MILLIONS in dollars in aid for development projects coming from overseas Filipinos have attracted Philippine non-government organizations, foundations, and Filipino groups abroad to converge for one-and-a-half days at a conference on philanthropy by overseas Filipinos.

'Good News for the Poor: A Conference on Filipino Diaspora Philanthropy' will be held at the University of Santo Tomas-Thomas Aquinas Research Conference (TARC) from June 9-10, according to a press statement. Participants will discuss how remittances geared for development initiatives can be harnessed strategically for the country's benefit."
