Robinsons Supermarket and Unilever Philippines Give ‘Bags of Hope’ to World Vision Kids

Posted on May 30 2016 - 8:30am by Lanie

Nearly one-third of Filipino children are deprived of health care, safe water, clean toilet facilities, decent shelter, nutritious food and education. And almost 4-million Filipino children are classified as out-of-school youth. Numerous reasons contributed to this prevalent problem like insufficient family income, child labor, teen marriage, illness, disability, inaccessibility to schools and high cost of education. Consequently, these factors inhibit the proper learning, development and value information of a child.

Bags of Hope JPGWith this, Robinsons Supermarket, Unilever Philippines and World Vision united together and launched the “Bags of Hope” campaign – which aims to help World Vision Kids with their education and their future.

One may be a committed donor through buying the Bags of Hope pack. One can choose from purchasing 470ml Lady’s Choice Mayonnaise, Ham or Bacon spreads. Purchase will automatically entitle one to receive a “collectible school bag” which comes in four designs while concurrently giving out school supplies as donations for World Vision Kids to support their education.

BoH press releaseLet us intervene and protect the children from further harm. Let us take them away from the streets, dumpsites, quarries, farmlands and construction sites. Let us bring them back to school. And let us all share the Bags of Hope to give a child a chance in life.

    It is good to know that there are more groups who are willing to help kids. Bags of Hope is a nice project, but my son always supports the NBS Project Aral Kit for P25 only.

    It’s nice that we’re able to help the WV Kids in this simple way. I, too, am sponsoring a child in WV and it really feels good to know that I’m able to help in that simple gesture 🙂

    As much as we can, we try to support this kind of act and other CSR programs as its the only way we could give much as of the moment. My husband and I dream of having a house for street kids where they could sleep and eat for the night. Perhaps in the future we could have that dream.

    We’re Lady’s Choice mayo users. I’ll check this out the next time I buy mayo. 🙂 Helping the less fortunate is really a great endeavor that hopefully all big companies do.

    That’s good to know that there are groups that also support this kind of work. Helping the less fortunate especially the kids gives hope to the future of our nation and the world. I will take note of this so I can grab a Lady’s Choice product next time.
