Two of our members spent 3 weeks in The Philippines over Christmas 2017. They took with them solidarity greetings from our Canterbury group, together with a donation of 10,000 Philippine pesos (about £150) to support their work. Although their offices were closed for the holiday (Flipinos take Christmas VERY seriously, and decorations appear in the Shopping Malls in September!) , a locally-resident sister was bribed into presenting our tribute in January.
We received this lovely response: “Kindly extend AI Philippines’ gratitude to the members of AI UK Canterbury Group for the donation and for making the Philippines your focus country.”
