All our brethren from kids, youth, singles, handmaids/servants of the Lord and couples were one heart and mind – to support ANCOP and its programs for the poor and the homeless.

The walk event continued to bring together an incredible community of people, families, friends, supporters, donors, sponsors who want to show their support and the opportunity to join together in making a difference.

Even the chilly morning and hazy weather condition, was not an obstacle for the ANCOP Walk event.
