MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has renewed the registration and license of the Kamanggagawa Foundation Incorporated (KFI).
DSWD has recognized KFI as one of its licensed foundations, and partners in providing aid and care to our compatriots in need, especially the poor.
The DSWD awarded KFI a certificate of registration and license for its continued support to the government’s good advocacies.
With this, the KFI can finally receive funds from DSWD and donations from international organizations or groups that it can use in bringing more aid to those in need.
“What’s important is that we are able to establish the legitimacy of organizations. We saw their capabilities and willingness to cooperate with the DSWD. As a partner of the DSWD, we can finally share our resources with them so they could help more Filipinos,” DSWD OIC Director USec. Emmanuel Leyco said.
The DSWD noted itis not easy for a charitable foundation to secure a license especially since it needs to undergo thorough screening of its qualifications and requirements.
The KFI, meanwhile, has expressed deep gratitude to the recognition and privilege it received from the DSWD.
“We are very happy and thankful to God because it proves that our goal is not only to help others but also to comply with the requests of the agencies of the government.”
“We are thankful to DSWD because it recognized our efforts to continue in helping those in need, not just those without shelters, but also those who are with disability, those who have been hit by calamities and others who are in need of help,” KFI Board of Trustee Bro. Danny Navales said.
The Kamangagawa Foundation Incorporated is a non- profit organization that aims to help and improve the lives of the poor, senior citizens, people suffering from illnesses, persons with disability, and orphaned Filipinos, through the leadership of Bro. Eli Soriano and Mr. Public Service Kuya Daniel Razon.
For now, the KFI is exerting more efforts in assisting and supporting various charitable activities of UNTV, like medical missions, feeding programs, and free college education, among others. – Joan Nano | UNTV News & Rescue
