In spite of the emotionally difficult last weeks that prevented me from fully engaging in the promotion of the Befiso Fall Event – Benefit for Laput Mexico Pampanga, it proved to be a nice success thanks to the commitment, the enthousiasm and the hard work of the two hosts, the singers, the dance group, the band, the people in the food counter, the dj, the volunteers, the sponsors and the folks at the front desks (ticketing). Also, I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the people attending the event.

On September 15, 2014 H.E. Benigno S. Aquino III, President of the Philippines came to Brussels to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Philippines – European Union bilateral relations and met with the Leaders of the European Union as well as Presidents and Prime Ministers of the EU Member States to discuss measures for enhanced cooperation.


In addition to the official schedule the President’s key purpose was to meet members of the Filipino Community in Europe, especially in Belgium and Luxembourg, whose contributions to the Philippines, individually and through concerted efforts in raising funds and other assistance for humanitarian causes, most recently for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, have been enormous.


During his speech in the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula the President conveyed His sincerest appreciation to all Filipinos in Europe for their hard work and consistent support through the years. He also expressed His highest regard to the Filipinos in Europe whose high level of talents, expertise and work ethic have distinguished themselves in so many countries, workplaces and communities all over Europe.


We feel really honoured we were invited to attend this special event and to meet in person with H.E. President Benigno S. Aquino III with a delegation of vzw Befiso (Click on last photo for all the pictures).

On August 15 2014 volunteers from vzw Befiso went to BURBULI ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ORIENTAL MINDORO to give slippers, packs of rice and foods to the students. This activity was organised in partnership with BARUYAN RICEMILL.


On behalf of the teaching personel, the parents and the students I want to thank all the people showing their golden heart by donating. A BIG thanks to all the lovely and wonderful passengers on the La Vallée trip (even bearing a lot of stress !). Without you guys vzw Befiso cannot do these kinds of support to the students of Burbuli Elementary School.
