Our Story

It is coming up to a year since we started Three Little Pandas. A lot has happened in that time - we've learnt lots of lessons and still have so much to learn. But in reflecting over the past year, I look at our children - the reason why we started this journey in the first place and I'm reminded of my mother when I was their age.

From as long as I can remember, my mother - Adelia Gwiazda (with the quiet but ever valuable support of her husband, my dad, Vincent), has always given back to her roots, never turned her back on where she came from. Whenever we would visit The Philippines, she would give back to her community off her own back in some way, shape or form. But eventually, this wouldn't be enough for her.

Mabuhay Foundation UK

About 10 years ago, she and her two friends Madelyn Richardson and Myrna Obligacion founded Mabuhay Foundation UK - a non-profit voluntary charity organisation with the vision of raising funds for various charities in The Philippines.

With close links to various Filipino community groups in the UK as well as the Filipino Embassy in London, much of the money is raised through organising Dinner & Dance evenings, sponsorships and monetary donations and goods.

The funds they raise are donated to underprivileged families in remote areas of the country, underfunded schools and churches, day care centres, orphanages, care homes as well as providing relief to typhoon victims.

In planning Three Little Pandas' first birthday and inspired by my mother's work, we thought it would be a great opportunity to get involved  and host a fundraiser on behalf of Mabuhay Foundation UK to contribute to the great work that they already do.

So!
