The Open Heart Foundation Worldwide, Inc. (OHFWI) conducts its regular monitoring in Sibuyan Romblon last April 10 – 11, 2019 now with, our partner and benefactor Rick and Mely Rey Foundation (RMRF) and together with two of our board members. Through the generosity of our benefactor, OHFWI opens 30 new slots for the deserving students who will enter college. The slots opened to the students of Romblon State University – San Fernando Campus and Lumbang East National High School. A total of 37 students will be supported in their college studies through Children and Youth Development Program.
Another highlight of the visit is the turnover of the donation to Lumbang East National High School. Rick and Mely Rey Foundation donated a cash for the completion of the school’s building that will accommodate senior high school students. Lumbang National High School is located in the middle of the mountains which caters hundreds of students so that they will no longer go to the municipality centre for their schooling. As Ms. Repiso, Principal of Lumbang East National High School, said that RMRF’s donation that was coursed through OHFWI is one of the great moves in the completion of their school project.
