Year 2019

To service the needs of the marginalized sectors, including persons with disabilities and diseases, the program donated resources for daily essentials, support therapies, and medicines. This year, the program served The Hansen Lepers Association of Cebu to empower people diagnosed with Hansen disease to overcome their limitations and to navigate opportunities for a better life. RLC also supported "LaBang (Lahat Bangon)" in Barangay Tejero, a community program organized in conjunction with the drug dependent recovery campaign, through sponsoring meals for participants who joined the educational sessions. Robinsons Hotels and Resorts partnered with the Giving Hope Foundation for its Project Food for Thought, a feeding program for indigent public school students at Pineda Elementary School in Pineda, Pasig. Beneficiaries of the program included malnourished children and indigent students who go to school without food or allowance. The program currently provides nourishment to 300 children throughout the school weeks. In partnership with Philippine Basketball Association (PBA), 20 abled children from Philippine Children's Medical Center Pedriatic Cancer and Hematology Center, together with their parents, were treated to "Christmas Shopping" in Robinsons Galleria Mall during the holiday season. RLC handed out gift certificates to each child, which could be used to purchase toys and clothes inside the mall. The kids were assisted by PBA basketball players and RLC volunteer employees.
