Our high school batch has generated an amount of money enough to donate school shoes, socks and umbrellas this month just in time for the school opening.
We went there first to check on what they need, had a small salo-salo and bond with them. Then, we went back the following week with the school stuff with us already. These are children who were physically and sexually abused, age 2-17 years old.
A couple of them are siblings who were literally abandoned at the doorstep of the Center.
I really feel sorry for them. Two of the girls are just my youngest’s age and I can’t imagine they have been through a traumatic experience.
Here’s hoping that these pairs of shoes will help them reach their goals and dreams. Our batch has decided to continuously visit, support and check on them regularly. We plan to donate foam mattresses in the next quarter to make sure each one of them gets a peaceful sleep.
