Alagang Kapatid Foundation receives P2M donation from Taisho Pharmaceuticals
In time for Megastar Sharon Cuneta’s renewal of contract as endorser of TEMPRA for Kids, Taisho Pharmaceuticals (makers of TEMPRA for Kids) donated P2 million pesos to TV5’s Alagang Kapatid Foundation, Inc. (AKFI) to support its continuing rehabilitation and recovery projects in Yolanda-devastated areas in the country.
It can be recalled that in December 2013, when TV5 held a special telethon to raise funds for Alagang Kapatid Foundation’s calamity response to provinces devastated by typhoon Yolanda, the Megastar called on her TEMPRA family to donate much needed medicines for the typhoon survivors. Taisho Pharmaceuticals immediately responded to the call and sent 5,000 bottles of TEMPRA syrup, which were distributed by AKFI to various hospitals in Samar and Leyte. The Megastar herself donated a generous amount to AKFI, saying that she could not let down the Visayas (and Mindanao) who have been very supportive of her career since she started singing at age 12.
To date, AKFI has served 75, 965 families and 8, 388 individuals with food, non-food and, recently, shelter repair kits. For more information on AKFI, like the AKFI Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/
