Emilie Simon, International President-elect/Treasurer
Manila South, Philippines
"In the late 90s, I focused on the construction and completion of a building with a hall for the multi-handicapped in Morong, Rizal, Philippines. We were able to raise a grand total of 1 million Phil. Pesos to build that hall. Recently, Bernadeth Rivera, a polio survivor and one of the beneficiaries of the project I ran over 15 years ago in Morong, thanked me. She is now a Special Education teacher. It was a very humbling moment that I will always cherish."
