BAGUIO CITY – It is usually the small things that matter.
Even though Baguio Rep. Nicasio M. Aliping Jr. considers that a congressman’s job is to make relevant laws that will make life better for Filipinos everywhere but he also believes that it is just as important to be make an impact on individuals’ lives as much as possible.
Which is the reason why he has made educational assistance either higher or technical education a priority in his congressional work as well as the small help he can provide through the Baguio Congressman’s Social Responsibility Foundation Inc. (BCSRFI).
Through donations from BCSRFI has thus far provided immediate assistance for Baguio residents needing dialysis as well as donated eyeglasses to 775 persons from the barangays of the city. Another 126 more are now being made and will be ready for delivery to their intended beneficiaries soon.
The foundation also partnered with the Rotary Club of Baguio in the latter’s Limbs for less Limbs project and provided seven artificial limbs to their recipients.
“These are small ways the foundation has help the less fortunate in our society and we will continue to search for better ways to serve our constituents as much as we can and as many as we can” Rep. Aliping said as he explained that the foundation relies on donations and charity events to generate funds for its various missions.
One very demanding and costly is the provision of vehicular assistance to transport the sick or elderly and the deceased from Baguio to their home towns in the Cordillera or elsewhere in Luzon.
Transporting the deceased to their hometowns may appear to be very an ordinary service which should not require any help from anyone but when you take into consideration the amount of money funeral homes ask for this and you may understand why it is one of the more sought after service of the foundation.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who help the foundation through their donations or for joining the charity events organized to generate funds for the various services of the foundation. Again thank you the people of Baguio thank you.” Aliping added./Carl C. Taawan
