Maria Tonierose Gutierrez & Maria Cristina Masaya

These two boxes filled with clothes and school supplies came all the way from Italy and Japan. 

Malasakit knows no boundaries. Maria Tonierose Gutierrez of Italy and Maria Cristina Masaya of Japan organized a drive among their Italian, Japanese and Filipino friends pooled in clothes and school supplies to donate to the Mangyan children in the uplands of Mindoro. Salamat sa malasakit. An early Christmas gift to our Mangyan brothers.
