Helping lead better lives
During the birthday celebration, Pinky shows no signs of exhaustion. She remains energetic in conversing with different people, even joining them in dancing. This dedication of Pinky stems from her appreciation of life, especially after her grandmother’s death. “When she passed away in 1994, I started Pinky Cares Foundation. I took it upon myself and committed to continue to take care of the abandoned lolos and lolas,” Pinky shares.
Pinky also celebrates the beauty of life that she helps out people who have a life-threatening disease. Through her Qualibet Testing Services, people can check for any impurities and the potency of pharmaceutical drugs. She explains, “We help Filipinos be assured that the products that they consume, or the feeds that our animals eat, are free from contaminants, steroids, or impurities—all of which may be carcinogenic for humans.”
