SIFCare is very grateful for the support and donations received from the “Run for the Turtles” event organized by Globe Telecom Transport and Division Network (TDN Department) last September 14 at the BGC grounds.
The event which was well attended by Globe Telecom’s families and friends was able to raise more than P60,000 that went entirely to SIFCare’s CURMA project which is committed to preserving and protecting endangered marine turtles that lay nests in the beaches of La Union. The funds will soon be used for hatchery maintenance and for the pawikan incentive program.
Recently, the Globe’s TND Department went up to La Union to turn over their donations and to do a coastal & hatchery cleanup. Mr. Rene Go, supervisor of the team, led his crew of 17 members in the activity. The group was then toured by SIFCare to Lotus Valley Forest Farm, a notable tourist destination in La Union, where they were joined by another group of volunteers for a Plant-based Lunch Kamayan.
After lunch, SIFCare and Globe’s group presented their respective song numbers and exchanged ideas with opportunities of collaboration in the future. At the end of the program, SIFCare CEO Ms. Socorro Bismark, presented a Certificate of Appreciation to Globe for their relentless support to SIFCare’s mission.
