10:12:00 PM

This Christmas, GMA 7, Kapuso channel marks a whole new celebration of Christmas in a brighter way by their "Share the Love" Campaign.

GMA Kapuso Foundation continues its mission to help those in need through their "Share the Love" campaign. It's been over a year since Yolanda made a landfall in the Philippines and Tacloban is one of the most damaged city and many fatalities. 

Even though this is the scenario, we, Filipinos are known to be survivors and people from Tacloban continue to find ways in making their lives more meaningful by rebuilding their lives through the help of people around them.

On the anniversary of Yolanda, GMA Kapuso Foundation officially turned over 120 permanent concrete houses of Phase II and III of its Kapuso Village in Tacloban City to selected families ravaged by the super typhoon.

According to Ms. Mel Tiangco, president and COO of GMA Kapuso Foundation, “The foundation is the first NGO to turn over permanent concrete housing to Yolanda survivors in Tacloban City.”

A total of 172 houses were turned over since July 2014. An additional 231 houses will be ready for occupancy in the coming months, fulfilling in part the Foundations’ 403-unit concrete housing project in the area.

“For the Yolanda survivors, a year definitely will not suffice to alleviate the pain from the loss of family members and ruined homes. However, our commitment in rebuilding lives through this long term project will help regain the hope of many displaced residents,” 
She added.

Ms. Mel recounted that that her visit at Tacloban before when it was hit by Yolanda and after was her most memorable experience because she will never forget the aftermath of the storm to the area and to the people. 

The beneficiaries were emotional during the turnover as they recalled the height of the storm and what they went through. Even so, they were grateful for the outpouring of assistance they received from GMA Kapuso Foundation and its partners.

Through the generosity of numerous citizens all over the world, the project was able to come to fruition. Furthermore, GMA Network and its roster of stars showed the true meaning of the Kapuso spirit by participating in GMAKF’s Yolanda rehabilitation efforts.

This December, GMA launched its 2014 “Share the Love” Christmas campaign reminding its viewers that rebuilding lives entails a collaborative effort from generous hearts and passionate spirits.

GMA unveiled the campaign with an event plug featuring Mel Tiangco joined by Kapuso stars as they shared an early Christmas with the residents of the Kapuso Village in Tacloban.

Since its launch, over 100 Kapuso celebrities and News and Public Affairs personalities have shared the love by sponsoring food, toys, medical treatments and medicines for the Kapuso Foundation’s beneficiaries in the country, including other Yolanda-affected areas.

In addition to the housing project in Tacloban, GMAKF also pledged the construction of 24 new classrooms under its Kapuso School Development project within the Kapuso Village. Meanwhile, another Kapuso Village will soon rise in Palo, which includes 169 concrete houses and 10 classrooms.

GMAKF has also turned over 15 classrooms in Barangay Sulangan, Guiuan, Eastern Samar. Moreover, construction and rehabilitation is underway for 40 classrooms in Quinapondan, Eastern Samar and in Villaba and Kananga in Leyte.

Going beyond immediate disaster relief efforts, GMAKF is committed to utilizing its resources to create a lasting impact on the lives of their beneficiaries.
