Honorary Consul General of the Republic of San Marino to the Philippines Jean Henri Lhuillier donated P5,000 cash each to two chosen families from Noveleta, Cavite that were greatly devastated by the recent habagat.
Jose Dela Cruz, father of four, was with his children Jimmy and Chereme Dela Cruz. With no permanent work, he has to depend on sidelines to earn a living for his family. Leonila Cahigus, mother of seven, came with daughter Darilyn Cahigus. They lost their house due to the floods brought about by the recent habagat. The families were chosen in coordination with the Municipality of Cavite. Apart from the cash donation, they also shopped for clothes and school supplies courtesy of Con.-Gen. Lhuillier.
Present in the event was the management team of the PJ Lhuillier Inc: Marissa Ancog, Corporate Planning Communications Group Head; Leo Escano, President of the Cebuana Lhuillier Bank; Danny Francisco, Executive Assistant to the President and CEO; Jose Miguel Jimenez, Chief Administrator Officer Corporate Services Group Head; and Head of Pawnshop Operations; Ergie Ong, Chief Communication Technology Group Head; and Atty. Luis Velasquez, Chief Legal Officer and Legal Services Group Head.
Furthermore, 300 families from Noveleta Cavite were given relief goods by the San Marino Consulate Office to the Philippines and the volunteers from Cebuana Lhuillier. With the help of the Municipal Office led by Mayor Enrico Alvarez, the Consulate was able to determine the barangay which needs help the most after being hit by the southwest monsoon. The recipients patiently lined up under the heat of the sun to receive the relief goods for their respective families. As they receive their bag of goods, each one expressed their gratitude to the volunteers and to San Marino for remembering them in their time of need.
