This includes the Rehabilitation Program for Typhoon Ruby Survivors in Eastern Samar, Tulong Kay Nanay, Research Project, MYNP-Radyo Balintataw text Tula, MYNP Hong kong Project for Overseas Filipino Working Mothers with Generika, Outreach Project, Soup Kitchen Project in different areas in Metro Manila, visits to the liberty-deprived women and mothers of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) and “Meeting of Nanays” where dozens of nanays from different communities shared their experiences with Ms. Nini Borja, MYNP Vice President; Ms. Bemz Benedito, MYNP Managing Director with the support of MS Sicat Construction and Nikon Tough Mama.
The MYNP book is still at the top as one of the bestselling publications.
