Honorary Consul General of the Republic of San Marino to the Philippines Jean Henri Lhuillier donated P10,000 cash to Maria Kathrina “Kcat” Yarza, a representative of the Green Years Apartment Peeps (GYA Peeps). GYA Peeps is a group of volunteers who raise funds to give children in Malabon a memorable Christmas Eve.
The group has been holding Christmas party for children since 1994. Unfortunately, it ceased after Kcat was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2), a very rare genetic disease in August 2004. This year they have decided to reinvent their traditional Christmas party with the funds that they have collected. Aside from the games and gift giving held at Christmas Eve, they will also be holding a feeding program in the morning.
Kcat is also one of the finalists of the Search for the Happiest Pinoy 2010, a Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Solutions (CLIS) campaign that aims to rekindle the values of optimism, resilience and hope in Filipinos amidst the global economic crisis.
