 EBM Junior Council 2015 Launches Feeding Program


Lando’s wrath was no match to Paolo’s grit. When Typhoon Lando hovered over Luzon and threatened Metro Manila with strong winds and destructive floodwaters last October 18, 2015, Paolo Vera, the current EBM Junior Council Chair, was undeterred. Together with two equally resolute members, Monty Ngan, a high school senior at Xavier School and Rica Garin, a 13th Grade student from British School Manila, they braved the stormy weather and launched EBM’s Feeding Program at the Jose Fabella Memorial School* in Mandaluyong City.


During the short program, Paolo and Monty delivered inspirational messages. Paolo shared the news that the feeding will become a regular activity starting in December 2015 and will continue on every Saturday in 2016. For her part, Rica enlivened the mood of the crowd with her rendition of Maroon 5’s “Sunday Morning,” Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” and Yeng Constantino’s “Hawak Kamay” (Hand-in-Hand) which prompted the children to gamely sing along with her.


Later on, Paolo, Monty & Rica distributed food packs to around 180 appreciative and well-behaved pupils. Then ice-cream carts with 4 yummy flavors were wheeled in to the delight of the kids. The smile on the kids’ faces remained as they took home colored shirts. They also received medicines from the Philippine Department of Health.
