On a mission to spread hope, support, and smiles, the FBM Foundation marked a significant milestone in the past Saturday by turning its focus to the Villa Maria Aeta Resettlement Area in Porac, Pampanga. The Foundation organized the fifth action of its impactful “Bayanihan Para sa Kababayan” program in a heartwarming initiative dedicated to uplifting the local indigenous community with food, necessity kits and educational supplies.

Guided by Barangay’s Captain, Rogelio Valencia Jr., a passionate team of 20 FBM volunteers took upon an ambitious plan which included the distribution of 400 food packs, thoughtfully curated to include essential items such as rice, canned goods, noodles, and non-perishable goods.

A Feast of Support and Necessities

In a testament to their dedication, the FBM Foundation organized a heartwarming feeding program for the local indigenous community. This effort not only sought to nourish their bodies but also their spirits, as it was a true symbol of unity and care.

In addition to the food provisions, the Foundation went a step further by distributing an extra 400 packs containing necessity kits, proving that their care extends beyond immediate needs.


Nurturing Young Minds and Spaces

Understanding the value of education and child development, the FBM Foundation also extended its support to the local daycare center, catering to the growth of up to 40 children. The Foundation equipped the space with art materials, educational toys, an electric fan, a speaker, and a brand-new set of tables and chairs.

This comprehensive support aims to create a conducive and comfortable learning environment, fostering the growth of young minds and nurturing their instructors. In a touching gesture, the volunteers ensured the children had snacks, including biscuits and boxes of juice, further solidifying the sense of community and care.

A Legacy of Compassion and Community Building

In the spirit of ‘Bayanihan Para sa Kababayan’, the FBM Foundation’s mission in Porac, Pampanga, stands as a testament to their unwavering dedication to uplifting communities and spreading joy.

The FBM Foundation’s unyielding dedication, exemplified by these initiatives, reflects the organization’s passion and commitment. Their mission goes beyond mere charity; it sets a remarkable example of kindness that helps build a more welcoming, nurturing, and supportive community, not just for the Aeta community but for all the Champions of FBM Foundation.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo has chaired a limited meeting which discussed the efforts taken to eradicate online gambling in the country on Thursday 18 April, at Merdeka Palace in Jakarta. Minister for Communication and Information Technology Budi Arie Setiadi, in his press statement after the limited meeting, said that the Government will form a task force to counter online gambling.

“It has been decided that within a week, we will formulate measures to form an integrated task force in order to eradicate online gambling,” Budi said.

Minister for Communication and Information Technology mentioned that forming a cross-ministries/institutions task force is aimed to handle online gambling more thoroughly, collaboratively and efficiently.

“Gambling is an illegal act based on regulations. So, we need to impose measures effectively to settle it,” Budi stated, adding that his ministry will focus on handling online gambling websites and contents, while the law enforcement officers will enforce the law.

“Our authority is only to take down the websites, while the Financial Services Authority (OJK) blocks their financial accounts, and then followed by law enforcement officers, police officers, and the public prosecution service officers,” he remarked.

Similarly, OJK’s Chairperson of Commissioner Board Mahendra Siregar also highlighted the importance of holistic measures in eradicating online gambling in Indonesia.

“Some online gambling activities are not conducted in Indonesia, some are cross-borders, some do not use bank accounts, some needs to be tracked and traced through bank accounts, including transfers and so on. So, the next layers must also be addressed, and that way it leaves no empty rooms,” Mahendra explained.

Mahendra said that according to the institution’s authority, from the end of 2023 to March 2024, OJK has blocked around 5000 bank accounts that indicate its relation to online gambling.

“So far, we have cooperated closely with Communications and Information Technology Ministry. So, if we receive a list of bank accounts suspected to be used or are being used in online gambling activities, we immediately block them, and it has reached up to 5000 bank accounts,” Mahendra mentioned.
