  DOMINIQUE LEMAY - Social worker, Founding president of Virlanie Foundation

Filed under: Jay-R's Journal — jayr - January 16, 2009 @ 12:01 am

With little knowledge of the language, culture, and the country in general, Dominique Lemay left France for the Philippines more than two decades ago with an assignment as a social worker… barely knowing that he would stay for a long term.

Five years from his arrival in the country, Dominique founded Virlanie Foundation, one of the country’s largest organization catering to street children and their families.
