Bulacan to receive rice donation from Taiwan government

CITY OF MALOLOS – For the fourth time, representatives from Taiwan will visit the Province of Bulacan for the “Love from Taiwan” Rice Donation Ceremony which will be held at the Provincial Capitol Gymnasium in this city on August 7, 2015 at one o’clock in the afternoon.

The Taiwan Association of the Philippines and the World League for Freedom and Democracy (WLFD) will donate 4,000 sacks of rice weighing 10 kg each.

Bulacan Federation of Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association (BFJODA), Integrated Federation Tricycle Operators and Drivers Association of Bulacan (TODA), Persons with Disability (PWDs), some veterans, solo parents, senior citizens and the Dumagats are the target recipients of the donated rice.

According to Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado, for three consecutive years, the World Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce (WTCC) has donated rice to the province and he is overwhelmed that more and more organizations are encouraged to help in building a better community.

“Nakikita natin ang bunga ng magandang samahan, this rice donation has been continuous and it is a proof of a strong friendship. Nagpapasalamat tayo dahil ang bigas ay napakahalagang commodity na kailangan ng tao araw-araw at nararamdaman ng ating mga kaibigan ang pangangailangang ito kung kaya naman nagkukusa silang magbahagi ng pagmamahal sa Bulacan,” Alvarado said.

The WLFD President Eng. Chi Yao and Mr. Wayne Chi, chief executive officer of Wellcom Telecom Supermarket will also grace the event.

The Love from Taiwan was first distributed in March of 2012.
