House of Commons Fundraiser Supports Upcoming Projects


London friends attended The John D.V. Salvador Foundation’s sixth fundraising event on November 29, 2012. JDVSF chair Lizelle Salvador welcomed 22 guests at the House of Commons for a highly successful evening.

The event was hosted by Amber Rudd, Member of Parliament for Hastings & Rye and personal secretary to the Chancellor of the Treasury. Also in attendance was Mr. Sajid Javid, Economic Secretary to the Treasury. After a personal tour through the House of Commons led by Mrs. Rudd and Mr. Javid, the party sat down for an enjoyable dinner and lively discussion on current political and social events.

In her welcome speech, Lizelle shared good news about progress made on the half-way house in Tondo. All structural work has just been completed and it will be inaugurated in June 2013.

The event raised more than £ 20’000, which is earmarked for the Girls Home, the foundation’s next project.
