Quezon City, Philippines – On May 18, 2017, Pediapharma Foundation Philippines, Inc. renewed its partnership with SOS Children’s Villages Philippines through continued scholarship support to selected children from five (5) SOS Children’s Villages. A memorandum of agreement was signed by Ms. Gemma Goliat, SOS National Director; and Mr. Romil Rayos del Sol, SOS Deputy National Director; together with Mrs. Michelle Zaldarriaga, Pediapharma Managing Director; and Ms. Lorna Domingo, Pediapharma Office Coordinator; at the Pediapharma Center in Quezon City.

The partnership between SOS Children Villages and Pediapharma started way back in 2014, and has been renewed annually since then. Overall, the company has helped send 60 children to school. These college scholars are beneficiaries of the Family-Based Care and Family Strengthening Programs of SOS, and are residing in our Children’s Villages of Bataan, Cebu, Iloilo, Lipa, and Manila.

SOS is truly grateful to Pediapharma for supporting Filipino children in need throughout the years, and for making their dream of a brighter future and a better life possible. As Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which one can use to change the world." Indeed, it is through good and quality education that children are better equipped with knowledge and skills to overcome life’s challenges and succeed in their chosen field of study.

Again, maraming salamat po for your continued support, Pediapharma Philippines Foundation!
