TACLOBAN CITY-The Riding Safety Advocate of the Philippines (RSAP) (Leyte Chapter) organized a charity program called ‘ride for a cause, around Eastern Visayas region’.
Ammabelle Dumdum, RSAP lady provincial Officer, led the search for beneficiaries in the region.
A background check is conducted among the beneficiaries of the program to determine if they are qualified, she said.
The group started their mission and advocacy two years ago to help people who are in need.
Since they started extending their aid-giving program, they already provided 30 beneficiaries, Dumdum, who is the brain behind the project, said.
The group practices act of voluntarism like donating goods, materials for housing, and clothing, and even cash.
On January 2023, they started their first charity program of the year called ride for a cause, “Bulig ha bag-o nga tuig”.
Among the beneficiaries of the group was a four-month-old baby from Barangay Sto. Domingo Dagami, Leyte, who is suffering from lung disease and needs an immediate operation.
RSAP shouldered the fee for the surgery of the baby.
