Filo-Aussie migrant  Ms. Salubre , a breast cancer survivor herself was born and raised in Bunga, Leyte now determined to help back her Haiyan ravaged kababayans by restoring both schools and has done feeding to over 1,000 high school, elementary kindergarten children and faculty.

Students and faculty shared the 50 kilos of lechon viand with rice and veges with orange juice, noodles, bread as a cheerful treat on top of the donation during her visit.

Terminally ill breast cancer patient Ms. Tiglao  and bone cancer patient daughter Abigail, also received over $1,700 worth of medical supplements from Nu Skin specialists Maximo and Espie Bables’ charity dinner-dance at Pabico Club 55 recently, and a $75 part proceed from Jasmine Henry’s concert  as response from Filipino Community (FILCOM) cancer support and awareness.

“My next project is to launch the Mrs. Australasia Official event on 24th October 2015 this year, while simultaneously celebrating my 40th Birthday Party at The Swissotel Sydney which will be launched at the Sydney Swissotel on Saturday 24th October 2015, Ms. Salubre plans.

“The proceeds of which will also raise funds for three very worthy charities:  proceeds goes to school to build the room this time for the BNH School-kindergarten education in Leyte Philippines, Cancer Support and Awareness and RPAH’s Department of Neuropathology and the Molecular Neuropathology Research Program (BRAINSTRORM Research) of the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Centre at RPAH Camperdown, Ms. Salubre added.

Background info : 

This Beauty Pageant is a multicultural beauty pageant that empowers mature aged women from diverse backgrounds who are encouraged to raise funds and awareness of charities and those less fortunate than ourselves.

In 2006,  Ms. Salubre established a business called Salubre Models International and  now conducts and sponsors the Miss Australasia Official Beauty Pageant, which will be an annual event that commenced last on 6th June 2015 at the Sydney Hilton and she intends to progress to international events to be convened in the Philippines, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka and Japan.

“The third charity – Brainstorm has affected my friend Mellessa Raymond which has given her first-hand knowledge of the trials and tribulations of brain tumours which is a major issue in Australia and receives very little funding from the Federal government. We need to raise awareness and also contribute to organisations that save lives every day. Brain cancer is the biggest killer of children in Australia.”
