Christmas is a tradition of sharing – sharing love, hope, joy and light. For many companies and organizations, big or small, sharing their blessings to underserved sectors during this time of the year has been a tradition that adds color and light to relive the Spirit of the Holidays. This tradition has provided an avenue to Vendiz Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (VPI) founder, Mr. Juvencio “Ven” Dizon, to create a legacy for his company to continue over the years.
Driven by its mission to improve the lives of the Filipino people through continuous innovation, quality products, and cost-effective prices, VPI extended this objective through corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs that reach out to non-government institutions catering to the special needs of our people. This year, VPI continues Mr. Ven’s Legacy by extending assistance to not just one but four organizations this Christmas.
Gift of Love to Our Lady of Pentecost Parish
Giving the gift of love, last November 18, Vendiz Pharmaceuticals, Inc. revisited Our Lady of Pentecost Parish in Loyola Heights, Quezon City to turn over their year-end donation that will provide support to 80 students of the Parish’s scholarship program. Parish Priest, Fr. Dodot Torres, received the monetary donation along with some other medicines from VPI representatives.
“VPI has been supporting the activities of the parish through regular donations in the past years – even before the pandemic struck the country. This year, we revisit this parish, along with three other non- government organizations, as a symbol of our devotion and support to their programs that aims to uplift the lives of our kababayans. We hope that these contributions from our management and people will be a great help in pursuing their goals and aspirations in life,” Philip C. Dizon, President & CEO – Vendiz Pharmaceuticals Inc.
Casting hope to 400 youth of Tulay ng Kabataan (TNK) in Diliman, Quezon City, VPI representatives tuned over monetary donation, vitamins and medicines to TNK Secretary, Ms. Grace de Vera last November 18. This donation aims to support the education, nutrition and health protection of the children under TNK’s care.
Tulay ng Kabataan is a non-profit organization founded on May 15, 1998 by a French Jesuit Priest. Executive Fr. Matthieu Dauchez and Ms. Gloria Recio oversee the daily operation of the organization along with multi-disciplinary volunteers from the local community.

Spreading Joy at Children’s Joy Foundation, Inc.
With children being the center of the Christmas Season, VPI also extended assistance to the wonderful kids of Children’s Joy Foundation, Inc. (CJFI), which care facility is located in Project 8, Quezon City. VPI chose to aid CJFI to support its commitment of fulfilling the mission of love and compassion for the neglected and under privilege children in the Philippines.
