Last May 1, Xavier School Batch ’83 Foundation held a block-screening of Captain America – Civil War at the Robinson’s Magnolia Movieworld. Together with the families of the batch, the beneficiaries of Hero Foundation were invited to come and watch.
The Hero Foundation is an institution which provides “support for the children of the soldiers from the Armed Forces of the Philippines who made the supreme sacrifice of dying or being permanently incapacitated in the line of duty of being vanguards of our freedom and national sovereignty.”
An excerpt from Michelle Chan’s (Director for Marketing and Resource Mobilization of Hero Foundation) thank you letter to the batch follows:
“Indeed, yesterday’s ‘Gift of Joy’ from Xavier School Batch ’83 Foundation was greatly appreciated and enjoyed by the HERO Foundation scholars and their mothers.
It’s seldom that these orphans are treated for such and when they are remembered because of their fathers’ sacrifices, these children and families are given much more than the actual physical gift – a sense of love (fatherly/family love), belongingness, joy, and pride.
Thank you for taking time out to be with these children of our fallen soldiers.
From HERO Foundation to XS Batch 83 Foundation, Mabuhay, Saludo at Salamat po!”
