MORE Power Magical Christmas Joy to Ati Community

This holiday season, MORE Power embraced the spirit of giving by bringing Christmas smiles and festive cheer to the Ati community at Brgy. Lanit in Jaro, Iloilo City.

Amidst sweet smiles and bubbling excitement, MORE Power’s team engaged with the indigenous people, hosted games, and gave out prizes, making sure each individual felt the warmth of the season.

The highlight was when the Ati children penned their wishes, and MORE Power took it to heart. Each wish was fulfilled, thanks to the personal donation from every MORE Power employee and their children.

“MORE Power, thank you for everything,” expressed Maricris Villalosendo.

Another unforgettable moment for both children and parents was the visit of Jollibee.

“We are truly happy and grateful because we felt the Christmas spirit. Not only our children but also us adults, seeing Jollibee, whom we usually only see on TV. And we’re delighted that somehow, we got to eat what they call Jollibee,” said Marina Castin.

But it did not stop there. MORE Power’s commitment to the community shone bright with a check donation handed to the Ati Community’s tribal leader to support livelihood and community projects.

“We are very pleased because there are many places they could go, and they chose to come here and gave us gifts… This is a special gift; before they came, they asked the children about their wishes. The children spoke, and MORE Power actually bought those wishes,” according to the tribal leader, deeply moved by the thoughtful gestures.

The touching experience left a lasting impact on the residents, offering a moment of respite and support amidst their challenges.

“We chose the Ati tribe because there are many children here, who really need help. This year and the coming years, we plan to continue giving to various communities,” affirmed Sarah Diana Habacon, Human Capital Manager at MORE Power, showcasing their ongoing commitment to community welfare.

In the spirit of the season, MORE Power radiated the true essence of Christmas by spreading love, joy, and hope within the Aeta Community.

This marks the fourth year in which MORE Power conducts gift-giving to 10 selected charitable institutions to provide Christmas donations. And this year, one of them is the Ati Community in Lanit, Jaro.
