It has come to our attention that a certain CECILLE VILLANUEVA – who claims to be connected with Caritas Philippines – has been asking for cash donations to offer housing for teachers and other charity works.  Furthermore, she claims that she is connected with Caritas Global.  We were also informed by one of her prospect victim (Masambong High School in Quezon City) that she has already been to two other schools: Roxas High School and San Bartolomeo High School – both in Quezon City – and was able to solicit for her above-mentioned projects, and even dropping the names of Fr. Tapiador and Bp. Tagle as persons she is connected to in her projects. 

In connection to this, we would like to inform the general public that CBCP-NASSA / Caritas Philippines has no such employee as CECILLE VILLANUEVA and that SHE IS NOT AT ALL CONNECTED WITH CARITAS PHILIPPINES.  Therefore, we are warning you to refuse any such solicitations she is doing in behalf of our good name, for your own safety and protection.  If ever our good office makes appeals and solicitations for our programs and emergency response, it is duly signed by the National Director and / or the Executive Secretary of our organization. 

For any doubts or queries regarding appeals/ solicitation related to NASSA/ Caritas Philippines, please feel free to contact our office at (02)527 4147.
