Apl.de.ap Foundation presents “Fashion Gala" to help premature Filipino babies
On Sunday, July 21, The Apl.de.ap Foundation in partnership with Mending Kids International will present “The Spring Collection” of Alan Del Rosario with a special appearance from the candidates of Binibining Pilipinas USA 2013 at SupperClub, in Los Angeles, California.
The Fashion Gala benefits the campaign for Filipino Children, a two- fold project of The Apl.de.ap Foundation in partnership with Mending Kids International, called “Apl of My Eye”.
The project will provide eye surgeries for premature Filipino babies, at least 30% of these premature babies develop retinopathy, a disease that causes abnormal blood vessel growth in the retina from excessive oxygenation. If the affliction is not diagnosed and treated within 48 hours of birth these premature babies become permanently blind.
“Heartstrings” is the other project, which will provide heart surgeries for Filipino children with life-threatening heart ailments. The Apl.de.ap Foundation.is focus on raising additional resources to make more of these heart surgeries available to disadvantaged children at the Philippine Heart Center.
