#ShareTheLove, The GMA Christmas Station ID

 Thursday, November 6, 2014 | 12:12am


From a year of loss to a year of hope, GMA Network rekindles the Christmas spirit in the hearts of Yolanda survivors with an outpouring of love that gives them a wonderful new beginning.

This year, Christmas came early to the Kapuso Village in Tacloban as the Network held a salu-salo for beneficiaries who will soon celebrate the Yuletide season in newly-built homes they can call their own. The Kapuso Village in Tacloban is the first permanent housing project in the area for survivors of Typhoon Yolanda, with 49 houses ready for occupancy. By next week, an additional 123 houses will be ready, and in the coming months, 231 more houses will be turned over to their new owners.

“It was likely the first time that these families got to celebrate Christmas since they lost their homes and loved ones to Typhoon Yolanda in November of last year,” said GMA Kapuso Foundation EVP and COO Mel C. Tiangco, who stood witness to the tragedy that the victims suffered with her on-site news coverage of Yolanda’s devastation and GMA Kapuso Foundation’s relief efforts. “Seeing their favorite Kapuso stars make an effort to personally deliver their presents made the occasion all the more special to them.”

In Tacloban, Mel Tiangco was joined by Kapuso stars in handing out food, toys, and Christmas trees to the families in the Kapuso Village.

While in Manila, even more Kapuso personalities shared their love by sponsoring food, toys, treatments and medicines for Kapuso Foundation beneficiaries all over the Philippines, including other Yolanda-affected areas.

Truly, the rebuilding of lives takes a collaborative effort among hearts sharing the same passion and love for others.
