Ella Aglipay Delio, a Filipino based in New Orleans, chose to celebrate her recent birthday while under COVID-19 lockdown entertaining family and friends with a virtual jazz show. Guests gathered at an online meeting featuring New Orleans jazz artist Wendell Brunious. A portion of their gifts of support were allocated to NVC’s COVID-19 crisis response projects.
Ella’s birthday event raised enough funds to provide 60 families in Negros Occidental with The Feeding Force meal bags, containing enough vegetables, fish, rice, and Mingo Meals to put 5 full meals on a table for 5–tables that had of late been empty or sparse during these days of quarantine when very few people have access to work.
Happy birthday Ella! Your celebration continues.
