Addie SyCip Cukingnan dedicates art exhibit to World Vision
Small acts of kindness go a long way. In 1947, Chinese Filipino businessman John SyCip generously welcomed American pastor Bob Pierce in the Philippines. Not only did SyCip host Pierce’s stay in the country, he also provided financial help so that the pastor could travel and share the gospel in different places in the Philippines and in Asia.
Through SyCip’s support, Pierce’s travels led him to China, where his life-changing meeting with an orphaned girl eventually prompted him to be the founder of international Christian humanitarian organization World Vision. Today, World Vision is helping improve the lives of thousands of children in the Philippines, and millions more around the world.
On November 9, 2017, John SyCip’s daughter, Addie SyCip Cukingnan, continues her father’s act of kindness and generosity with “Addie for Children,” an art exhibit dedicated to World Vision. The exhibit will showcase 80 of Addie’s masterpieces; the proceeds of which will be donated to help World Vision-supported children in the Philippines.
The “Addie for Children” art exhibit for a cause will be showcased at the SM Megamall Art Center from November 9 to November 21. World Vision/October 23, 2017
