Get ready for an exciting look back at the accomplishments of PATAS in 2022! The organization has had a successful year filled with growth and positive impact in the community. In this year in review, you’ll get to see all of the amazing things that happened and get a glimpse into what the future holds for PATAS.
One of the major highlights of the year was the growth of PATAS. With 25 chapters spread across the Philippines, including 8 in the National Capital Region, and particularly strong growth in the youth chapter and in the Davao area, PATAS continues to thrive and make an impact in the community.
In January of 2022, PATAS was able to make a difference in the lives of many through its Disaster Relief program. After a devastating super typhoon hit the Philippines, PATAS raised 56,844 pesos in donations and used the funds to serve approximately 500 families in Cebu and Southern Leyte. The organization’s Disaster Relief program in Maasin, Leyte and Camp Thaw, Cebu City helped around 250 and 200 families respectively. “Your generous donation helped us serve 500 families in need,” PATAS stated in their letter.
PATAS also made updates to its online presence in 2022, including a redesign of its website, the launch of the PATAS Kids YouTube channel and a dedicated blog site with sections on debate, humanism, philosophy, religion, and science. The organization also continued its weekly PATAS vlogs featuring Homar Murillo, Cesar Cariño, and Arfel Tayona. “We are proud to unveil our newly designed website, professional and user-friendly,” PATAS mentioned in their letter.
In December, PATAS held a Meet-up for a Cause event where it raised funds for a cancer patient through live music and ticket sales. “It was a heartwarming way to end the year and we are grateful to have been able to make a difference in someone’s life,” PATAS expressed in their letter.
As 2023 approaches, PATAS looks forward to continuing to grow and make a positive impact in the community. Thank you for being a part of this exciting year and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
