That we are not here alone and that we can count on a community who will be there to support us when we need it the most.” The outpour of support resulted in a total of 500 food packs to the AFP.
Whether you are at home or in the field, sama-sama tayong lahat. Kaya on behalf of STET-VIP and the rest of its mission partners, thank you for all the support that you have given us.
As for the event itself, a qualifying race was held with E-racers competing for the top position.
