Nasa Hong Kongngayon si KC Concepcion para dumalo sa Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), nagaganapin sa December 2 and 3. Kaninang 10 a.m., December 1, umalis si KC attinapos lang niya ang Artists Fair sa Mall of Asia kagabi.
Ang objective ng CGIis "to promote innovative solutions to addressing hunger and malnutrition inAsia, especially children." Bagay si KC dito dahil siya ang UN World FoodProgramme Philippines National Ambassador Against Hunger mula pa noong February2008.
Maaalalang pumuntana si KC sa Pikit, Cotabato at Lanao del Sur para sa World Food Programme.Nakukuwento ng singer-actress kung paano siya naaapektuhan sa mga nakikitangbata na walang makain at kung meron man ay kulang. Kung siya lang ang masusunodat kung may power lang daw siya, ayaw niyang may nakikitang bata na nagugutom.
Nang ma-interview ngABS-CBN News si KC, ito ang kanyang pahayag: "I am very excited to participatein the first CGI in Asia on behalf of WFP, and to urge concerted action toaddress the challege of hunger and under-nutrition in Asia."
Kasama ni KC nadumalo sa CGI si WFP Regional Director for Asia Tony Banburry. Mananawagan silang suporta "for nutritious food and life-saving support for children andvulnerable people, particularly those affected by conflict and natural disaster."
Kaugay nito, na-forward naman sa PEP(Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang text message ni KC sa manager niyang siShirley Kuan pagdating niya sa Hong Kong.
Sabi ni KC: "I am inHong Kong! I just registered at the Clinton Global Initiative booth, andreceived my very own CGI ID. This is the very first CGI event outside the U.S.and I am so grateful to be able to participate here. I was able to take a sneakpeek at the session hall which was still empty, but I'm sure, tomorrow it willbe packed with all 400 participants! I got my red program book containingmy schedule (designed for me by the UN WFP) and a welcome letter from BillClinton. Security seems to be really tough in the venue...
"I saw a few rooms called ‘whisper rooms' where you canhave personal meetings during our stay, and I begin to wonder who I'm going tomeet and have the chance to speak with here. I'm really excited to joindiscussions, brainstorming sessions with so many different leaders here (youngand old). Praise God for all there is to learn, see, and experience in thecoming days! Love you, Philippines!"Bagay ngang magka-love team sina KC at RichardGutierrez. Kung may WFP si KC, involved naman sa Greenpeace si Richard.
