“Through God’s grace, we stay committed in serving the most vulnerable children. We pray that the World Vision virtual run will inspire many people to take an active role in helping others even in these complex times. Thanks to our ambassadors, and may all of us have a wonderful time running for children,” said Mr. Rommel Fuerte, World Vision National Director.
