- More people joined Feby Baguisa’s Ayuda Project in the UAE
- Emirates Loto pledged to provide her the resources to give out 10,000 more meals
- Feby also thanked the people who donated, helped, and supported her food drive
United Arab Emirates-based expat Feby Baguisa started her “Ayuda” (help) project in May when she saw her fellow Filipinos line up for a free meal during Ramadan. Despite being jobless herself, this didn’t stop her from extending help to those who are in need.
When her husband gave her their family’s monthly grocery allowance, she spent it all in a day to feed a lot of people in their area.
What started as an initiative to help the needy over the Eid holidays in May has turned into a daily affair and Feby’s friends helped with her food drive.
Because her heroic gestures to the society caught a lot of attention, a lot of people had been touched and more and more individuals and groups are joining her cause.
On her Facebook page, Feby thanked all of those who believed and supported her “Ayuda” project.
Feby got another big sponsor after Emirates Loto, the region’s first fatwa-approved, fully digital collectible scheme, announced that it will provide her the resources to give out 10,000 more meals.
In a feature on Gulf News, Paul Sebestyen, Emirates Loto’s CEO, said that Feby’s story resonated with all of them at the Emirates Loto.
“We knew that we had to support her initiative to ensure that it sustains and that those in need continue to be nourished every day. The world can use more Febys as she truly represents the best of us,” he added.
Recently, Feby also received Dh10,000 (approximately PHP 136,000) from popular Emirati social media star Khalid Al Ameri who is known for his daily videos about lif
e in the UAE.
