In the early morning of May 23, 2015 employees were geared up to experience another significant outreach program for the classroom cleaning and beautification of Cadulawan Elementary School in Minglanilla, Cebu.
Employees were ready to sweat it out and move that extra muscle to contribute to the school's BRIGADA ESKWELA theme which aimed to prepare the school facility for the opening of classes by June.
At the end of the activity, the classrooms were now ready for use and surely students will have the perfect ambiance for a more conducive area for learning.
While other employees traveled far south of Cebu province, Barili, the other group went to a near-by orphanage in Guadalupe, Christ for Asia, to celebrate an early Christmas gift giving for about 117 orphans.
Kids being kids love to play. During the program, they enthusiastically played the games in stored for them. Of course, the lucky game winners had the chance to receive rewarding prizes.
Last November 21, 2015, they were able to break free from their normal routine and they got to celebrate a simple Christmas party with us.
Before the activity was wrapped up, all kids were given gift packs as giveaways. Indeed, Christmas is for kids. For them, Christmas is magic and they deserved to see that magic even just for a day.
"It felt like de ja vu."
Last November 21, 2015, our employees once again visited the young hearts at Hospicio de San Jose.
It came much to our surprise that the grandpas and grandmas still remembered the very first encounter we had way back 2007 and that was like 8 years ago.
As they say, "It's sweeter the second time around" and indeed it was. Happiness filled the place, we saw them smile and laugh for every given performance.
Every time they get to receive visitors, they never wanted them to leave. For obvious reasons, we understood every single word that they said.
At the end of the day, it's not about when and why you left, it's about the friendship that you built and the memories you made.
