NEW ANCOP CANADA SITE TO RISE ON PAMPANGA
Tuesday, September 10, 2019
It was a significant day for all despite the heavy rain, as the successful Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing and Groundbreaking Ceremony of the first ANCOP site in the Municipality of Lubao, Pampanga was commenced on September 9, 2019. The new ANCOP site, initially named Greatway Financial-CFC ANCOP Canada Municipality of Lubao Community, is collaborative work of CFC ANCOP Global Foundation, Inc. (CAGFI), ANCOP Canada, CFC Pampanga, and the Local Government Unit of Lubao, Pampanga.
This site at Barangay Santiago was made possible by the generosity of Bro. Marlon and Elsa Antonio from Calgary, Canada, owners of Greatway Financial. They chose Lubao as the site location where one of them grew up, making this as their way of giving back to the place they loved and called “home.”
The ceremony was attended by Bro. Ricky Cuenca, ANCOP Canada President; Bro. Efren Tompong, CAGFI Community Development Head; Mayor Esmeralda Pineda of Lubao, Pampanga; the Area Governance Team of CFC Pampanga headed by their Provincial Area Head (PAH) Bro. Hermie Vargas; and the hopeful beneficiaries from Brgy. Santiago.
All of them express their thanksgiving on this significant day, as they were all blessed by God with so much. The site and the ceremony were blessed by Rev. Fr. Ferdinand Mangulabnan, Parish Priest of San Rafael Arkangel Parish in Baruya, Lubao, Pampanga. He reminded everyone that it should not be just the home that they should take care of, but importantly, the welfare of the family that will live in it. Bro. Ricky Cuenca also brought them the good news of not just having homes but education for their children as well, once the program is fully implemented.
Above all, all praise and glory are all for God as these were products of His love and generosity to His beloved—the poor. –PMB, ANCOP Communications
A HUNDRED individuals taking temporary refuge at the Ibaan, Batangas Evacuation Center, after being displaced by the Taal Volcano eruption, signed up for the TVET Training to Employment program, a venture sponsored by CFC ANCOP in partnership with DMCI, the Archdiocese of Lipa and Couples for Christ.
On January 12, just as everyone was still on the height of celebrating the start of a new decade, 2020 brought us one of its surprises no one expected—the Taal Volcano eruption. On its first day of volcanic activity, it spewed tons of ashes that greatly affected Batangas, and has reached nearby provinces and even parts of Metro Manila. This caused a lot of damage to the homes and livelihood of the residents, displacing thousands of them to different evacuation centers all over Batangas province.
