If you are an Enrich Magazine reader you might find me on page 79 of this month’s issue — very miniscule in the background. Or you might not.

Earlier today, I received a surprise message from Rose Castillo of the Isabelita Rosueta Organization (IROG).

She texted me about our outreach program last October which was featured in the latest issue of Enrich Magazine.

The event — a relief operation for the ELDERLY of an indigenous community in Sitio Lawin, Barangay San Narciso, San Marcelino, Zambales — was organized by yours truly with the help of the altruistic, energetic Miss Rose and the guys of IROG, and as funded in part by the Central Board of Assessment Appeals.

All in the name of charity and — as usual, on the side — photography.

The project was a response to the call for public awareness on the plight of the IP elderly.

The magazine piece was created by Kevin Hamdorf and Bruce Curran (who, upon meeting, taught me how his last name should be pronounced: “koran”).

I’m blowing the horn not for our humble offering to the IPs of San Narciso, but for Miss Rose Castillo and the rest of IROG foundation. Maraming salamat sa inyo saan man nanggagaling ang lakas nyo.

It’s easier lending a hand, really.
