FBM Foundation announced Monday that ten of its volunteers participated last Saturday in a solidarity action designed to support Fairplay For All Foundation, a small charity operating in Quezon City, Philippines. Financial, academic, social and emotional incentives were offered to the population, which benefited from the social action.
Payatas is known as the region in Metro Manila where the garbage industry has the biggest impact, notes FBM’s charity arm. It is the main source of income for many of the families living here, even since the dumpsite closed operations. Most people work as garbage truck drivers, garbage collectors and scavengers, living near or below the poverty line.
“To mitigate the existent problems, Fairplay For All Foundation has become embedded in the community in order to help them surpass those difficulties,” FBM explained in a press release. The institution conducts its actions by taking into consideration a few pillars: education, finances, mental health and food. In order to do that, it carries out a number of support programs at Fairplay Café, Fairplay Youth Center and Payatas Sports Center.
In order to help Filipino scholars who suffer the consequences of unemployment and scarcity in the Payatas region, FBM Foundation donated several goods not only to the Cafeteria and Youth Center project, but also to more than 60 families of scholars, the company noted. The donation contained food, essential equipment and other goods.
Vitor Francisco, representative of FBM Foundation, said: “Making a hopeful and inspiring impact in the lives of those who find themselves in hard situations means to give them an impulse to be whatever they want to be.”
“Sometimes, all it needs is a helping hand and Fairplay For All Foundation has done tremendous work in this field. When we got this help request, we couldn’t reject such an important measure to the people of Payatas,” he added.
FBM and FBMDS were present at G2E Las Vegas last week, and deemed the show as “the perfect opportunity to strengthen bonds with actual and potential clients for both brands and to showcase new and exclusive product launches.”
‘Lights are on: Play like a champion!’, was the company’s motto for this year’s edition of G2E Las Vegas. A new booth described as ‘eye-catching’ showcased exclusive product portfolios from both FBM and its online gaming arm FBMDS, which ‘caught booth visitors’ attention at the fair.’
