Continuing its strong relationship with the Celtic FC Foundation, Dafabet has announced details of a joint initiative aiding Philippines-based charity, the Tuloy Foundation.
The initiative will build upon the strong collaboration between the club and its principal sponsor, it will see Celtic FC Foundation and Dafabet invest £20K in a feeding programme operating in the Tuloy Foundation’s target locales – it is anticipated that the initiative will feed 23 disadvantaged children in residential care for a year.
Speaking on Celtic FC Foundation’s commitment, Chief Executive, Tony Hamilton, commented: “A key objective for our organisation is reducing and alleviating poverty wherever we can. Throughout their time as club sponsors, Dafabet have been a major supporter of our work and this collaboration is another example of us pooling our resources to achieve a common good.
“It’s crucial that we as a Foundation continue to contribute and establish projects internationally, as well as concentrating on the north and east of Glasgow. Tackling poverty is at the forefront of our ideals as an organisation, and it’s equally important to our support that we help individuals in desperate need, wherever they are in the world.
“The need for this type of intervention is absolutely vital and, given the success of our past collaborations with the Tuloy Foundation, I have full confidence that this feeding project will go a long way for the children of Muntinlupa.”
Founded in 1993, the Tuloy Foundation seeks to empower marginalised and disadvantaged children living in extreme poverty, primarily working with children aged nine to 18-years-old, and uses a variety of caring, healing, and teaching techniques to help participants attain a stake in society.
This creates complex and systemic difficulties for children, typically leading to poverty, malnutrition, childhood illness and physical and mental underdevelopment.
John Cruces, Head of Marketing and Sponsorship, Dafabet, added: “We’re very proud to support the Tuloy Foundation, through this partnership with Celtic FC Foundation, as the work they do really does make a significant difference to thousands of children’s lives.
“A number of our staff have helped out and volunteered at the Tuloy Foundation for the last few years, so when this opportunity with Celtic FC Foundation arose, it was a natural reaction to think of the Tuloy Foundation and this feeding programme.
“As always we thank Celtic FC Foundation and the ongoing work they do in partnership with charities across the world, it’s our privilege to offer our support to both Foundations where we can and I’m sure over the next seven years we’ll continue to build on what already is a great relationship.”
