Outreach Initiatives and Partnerships for Manila Slum Program
Last May, Tim, a senior manager of Unionbank, initiated an outreach for the beneficiaries of our Manila Slum Program. His group helped us encourage the children to go to school. Tim’s influence in the company grows as more branches of Unionbank reach out to us because they also want to help.
Recently, the Quezon City group of Unionbank also conducted activities for the children not only about going to school but also taught the children about proper hygiene. They gave away rice, eggs, hygiene kits, and lunch meals, that our beneficiaries really enjoyed. Indeed, such a treat for them.
We continue to work with Honor 1000, to strategize steps and actions to ensure that the children will go back to school, efforts from other companies or volunteers definitely help us have a stronger presence in the lives of these children. We believe that these short reminders from our volunteers coupled with our sustainable commitment to Ronas Garden families really do save Filipino children from abuse and exploitation.
