What a whirlwind this year has been. As many of your families have been through the ups and downs over this year. ANZA Manila certainly has too. Cancelling the ball was tough, but a necessity to keep the community safe, and juggling the support for our members and community with financial restrictions created some interesting challenges.
However, our dedicated executive committee along with our kind hearted members persevered and smashed the challenge to get our association to a good place and thankfully we end this year on a high. We were still able to provide ₱712,000 in donations to Roots of Health Charity, we were able to raise ₱45,000 with F45 for the Typhoon relief projects and delivered a truckload of presents to the Children’s Hospital in Quezon City. Thank you to everyone who donated!
I want to say a massive thank you to the past Executive committee members Kelly, Shelley, Chris and Kelly for all of your hard work and handing over the reigns to our energised new members Sonia, Lauren and myself as president. A special thank-you to Daisy, Belinda and Mark for their years of service and continued support for our members.
ANZA Manila is in a much better place financially and have been hosting many events which we have been so happy to see you joining.
If you have any ANZ friends or people who want to get involved, encourage them to register their membership. We have some great plans for 2021 and can’t wait to see you all in the new year.
Merry Christmas to you all and your families from myself and ANZA Manila.
