A generous person will prosper;
Whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

-Proverbs 11:25

My name is Lira Capco, from Blacktown NSW Chapter. Married for 12 years to my Husband Edwin. We joined CFC in 2013. We have been blessed with two wonderful boys. Our eldest is Liam now 10 years old and Lucas 4 years old. They are our inspiration to be the best that we can be every day.

Growing up, my parents had always taught us the importance of helping others no matter what the circumstances may be.  As my Papa would always say, any act of kindness will go a long way.  It doesn’t always necessarily mean giving money, it can be sharing our time, talents or just simply being nice can uplift others.  This is how we want to raise our kids as well  in an environment where sharing and caring happen.

I would pray to God to always show me the opportunity to help.  When I was asked to be the ANCOP Ambassador for our chapter, I said yes without thinking twice because I knew that this was the answer to my prayer. 

 I may not be the best person for this role, but I believe that with God’s grace, guidance, and all your support I will be an instrument to enrich the lives of our less fortunate brothers and sisters.  This is my way of giving back to the community for all the countless blessings that God has been showering me and my family.  I will forever be grateful for this opportunity. May God be praised!

I believe I’ve been called to share my blessings with those around us, particularly those in poverty stricken areas in developing countries.

This year I am honoured to be an ambassador to help raise funds and awareness for CFC ANCOP (Answering the Cry of the Poor) Australia and its cause. All proceeds will go towards sponsoring the education of underprivileged children in the Philippines, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands.
