Today the 7th May 2016 the Alliance of Philippine Community Organisations Inc. known as APCO, and Fil –Oz Liverpool and Districts Inc. an affiliate of APCO donated $300 and $150 respectively, towards the Overseas Humanitarian Outreach Program a project of the Visayan Association of Australia Inc.

A team of Visayan members headed by Jhun Salazar will touch down in Manila, Philippines on midday the 9th May 2016 while elections for the new President is still continuing. However, the team is focussed on the mission and will continue en route to Cebu then Leyte where they conduct the outreach program. Members of the team include Annie Quebec (Mrs Visayas Australia Charity Queen 2015), Edna Voros (Founding President of VAA Inc.), Sarah Salazar (Director), Dian Ford (Director), Marilou Fietz and Jhun Salazar (former APCO Inc President and current VAA Inc President).

The team will also visit WAND Foundation to hand donation for Seeds of Hope project and will meet and greet VAA scholars at Eastern Visayas State University (EVSU) Ormoc Campus and the Visayas State University (VSU) at Baybay, Leyte.

The bulk of funds used for the project came from fund raising activities such as Mrs Visayas Australia and Charity Queen Beauty pageant. The crowned Charity Queen will be given opportunity to conduct the association’s Overseas Humanitarian Outreach Program to any part of the Visayas chosen by the winner. Anyone interested to join the pageant may contact any officers of the Visayan Association of Australia including its PRO Richard Ford.
