its partners l’Amade, Pompiers Solidaires, and “Plateforme humanitaire et de solidarité de l’Hérault” for their various development projects in Tiglawigan, Cadiz City. Among them: the reconstruction and rehabilitation of Tiglawigan Elementary School, and the livelihood and financial support given to over 130 families in the nearby fisherman village.
