A Wednesday of Wins! (Part 1) - Alay Kalusugan: Feeding Program Launch

November 23, 2016, Wednesday -- Parents, teachers, and administrators from Epifanio De Los Santos Elementary School and our club came together to launch the 12th Alay Kalusugan Supplemental Feeding Program held in EDSES Campus in Tramo, Pasay.

For our Alay Kalusugan Program, we work with Kabisig sa Kalahi Foundation to provide meals for children in need for 120 days of the school year to help them become effective at school work and their student lives in general. The foundation works with DTI's Council for National Competitiveness as well as Mead Johnson (for milk, Lactum) and Unilever.

In this program, we provide hot meals in schools as well as work with the mothers and help them prepare nutritious meals at home This year, our beneficiary is Epifanio De Los Santos High School where a lot of kids come from urban poor families. By doing so, the lives of both the kids and their families are uplifted.

We were deeply moved as the children sang for us a beautiful thank you song “Salamat dahil sa inyo, maginhawa ang aming Pasko...” (Thanks to you our Christmas is well).

This wonderful beginning was made possible by everyone's generosity. Thank you to all our clubmates for funding the project, for finding ways and means, and for allocating their time and talent to support this and all our Community Service efforts.

Special thanks to our project head and Past President Joji Tan for 12 amazing years of hard work for our nation’s children!
