A fund drive will also be done during this event to help out the beleaguered family of Mayda Clarin. Mayda was a nurse in the Philippines and worked here as a carer at Upper Hutt. She was diagnosed with breast cancer and was confined at the Wellington Hospital. She passed away about a week ago. With a visitor’s visa issued by the immigration, the grieving husband with the three small kids has no other means of livelihood. With our support in this distressing time, we know we can help him cope the very rough journey. I personally appeal to you all please give generously. Any form of help means so much for them.

There will be a box to be placed at the venue where you can drop any amount you can to help the family. You may also deposit your donation at:

Kasagip Charitable Trust
Kiwi Bank
38-9009-0649421- 03
