Cherry Mobile Supports Family Strengthening Endeavors

January 4, 2017

A total of 3,000 indigent families nationwide were delighted to receive unexpected Noche Buena packages and solar lanterns. Dubbed as “12 Gifts of Christmas”, this special project is done annually to help strengthen family bond – a valuable Filipino culture that Cherry Mobile has promoted.
 
  
                                                                                                                                              Noche buena packs distributed to families

Having a decent meal to share with family members in a well-lighted home is a whole new level of experience that made Christmas more special and something to cherish for a lifetime. This project is a community outreach activity to less fortunate families particularly those living in far flung areas where assistance rarely comes in. What further brightened the gift-giving activity was the inclusion of Solar Lanterns courtesy of Sparklight Inc. This helped aid the community residents who don’t have access to electricity.
 
 
                                                                                        School children in Papatahan Elementary School, Laguna, happily received their solar lanterns.

The project brought joy to different communities for four (4) years now, as one way of giving back to communities that have contributed to Cherry Mobile’s success.
 
 
                                                                                             The solar lantern lighted the beneficiary’s home at night in an islet of Guimaras Province.

Since this project was launched in 2013, several companies within the Cherry Mobile supply chain including the government and civil society have supported the project. Truly, we can help people’s lives when we bring work together.
 
 
                                                                                         These children in Iligan, Lanao Del Norte, also enjoyed Cosmic’s company during the activity.

Cherry Mobile expresses its sincere gratitude to partners and volunteers who wholeheartedly rendered their contribution for the successful delivery of hope and joy to the families despite the unpredictable weather, muddy trails, and hours of walk. Look forward to more families being touched next Christmas season. Let your significant act of kindness warm more hearts!
 
                                                                                                  Four NGO’s in Manila celebrated Christmas together through the Gift Giving.
