World Chefs Without Borders Philippines relief

The natural disaster that hit the Philippines last November did not leave anybody indifferent. Moreover, the World Association of Chefs Societies (WORLDCHEFS) has put all its efforts to collect funds for the endangered households, engage Young Chefs to organize charity events and to inspire other member countries to make their contribution.

 

A significant helping hand came from the World Chefs Without Borders that went the extra mile and achieved tremendous results in their latest humanitarian action. World Chefs Without Borders, which represents Chefs Associations from 17 countries around the globe and is the official humanitarian department of WORLDCHEFS, donated charity funds to help rebuilding the communities affected by Yolanda wake in the Philippines. The humanitarian action was named “Roof For Relief” and engaged 5.020 households in 11 Barangays in Northern Cebu in the Philippines.

 

The total amount of money that was collected was 14.619,77 Euros + 7.969,60 USD and 250.000 Peso, which came from the Philippine Chefs Association. 


 

An additional donation made by Singapore Young Chefs Club, who sold charity cookies for 5.800 USD, and Penang Chefs charity gala dinner, which collected 3.444 USD, will be as well used as humanitarian aid for the Philippines typhoon recovery.

 

WORLDCHEFS congratulate World Chefs Without Borders for such a noble act and thank Willment Leong, the Committee Chairman for World Chefs Without Borders, for putting his heart and soul into this project and inviting others to join this momentous trip!
