The Philam Group’s CSR arm, Philam Foundation (PFI), continues its philanthropic endeavours by continuing its partnership with the Happy Hearts Fund (HHF), which aims to rebuild safe, resilient schools in areas impacted by natural disasters.  PFI and HHF recently signed an agreement for another joint project to build nine classrooms worth US$225,000 (Php10Million).

The Happy Hearts Fund was founded in 2006 by Petra Nemcova after she survived the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Its mission aligns perfectly with the Philam Paaralan program of Philam Foundation, which aims to build classrooms in calamity-stricken areas around the country with the assistance of the Department of Education. To date, the program has constructed 101 classrooms since it started 4 years ago in 2012.


Present during the MOA signing at the Philippine Consulate in New York City were (from left) PFI President Max Ventura, Ms Universe Pia Wurtzbach, who lent her support for this project that will benefit her fellow “kababayans”,  HHF Founder and President Petra Nemcova, Handang Tumulong President Nelsie Parrado and Philippine Consul Felipe Cariño III.
