Z Pavanoo Zumba and Fitness Team in cooperation with several sponsors, organized Friday morning the ‘Donate a blanket’, a charity Zumba held in the Judo Hall of Qadsia Gym in Hawally. The charity Zumba event had a full house of attendees and fulfilled its intention of collecting used and new blankets to be donated to women currently in jail. Fourteen volunteer trainers from different gyms came forward to offer their services for the event.

Among the instructors who volunteered to teach included: Sarah Jane berbano, Kimberly Anne Kiocho, Melva Laborte, Ma. Theresa Arabe, Sherlyn Casul, Mary Grace Salgon, Catherine Briones, Janseen Idano, Jasper Boquilon, Nympha Luat, Frances Guzman, Marife Ga, Leonardo Capiendo Jr. and Jennina Tongco.

GMA 7 News Correspondent of Kuwait and Journalist of The Times News Ricky Laxa led the group to a warm up session prior to the Zumba routines presented by trainers. Participants to the charity event brought new and old blankets that were displayed in one area of the hall.

Donated blankets were later collected by representatives from Philippine Overseas Labor Office and OWWA to be delivered to the shelter.

Edelyn Lucban, leader of ZPavanoo Group extended her gratitude to everyone who came and donated blankets. Ms. Jaja of Nanay Eden Restaurant also thanked local and foreign individuals who came forward and handed over blankets for the charity event.

“We would like to thank Ricky Laxa for spearheading this project on its second year and bringing these generous people together and donating blankets for our women in jail. Cold season is fast approaching and these blankets can help keep them warm,” stated Nestor Burayag, Welfare Officer of OWWA and POLO.
