Beko Philippines, a global domestic appliance and consumer electronics brand, recently extended its support for St. Mary Euphrasia Integrated Development Foundation Inc.- Bukid Kabataan Center, located at Sitio de Fuego, San Francisco in General Trias City, Cavite.
The company donated two top-loading washing machines to assist the foundation, in line with the brand’s aim to provide the institution with more efficient laundry operations.
"Beko has always provided meaningful solutions that positively impacts communities. We saw the need to offer our assistance to the children of Bukid Kabataan Center, especially when we found out that they needed a better laundry area," said Melchor Zapata, Beko marketing director.
Bukid Kabataan Center is a foundation that helps at-risk children, especially girls ages seven to 15 years old. The center provides life-giving environment for its beneficiaries through a community that offers protection and fosters physical and psychological healing.
Since most of their beneficiaries are at-risk children, the center’s program and services include providing for their basic needs like food, shelter, and clothing. It also gives counseling and eco-therapy, as well as activities that foster socialization.
Education services are also given to the beneficiaries that are focused on building knowledge, fostering right attitudes, instilling of good values, and building capabilities, talents, and skills.
The foundation also conducts outreach efforts for the poor and vulnerable. Beko’s initiative aims to contribute to the advocacy of the Sisters of Good Shepherd, who dedicate their lives to support girls and women who need special care.
“Just like the Good Shepherd Sisters, we want these children to know that there are institutions, like Beko Philippines, who are willing to extend help, in any way that we can,” Zapata added.
Beko Philippines has already extended their support by giving top load washing machines for other foundations such as Don Bosco Pugad in Makati City, as well as Ating Familia Foundation and the House of Somang in Parañaque City.
The company also seeks to share its products to more foundations and organizations to contribute to creating a better and meaningful communities for the Filipinos.
