LDS Charities, TV5 Alagang Kapatid Provide Early Christmas to Lawin Survivors


The Cagayan State University–Andrews Campus was filled with cheers on 17 December 2016 as families affected by Typhoon Lawin (Haima) joined the “Paskong Kapatid” Christmas program of TV5 Alagang Kapatid  together with LDS Charities.



Mormon Helping Hands volunteers from Tuguegarao Stakes (dioceses) alongside the families spent the afternoon playing parlor games and celebrating the holiday season. Families were treated to Noche Buena gift packages provided by LDS Charities as well as from other companies at the conclusion of the program.
