The generosity of bilyonaryo William Gatchalian’s family is felt even by Filipinos overseas.

Valenzuela Rep. Wes Gatchalian recently turned over to Philippine diplomats in the United Arab Emirates the $10,000 donation of his family for the repair of Bahay Kalinga in Dubai.

Bahay Kalinga is the Philippine government-run halfway house for distressed Filipinos who are awaiting repatriation.

“Masaya po ako na ibalita sa inyo, na kahit ako po ay nasa labas ng Pilipinas, patuloy ang tulong at serbisyo para sa kapwa Pilipino,” Gatchalian said in a Facebook post.

Aside from the cash donation, Gatchalian also turned over appliances and household items that could be used for the upkeep of Bahay Kalinga.
