Lim served as the National Executive Vice President of Eagles and the concurrent village chief of Barangay.
The induction and installation ceremonies were attended by the more than 8,000 members from all over the country. Others came from Australia, Taiwan and Italy.
Mayor Oscar Moreno, himself an Eagles member, is the guest of honor. Other well-known personalities who are TFOE-PE members attended as well.
Lim said he was glad that he was elected as the NP, a step higher from his former position in the Eagles.
He said: “I was happy to be elected as EVP, and I am happier that my fellow ‘kuyas’ have put their trust in me and elected me as the National President. With my presidency, we can continue to implement the Eagles’ programs and projects, mostly in our assistance to our less fortunate brothers and sisters.”
As the first Philippine-born fraternal socio-civic organization in the country, the members of the Eagles have been involved in extending help to the needy, especially to the victims of calamities, since it was founded in Quezon City in 1979.
During the onslaught of tropical storm Vinta last December and tropical depression Agaton on New Year’s Day, members and officers of the Eagles extended assistance to those affected by the flash floods in Northern Mindanao and other parts of the country.
Lim said TFOE-PE handed out bottles of water, used clothing and food to affected members and other members of the community who suffered from the most recent calamities, including the conflict in Marawi City.
He said TFOE-PE members, led by national officers under the leadership of NP Louie Ceniza, braved the war in Marawi just so the group could give assistance to evacuees and soldiers deployed there.
Lim said the Eagles were able to distribute more than 4,000 bottles of water and food packs (canned goods and biscuits) to the government troops assigned in Marawi.
“The help came from Eagles members from our regions nationwide. We did not mind the war there as long as we were able to help our brothers and sisters,” he added.
The TFOE-PE also gave out assistance in the form of cash, used clothing and food to members of the 16 Eagles clubs in Marawi.
Aside from that, TFOE-PE is also involved in such socio-civic endeavors as tree planting, adopt-a-forest, “Brigada Eskwela,” medical mission, Operation “Tuli,” blood donation drive, among others.
These activities are in line with the Eagles’ motto of “Service Through Strong Brotherhood.”
“We will spend our time, money and effort just to help those who are in need,” Lim said, adding that he is also planning on fully developing the TFOE-PE database.
“We will work hard, we will fly and soar high for giving service to our fellow Filipinos, especially in times of calamities. We will make sure to help those in our communities, and in that we will make a big difference,” Lim said in a statement.
