The HERO Foundation launched HERO Donation Box in line with the celebration of the 115th Independence Day of the Philippines that gathered families of orphaned children of our hero soldiers who died and got injured during battles.
Since 1988, Help Educate and Rear Orphans (HERO) Foundation has provided educational help in the form of stipends to children of Filipino soldiers. HERO Foundation is encouraging everyone to support their advocacy by sending these children to school. To date, there are 936 total graduates in college that HERO Foundation has achieved.
More than 50 HERO Donation Boxes are to be deployed in all Ayala and Megaworld Malls. The unveiling of these donation boxes coincided with the presentation of the newest ambassadors, Filipino rock band Callalily, stage actor and director Audi Gemora, and stage actor and talent manager Carlo Orosa. They are now in the league of other ambassadors such as Iya Villania, 6Cyclemind, Nikki Gila, Billy Crawford, Ces Orena Drilon, to name a few.
Symbolic dog-tags are placed inside of each donation boxes. Jon-Jon Tambong, 7 years old and a HERO orphan, is the poster boy of the HERO Donation Box. His father was killed in action in 2005.
Also present during the unveiling were Jun Bisnar, Board of Trustee, HERO Foundation, Inc.; Michelle Chan, Director for Marketing and Resource Mobilization, HERO Foundation, Inc.
Master Sgt. Emiliano Hemongala, one of the faces of the many incapacitated in action soldiers, showed his damaged arm and amputated leg as a result of his dedication and heroism.
HERO Foundation was founded by the late President Corazon C. Aquino in collaboration with her then-administration’s Defense Secretary Renato De Villa.
