Mingoy’s First Voyage Celebrates an 84th Birthday

Mingoy, NVC’s food shuttle, went on its first Mingo mission on February 19, 2019–two days after its inauguration. Its maiden voyage was sponsored by the loved ones of NVC member Nelia Jacinto, who was celebrating her 84th birthday. In Nelia’s honor, Mingoy drove up to Km 84 and reached Brgy. Biniquil, Kabankalan, where we distributed...

Happy birthday, Emma!

When Emma turned five recently, her parents requested support for NVC’s LoveBags 2019 project and LoveFits slippers instead of gifts. Because of this lovely gesture, 18 children from indigenous tribes will be carrying brand new backpacks filled with school supplies and sporting brand new slippers as they walk to school when classes open in June....

Eilidh celebrates her first birthday with gifts for NVC

While we were sleeping, a generous donation for Mingo Meals came in, immediately followed by another set of donations for LoveBags and LoveFits slippers. To celebrate Eilidh’s first birthday, her parents requested donations for these NVC projects instead of presents. We think that it’s not just a charming way to celebrate. It also gives little...

Antonski lives on

Anton Kilayko passed away in October 2019. Too early, because he was just over 40. But not too early to first make his mark in the hospitality industry and earn a large group of friends and admirers. And not before he could facilitate the donation of a Peter Project boat, along with feeding kids with...

LoveBags complete this wedding day

It comes as no surprise. With their combined backgrounds in education, development, and government service, it was an easy choice for Anton and Kathryn Taruc. Instead of sending their wedding guests home with keepsakes, this couple instead gifted 40 students from deprived families of indigenous tribes with LoveBags filled with school supplies.  Be blessed, Anton and...

Starting off their life together with Mingo Meals

Tradition calls for the bride and groom to gift their wedding sponsors with a keepsake, but Chicco and Ada are not doing this on their wedding day, December 8, 2018. Instead, for every godparent, they have enrolled one child in NVC Foundation’s Mingo Meals nutrition program. This unconventional choice will fill 22 hungry little stomachs...

Matty’s Mingo Party

It wasn’t quite like the kind of birthday parties that Matty would ordinarily have in his home in the USA, or the kind he would attend when he would come to visit relatives in the Philippines. That’s because Matty celebrated his 6th birthday with 50 kinder kids of lesser means in a public school in...
