The youth is the hope of the nation!
In line with their Philosophy Performance Task led by Mrs. Lalaine L. Mañosca and Sir Jared Manalastas, Grade 12 students of Montessori De Sagrada Familia (MDSF) handed their help to assist in improving the lives of the orphans of Bethlehem House of Bread and at-risk citizens of Marawi, October 28.
Through this kind gesture, a sense of leadership and fulfilment was impressed upon the students for their gifts brought much joy and purpose to children in need. Most basic necessities in life were donated such as water, canned goods, milk, biscuits, diapers, clothes, blankets, medicines and personal hygiene related stuffs.
The donations for the orphans were handed to Mrs. Leila Fernando-Tolosa, Secretary of Bethlehem House of Bread while the charity for the people of Marawi were given to Mr. Tagumpay Cruz, head of NDRRMO Baliuag.
This event served as an eye opener. Seeing the children, playing with them and simply making them smile warmed my heart. They made me realize many things all at once. I believe that it is not us who gave out help, but instead, we were the ones that were helped, “uttered by Roanne Cruz when asked about her thoughts regarding their visit on the orphanage. The said project intends to awaken people.
