The Coory and the Bactong Families Meet

Last October 31, TF donors Damian and Lisa Coory visited St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City (SFAS) and met their scholar, CJ. The Coory's used to sponsor the Bactong brothers, CJ and Casey, when they were in grade school, as their mother taught in SFAS. The Bactong brothers transferred to another school when their mother left SFAS to teach in the public school. Their father joined the SFAS faculty last school year and upon CJ's request, he transferred back to SFAS as 10th grade scholar with the Coory's support once again.

For the first time, Maezy, a TF scholar, was able to celebrate her 5th birthday with a cake and balloons last October 28, 2016.  All from the generosity of her TF sponsor, Rina Yan.  The family feasted with pork barbeque, sotanghon noodles with vegetables and fried chicken!  And of course, she received dolls and a kitchen set as gifts.
