The De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) Sports and Culture Directorate, in coordination with the Parents Educators Nurturing Cooperation and Integrity La Salle Lipa (PENCIL), Inc. initiated the “Laro Para Sa Marawi”, volleyball and basketball games for the benefit of Marawi victim casualties, Nov. 8 and 16, 2017, 12:00 PM at the Sentrum.
The said ‘games for a cause’ aim to help provide food, medicine and other supplies for the victims of war; to offer financial help to displaced families; to instill to the DLSL community the value of sharing and other social responsibilities; and to gain the trust and confidence of the Maranaos.
Athletes from the University of the Philippines High School, Adamson University, Lyceum of the Philippines University – Laguna, Maryhill College, and National University will be competing with DLSL and Pencil Inc.’s players.
The event’s proceeds will be directly forwarded (in cash or in kind) to De La Salle Philippines, who is working closely with La Salle Academy in Iligan. La Salle Academy has become one of the main areas of refuge for those fleeing from the conflict in Marawi.
