NHA Provident Fund receives P1-M at UNTV Cup Season 7
Posted on: March 20th, 2019
Since joining the League of Public Servants in 2014, the NHA Builders have been providing for their chosen charity.
The NHA Provident Fund was created in 1981 by the first general manager of NHA, Retired Major General Gaudencio Tobias. It was established as a way of providing support to the employees of the agency through loans and extending assistance to dependents of employees who passed away.
“It’s a big help to the members and to the members’ dependents. Malaking tulong talaga ito [It’s really a big help]. It became an additional working capital to our welfare fund because many of our employees are getting older,” NHA Provident Fund Chairperson Wilma Hernandez said.
“For Kuya Daniel and Bro. Eli, thank you very much. This tournament helps a lot to our provident fund and of course to our players. I wish that you will continue with this tournament. It is a worthy endeavor. We are looking forward to a continuing relationship with your team and our team also. Thank you very much,” Chairperson Wilma Hernandez added.
The players and coach were happy with what they achieved this season and promised to do better in the next season.
“Regardless sa mga challenges na pinagdaanan, maswerte kami pumasok kami sa Final 4. Pero yungmapanalunan namin yung 3rd place, this is one-step higher sa na-achieve namin last season (Regardless of the challenges we faced, we were lucky to be part of the Final 4 teams this season. But to win the 3rd place, this is one step higher from what we have achieved last season),” NHA Builders’ Chief-of-Staff Atty. John Christopher Mahamud said.
“Nakakatuwa dahil mado–doble namin yung maibibigay namin sa beneficiary namin — from P500,000 last season to P1,000,000 this season— sa Provident Fund (I feel happy because we will be able to double our grant to the NHA Provident Fund; from P500,000 last season to P1,000,000 this season), NHA Builders shooting guard Alvin Vitug said.
“We are one step higher ngayon di ba? Next year, season 8 gusto na namin lumaban sa championship. Hindi nanamin papakawalan ito (We are one step higher. Next year, season 8, we want to battle for the championship title. We will not miss the chance),” NHA Head Coach Silverio “Benett” Palad.
