July 2011 - Ground Breaking
The Padua Charitable Fund is providing 35 families living in
slums in Paranaque Philippines with new decent homes. This current
housing project and monitoring is at the Sapang Maligaya village
(Baranggay Sun Valley, Paranaque). Construction of the first 12
houses commenced this July.
The building of new houses begins in an
underprivileged area of Paranaque.
The ground-breaking ceremonies were aptly held on the 5th of
July, the birthday of the late Blitz Padua, in whose memory the
Padua Charitable Fund was founded.
The Padua Charitable Fund is proud to be
funding this project.
PCF has also sponsored the building of 4 houses in the GK Eldorado
(Airlift Asia) Village and a number of PCF beneficiaries are volunteering
on the construction site. Additionally, in a Laguna housing site,
the PCF has helped 4 families, employees of Islas Designs, complete
their relocated homes following eviction from the slums.
The Sapang Maligaya village housing project would not have been
possible without the generous donation of First State Company
(based in Singapore and Scotland). Maraming Salamat Po First State!
