Dear friends and donors,
In the aftermath of the strongest typhoon ever hiting the Philippines, we would probably find more and more children and their families living in the streets again. For those who luckily survived this calamity, the path to a brighter future is not already over ... warm thoughts to the filipino nation during that time of disaster suffering. We haven't forgotten you !
Since the beginning of this fundraising campaign that we started there was a little more than six months , with the help we have been given through GlobalGiving , this center and its children have been benefiting from many improvements . In addition to maintaining the activities that we have already implemented, your donations have helped to renovate and equip a dormitory which can now accommodate more healthily more or less twenty children (the youngest in priority) . We build colorful concrete beds and benches , made 9 twin bed size washable foam mattresses , put mosquitos screens and doors and finally repainted all the dorm in friendly colors coming along with a beautiful mural painting. That latters would surely give them more energy to develop theirs ideas to how to ponder their future. This dynamic support and active solidarity , thanks to the help of the City of Bacolod and local private partners , the center has been equipped with seven brand new showers and led lights in every rooms powered by panels solar . However, it remains further efforts and resources to be provided in order to complete the rehabilitation of the remaining damaged dormitories , especially the one for girls , and the creation of a kitchen and dining room. According to the future donations that we can raise , we would also like to allow a steady supply of hygiene and health items to the children, medical check-up and continue the educational and physical sports activities which will have undoubtedly a very positive impact on their behaviors and values acceptance.
In the coming weeks , our team of volunteers you would like to submit an ambitious rehabilitation of young adults in Bacolod thanks to vocational training rehabilitation through a French restaurant ... Willing to be part of this effort? Some of the SDC's children would be properly welcome in their adulthood because we will be able to provide them with a skill training and a job. Please do not hesitate to follow us on GlobalGiving website or on our dedicated blog.There will be not enough words and languages to tell our gratitude for your warm support to those children.
