MANILA, Philippines - Diether Ocampo was one with Pizza Hut and Taco Bell in collecting more than 4.5 million pesos for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to support school feeding programme in Mindanao.
The 4.5 million peso donation, which is 114 percent higher than the sum raised by the same campaign the previous year, was handed over by Ocampo and Philippine Pizza, Inc. Chief Operating Officer Lars Peterson to WFP Country Director and Representative Stephen Anderson, in an event held at Pizza Hut SM Araneta Center.
“I am truly happy to be a part of the Pizza Hut family and to be able to do what I can to help its cause. WFP is supporting the process of bringing children back to school after years of displacement and I wish for their continued success in their fight against hunger,” said Diether, who volunteered his services to the campaign.
Through the 60-day fundraising campaign, which ended on Dec. 31, 2010, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants in the Philippines received donations from customers in different ways.
