Philam Life and PFF Kick Off New Beginnings For Yolanda Survivors

Philam Paaralan Program

Nation-building through education and sports is an important aspect of society and advocacy, but it's not as simple and easy as it sounds. In light of this, Philam Life and the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) are working hand-in-hand to reconstruct schools affected by one of the country’s most disastrous storms on record, Typhoon Yolanda

To help rebuild the educational institutions of Samar, Leyte, and Iloilo, the Philippine Football Federation will dedicate USD 250,000 to build at least 11 new classrooms under the Philam Paaralan program of Philam Foundation Inc., the corporate social responsibility arm of Philam Life.

  • Carlo Lopez National High School of Iloilo

PFF-Philam Life Football Festival

Aside from their projects which focus on rehabilitation and reconstruction, the PFF and Philam Life also recognize the value of community and teamwork. They are currently organizing the first ever PFF-Philam Life Football Festival to celebrate the irrepressible spirits of those who kept going despite incredible adversity.
