The Filipino Achievers of Canada (FAC), an organization dedicated to charitable endeavors and service for the less fortunate in the Philippines, has orchestrated a remarkable humanitarian effort.

The concerted efforts of FAC, in collaboration with the Provincial Government of South Cotabato, spearheaded by Honorable Governor Reynaldo Sucayan Tamayo Jr., have made this substantial contribution possible. The coordination also involved former NAPC Secretary and Lead Convenor Atty. Noel Kinazo Felongco and NAPC R12 Focal Person Mr. Andy Orobia.

The turnover ceremony took place on Monday, January 15, 2024 at the Provincial Capitol in City of Koronadal attended by Ms. Coutts' siblings Lorlie Laraya Abada, Jojo, and Francis Laraya.

Dr. Mila G. Quinton, Head of Norala District Hospital, joined Governor Reynaldo S. Tamayo Jr., Vice Governor Arthur Y. Pingoy Jr., and members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan during the ceremony.

Governor Tamayo, in his Facebook post, extended his deepest gratitude to the Filipino Achievers of Canada and Mr. & Mrs. Coutts for their for their invaluable contribution to the well-being of the community.
