Canadian Ambassador Visits Telus GK Village in Quezon City
[Date Created: October 17, 2014]

by Vangie Sesma


Canadian Ambassador to the Phils Neil Reeder (with wife Aireen and son Brian) and Telus International VP for Brand, Marketing & Culture Warren Tait (with Corporate Social Responsibility Manager Milette S. Belen) visited Telus GK Village 1 in Quezon City last October 16, 2014. They went around the village with GK Executive Director Luis Oquiñena and visited the families in their homes. Mr. & Mrs. Reeder were so impressed with what they saw: the beautiful houses, vegetation and landscaping, and most especially the warm welcome of the Kapitbahayan (GK residents) as well as the lively dance performance of the cute Sibol (pre-school) Kids.


Ambassador Neil Reeder’s first engagement with Gawad Kalinga was when he joined the Telus Day of Service with Gawad Kalinga last December 2013. They did the relief repacking in Quezon City for 1,000 families affected by Typhoon Yolanda in Leyte.



“Ambassador Neil Reeder of Canada (with his wife and son) and VP Warren Tait of Telus visits Telus GK Village. 

Very interesting conversation I had with the Ambassador. Not enough time so he invited me to give him a visit 

at the Embassy to discuss a possible partnership. I also invited him to visit the GK Enchanted Farm. 

Cheers to the residents and Team GK QC headed by Justine Cruz! Special thanks to Warren of Telus.”

 

– Luis Oquiñena, GK Executive Director
