About BalaiKamay

Balai is a Filipino word, with Malay origin, that means house. It has been said that balai is also the root of balangai or barangay, the Filipino community— a group of homes living together harmoniously, where people are ready to share and help at all times.

BalaiKamay embodies the spirit of the Filipino community, working hand in hand to make the world a better place.
