one of the top-of-mind pharma companies for health and wellness products and
manufacturing services, known for its unwavering passion for health and life,
shares in World Vision’s belief that every child deserves access to healthcare,
nutrition, and quality education.
Gerona from PascualLab’s manufacturing plant shares. “It
is emotionally rewarding. We feel so blessed that we are given a chance to
sponsor a child. We were created by God
for a mission,” Wife Almerlyn who also works for PascualLab affirms that one of
these missions is charity work: “It is a great feeling to be able to help
others”. As parents, they are also happy to show their kids the value of
education through Child Sponsorship.
Corporate social responsibility has always been a part of PascualLab’s values and the partnership with World Vision allows employees to live out this value.
“It is an honor for me to be a part of a company
that is able to hold on to its commitment for social responsibility despite the
pandemic,” testifies Juan dela Cruz (not his real name), one of the employees
of PascualLab’s subsidiary Leonie Agri Corp.
the pandemic has affected Chosen’s™ launch in early 2020, World Vision
was still able to help 255 children find sponsors. The Chosen™ Campaign created a venue
for PascualLab staff to help change the lives of children, even at the height
of the spread and challenges of COVID-19.
the pandemic broke out, it unveiled the great divide between rich and poor in
our country. Many have struggled and many are still struggling. Being able to
assist someone in our own little way could impact their lives more than we
could ever know,” Brithanie Urquico from PascualLab’s corporate office agrees. “I
am content and happy to be able to make a difference, especially now that even
the smallest of efforts truly counts,” she adds.
The partnership is also part of PascualLab’s 75th anniversary celebration, wherein the Pascual family and employees were inspired to share some #PascualLove by giving back and doing something meaningful for their hometown, Malabon. Through the partnership with World Vision, PascualLab’s employees experienced being chosen by children from the child-focused, assisted community in Malabon.
partnership was sealed in a Memorandum of Agreement signed last April, where 125
PascualLab employees committed to sponsoring children. This new and effective
way in child sponsorship through Chosen™ is not only transforming the
lives of the sponsored children but also of the sponsors.
