Companies come together for Marawi schoolchildren

At the end of Ramadan, some 3,000 young survivors of the Marawi siege received school kits and storybooks from donors who included kids their age, families, and companies through a project initiated by the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP).

In partnership with De La Salle Philippines, the “Sa Pagbasa, May Pag-asa” Consortium provided thousands of storybooks, school kits, and home kits to the people affected by the May 2017 siege. Many students from other schools also donated their baon for a day while some families (both Muslims and non-Muslims) fasted or skipped a meal.
