For Europe-based Filipino entrepreneurs, Maria Elizabeth Briton Famorcan and Chona Abietas Tenorio, believed that more have to be done to make sure that the 16 million votes that gave to President Rodrigo Duterte an overwhelming victory would make a difference in improving the lives of more than million Filipinos.
Famorcan, Duterte’s country campaign manager for Italy in the May 2016 elections, and tenoria, a lawyer, had formed a partnership to come up with the DU30 wines for a cause.
“Because of this, we decided to come up wih an idea of Duterte or DU30 Wines in his honor, in which part of the benefits will be donated to the livelihood or rehabilitation programs of the President,” Famorcan said.
“Everybody is excited over this project. We have invited President Duterte to grace the launch but his schedule is so tight. So, hopefully, other top government officials could come and represent the President.” She added.
She said they expect Duterte Supporters from different European countries to attend the DU30 Wines launch.
“A bottle of good wine, like a good act, shines ever in the retrospect. Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. This conviction inspired us to do something different to support PRRD and his livelihood program,” Famorcan said.
“So here comes the Du30 Wines and Cava, the most healthful and most hygienic of beverages made from a delicate and highly valued grape variety.”
“The concept was formed out of our love for country and the President because he is being bombarded by so many criticisms despite his efforts to make the Philippines a better nation again.”
“We know that many of our kababayan are still without job. I hope in our own little way, we can make a difference in helping our country with this kind of project,” She said.
She said 0.20 euros or PHP12 for every bottle sold will be allotted to any livelihood of rehabilitation program of Duterte.
