Sonia T. Delen, Chair of The Campaign for Filipino Children



Selected as one of the 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the U.S. by the Filipina Women’s Network, Sonia Delen is probably best known for her business acumen and an unrivaled empathy for the many global causes that are privileged to have her as benefactor.

Sonia is a Senior Vice President for Bank of America Merril Lynch in San Francisco.

She is Executive Producer of the full-length documentary film, Harana, which chronicles one of the most-revered, Filipino traditions. She is also an entrepreneur and a community leader in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is also one of the founders of AcuGlobal Endeavors, the international trading and licensing company that specializes in the exchange of good and services with various Asian countries.

The appointment of Sonia Delen as Chairperson of this inaugural project of the The Campaign for Filipino Children is both strategic and very meaningful. Her business and social linkages are instrumental in garnering support for the project. As a matter of fact, Sonia’s longstanding relationship with Western Union played a key role in convincing the company to support the campaign as lead sponsor. But equally important, Sonia understands the challenges of the families of disabled children and specifically the concerns and issues that come with having a blind child. Sonia’s eldest son David is blind.
