Lanao Children’s Foundation was founded by Dr. Giovanni Demillo Bontilao and his wife Mrs. Natala Catherine Ramsay Bontilao. The initial funding for the foundation was raised by organizing a fun run with a popular Filipino celebrity, Mr. Derek Ramsay, as its guest of honor.
The foundation aims to build an orphanage for abandoned children at Lanao del Norte, Mindanao, Philippines.
Once an orphan enters the orphanage house, the foundation will take care of nurturing the child’s needs, such as clothing, food and education. Bontilao Montessori Academy, Inc. (BMA) is an affiliate of the foundation, and will be in-charge of giving the orphans an education while they are in the orphanage. The foundation will aspire to have our orphans adopted into good families, locally or abroad.
Lanao Children’s Foundation is open to receiving donations, in kind or monetary, for the food, clothing, education, house maintenance and all the basic needs of our orphans in the future.
