In celebration of the 30th National Children’s Month in the Philippines, and in commemoration of World’s Children’s Day this November 20, the Hope in a Box-Romblon State University (HIAB-RSU) Chapter has successfully conducted its program held at Poctoy-Baito Elementary School last November 19.
Anchoring with the theme, “Kalusugan, Kaisipan at Kapakanan ng Bawat Bata Ating Tutukan,” the movement was made to support existing efforts to respond to the various needs of the least privileged communities especially the kids through providing services and distribution of school supplies.
Said program was implemented with a team composed of volunteers of faculty members and students in RSU, led by Ms. Abegail M. Recto, Team Leader of the movement.
Activities such as storytelling, making animal puppets and paper boats, coloring, feeding, and distributing of school supplies and slippers were made with the forty-five (45) daycare learners recipients.
Moreover, HIAB-RSU also provided lecture about Mental Health Awareness, led by Mrs. Charry Mayuga and Mrs. Ruth Mary Fallesgon, advisers of the team, to the parents of the learners.
Meanwhile, Mr. Ruel M. Visca, Founder of HIAB, expressed his utmost appreciation and gratitude to the movement. He described how blessed the community to have them as volunteers.
The said activity ended with a photo opportunity with the recipients, followed by Focus Group Discussion (FGD) among the volunteers.
