Nancy Binay explained that after returning to the SPCMB Law Firm in Makati as Adviser after June 30said her father might be doing some travelling to catch up with international ties. He is also thinking of devoting his time into running the JC Binay Foundation. Binay and his friends founded it in 2005 to conduct philanthropic and charitable projects within Makati City.
When Binay was elected as Vice President in 2010, the foundation expanded its projects nationwide in 2012. Binay himself is excited to continue manning the foundation since this is a way to still serve various communities that he advocated eversince his early stint as a human rights lawyer.
The JC Binay Foundation was also dragged into the corruption allegations against Binay for two years and that eventually affected his chances of becoming president. His former vice mayor Ernesto Mercado acted as witness to discredit him based on unfounded assumptions. JC Binay Foundation’s director and treasurer Edgardo Lacson was also implicated with the media propaganda that did not flourish up to this date – proving that those were just the enemies’ strategies of sabotaging his candidacy.
