The "A Home for the Angels Foundation, Inc." recently received support under the Institutional Partnership Program (IPP) from the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).

Through the IPP, PCSO provides financial assistance to charitable institutions to meet the daily needs of their patients and residents, including food and medication.

September last year, PCSO General Manager Melquiades A. Robles presented a one million pesos (P1,000,000.00) check to the foundation located in San Andres, Bukid, Manila.

Established on February 14, 1995, by former Manila Mayor Lito Atienza and his wife, Ma. Evelina "Beng" Atienza, the foundation has been providing care to abandoned infants for twenty-nine (29) years.


Currently, the foundation cares for nineteen (19) children, aged one (1) to five (5) years old.

Emma Ruth Aguilar, the Foundation's Administrator, expressed gratitude for PCSO's assistance, emphasizing its significant impact on their operations.


“𝙉𝙖𝙥𝙖𝙠𝙖𝙡𝙖𝙠𝙞 𝙥𝙤 𝙣𝙜 𝙣𝙖𝙞𝙩𝙪𝙡𝙤𝙣𝙜 𝙣𝙜 𝙋𝘾𝙎𝙊 𝙨𝙖 𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙁𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣, 𝙨𝙖 𝙥𝙖𝙢𝙖𝙢𝙖𝙜𝙞𝙩𝙖𝙣 𝙥𝙤 𝙣𝙜 𝙙𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙨𝙮𝙤𝙣 𝙣𝙜 𝙋𝘾𝙎𝙊 𝙢𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙗𝙖𝙩𝙖 𝙖𝙣𝙜 𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙩𝙪𝙡𝙪𝙣𝙜𝙖𝙣.

Meanwhile, Beng Atienza, Executive Director of the Foundation, welcomed PCSO's visit and appreciated the organization's support, marking it as the first government aid they have received in nearly three decades.

“𝙄𝙣 𝙏𝙬𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙮 𝙉𝙞𝙣𝙚 (29) 𝙮𝙚𝙖𝙧𝙨 𝙚𝙭𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙚 𝙤𝙛 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙛𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣, 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙞𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙞𝙧𝙨𝙩 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚 𝙬𝙚 𝙧𝙚𝙘𝙚𝙞𝙫𝙚𝙙 𝙢𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙩𝙖𝙧𝙮 𝙙𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙖 𝙜𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙧𝙣𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙖𝙜𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙮. 𝙏𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙠 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙩𝙤 𝙋𝘾𝙎𝙊 𝙨𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙞𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙂𝙈 𝙈𝙚𝙡 𝙍𝙤𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙨. 𝙄 𝙖𝙢 𝙝𝙤𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙖 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙪𝙤𝙪𝙨 𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙥 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙜𝙤𝙤𝙙 𝙖𝙜𝙚𝙣𝙘𝙮. 𝙂𝙤𝙙 𝙗𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨 𝙋𝘾𝙎𝙊,” Atienza added.

The donation is expected to greatly benefit the shelter and its residents, fostering hopes for continued collaboration between the foundation and PCSO.
