P&A and its partner organizations for this project — Philippine Business for Social Progess (PBSP), Kapitbahayan Elementary School, Department of Education (DepEd), and Kabisig ng Kalahi Foundation– signed the contract.
Last month, P&A for a CAUSE (PAUSE) visited the little angels of the Fe Del Mundo Medical Center – Pediatric Cancer Unit. Spearheaded by Che Iglesias of Audit Group A, the event was held on September 23, 2006 in cooperation with the Leukemic Indigents Fund Endowment (L.I.F.E).
After a grueling busy season and, for some, a well-deserved respite in breathtaking Boracay, 18 P&A staff, alumni and friends flocked to the function hall of Our Lady of Fatima Chapel on Zapanta Street, Manila, last June 4 for another well-attended P&A for a Cause (PAUSE) activity dubbed “Serbisyo Medikal,” a circumcision mission. PAUSE offered manpower assistance and sponsored medical-related items.
Through the initiative of Ice Ayson, Project Head of P&A for a Cause (PAUSE), P&A Davao was tapped to help promote civic and social awareness among its staff, who whole-heartedly dedicated portions of their hard-earned salary to an indeed worthy cause.Committed to aiding the less fortunate youth in their pursuit of learning and education, PAUSE teamed up with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (Mindanao Regional Operations) to organize the Education Through My Charitable Contribution (E=MC2) Program, a fund-raising campaign for schoolchildren in depressed areas in Mindanao.
