This Christmas, John Savard, the owner of Bedrock Realty Advisors, spent the holidays with his family in the Philippines. While they were there they sponsored a Christmas lunch that fed 100 orphans, all of which are hungry children and families in need in the country. Below are some photos of the Savard family helping during the lunch.
Thank you to Missionaries of Charity (founded by Saint Theresa of Calcutta or better known as Mother Theresa), for making this possible.
Giving back is important to the Savard family and to the Bedrock team. Learn more about how Bedrock Realty has helped those in need around the world on our Community page.
John Savard, owner Bedrock Realty, recently paid a visit to Uganda, where he volunteered to help have a well built for the residents in the community.
Once operational, the well will supply fresh water to approximately 3,500 people. This will save these families from walking 6 km to fetch fresh water and save them about $30 USD per month. This is a large portion of their monthly expenses.
A huge thank you to the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) and its members Shane Benis and his father Ben Benis who created this project! We are more than pleased to have been able to assist in this incredible goal!
As many of you already know, we here at Bedrock Realty are very passionate supporters of the Antipolo Orphanage in the Philippines.
In December 2016, we travelled to the orphanage in Manila, where we helped feed 600 families in the city for Christmas. These people were the poorest of the poor in Manila, with many of the families struggling to eat and get even the basic necessities.
It was such a pleasure to be able to be there to help all these families. This is such a valuable charity that really makes a difference int eh lives of others.
