Manila Mayor Alfredo S. Lim led in the launching of the commemorative stamps for the Philippine Che Yong Cua and Chua Family Association at the Manila Post Office. 

Lim congratulated these families for their concern and assistance to their fellow Filipinos in time of crisis such as earthquakes, fires and other natural calamities.

He also acknowledged their scholarship program for the children of poor families as a token of recognition for the hospitality of the Philippine government in allowing them to put up business in the country.

Lim asked them to continue promoting their civic consciousness programs to the less fortunate people, especially with the current global financial crisis, where a lot of Filipinos have lost their jobs and could hardly shoulder the increasing prices of some commodities.

Lim also congratulated the Cua and Chua Family Association for their friendship and camaraderie and asked them to work together as a whole to solve the everyday trials.  (
