Wong Chu King Foundation (WCKF), the corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm of Mighty Corporation or Mighty Corp, was commended by the the Roman Catholic prelate of La Union for giving top priority to apostolic work and Catholic education in its programs and projects.
San Fernando City Bishop Rodolfo Beltran Wong expressed gratitude and praises to WCKF which has donated to church projects and funded the education of poor students in Lagawe, Bontoc including four seminarians.
In an issued statement, Beltran said, “The parents of these students are low-income farmers producing only for local consumption. You can imagine the positive impact this kind of support has for them.”
It was also reported that through WCKF’s effort and initiatives, renovation works was done to the Basilica Minore of Our Lady of Piat Church in Piat, Cagayan in 2012 and the Diocesan Shrine of Immaculate Conception in Naic, Cavite last year.
The foundation was created by Mighty Corp in 1990 with the aim of perpetuating the memory of Wong Chu King, the family patriarch, a philanthropist known for his generosity to the poor. WCKF’s thrusts include scholarship programs and raising funds for charitable causes.
Tuguegarao City Archbishop Emeritus Diosdado Talamayan echoed the same praises to WCKF and said, “I have personally known Mrs. Nelia Wong Chu King, WCKF chairman of the board of trustees. She and her family are great devotees of Our Lady of Piat. They have erected a chapel in Malolos City, Bulacan, dedicated to Our Lady of Piat, which was blessed by many Bishops led by Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales in 2012.”
