CARLO AND SHANE LIFE STORY

As COVID- 19 pandemic continues to spread, the future is so unpredictable. These are challenging times for all of us.  Regardless of the pandemic several children are in need of help for them to survive.

Shane, 1 year and 5 month old and her brother Carlo, 4 years and 8 months old is product of broken family and living in the bridge. The pandemic worsens their situation when their mother lost her job and emotionally deal with the abandonment of her common-law husband.  Carlo experienced physically abused by their biological mother.  This led the authorities to rescue the children to prevent further abuse since playing under the bridge and sidewalks, allegedly begging for food hampers their growth and development. They are also vulnerable and susceptible to any illnesses.

Prior to the referral of the two siblings at Tahanan ng Pagmamahal they were temporary sheltered in a mixed category of wards and older youth for about a month. Unfortunately, Shane was infected with Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) without the knowledge of the caregivers since she is asymptomatic. While the child is undergoing recovery, it was assessed that Shane and her brother are in need of special attention, love and care for them to enjoy their basic rights for shelter, clothing, medical needs.

Hence, on September 10, 2020 both of them were referred to Tahanan ng Pagmamahal Children’s Home, Inc.

While in Tahanan the children were provided with love, care and all their basic needs including immunization, vitamins, proper nutrition to boost their immune system. Both of them became healthier, happy and enjoyed playing with other children and protected from any form of abuse.

There is no joy that can equal the happiness in helping children seeing them actively smiling in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic. Together we stand; we can make a difference in this wonderful world even in the most difficult times

HELPING AIRAM TO SURVIVE

A story of God’s protection amidst the COVID-19 pandemic;

Airam was zero day old when she was found on July 26, 2020 in front of vacant house, wrapped with floral duster and placed in a carton box.

She was referred by City Social Welfare and Development to Tahanan ng Pagmamahal Children’s Home Inc. Upon admission the child was immediately referred to private hospital since most of the hospitals are full of COVID 19 patients, wherein she was diagnosed from Neonatal Pneumonia and Physical jaundice.  She was discharged after 7 days of confinement and treatment.

Currently, Airam is gaining weight and growing well. Her sweet smile shows that there is hope regardless of her negative past experienced and the current pandemic. Airam biological parents are no where to be found. 

Tahanan staff are trying their best to love, care and sustain her basic needs for her to continue growing well. Eventually become a effective citizen in our society. 

Giving hope to a childlike Airam is the best we can do in the midst of this Pandemic. Let’s join hand and make a difference in this word.

He also suffered from on Community Pneumonia and Pseudopterygium OU (on both eyes).   He was 5 months old when he was admitted at Tahanan ng Pagmamahal.

Ken grows up without the presence of his biological parents, but he was well loved and cared by the staff. His basic needs were provided with the help of other people with same goal for children like him. 

Ken is happy, sweet, smart, and smiling child. Unfortunately, he can’t see well due to eye problem. Ken’s face brightens and showed gratitude and more happiness when he was given pair of eyeglasses. The eyes are the window of the soul.

He gained self-confidence in running and playing well without hesitation and less worries from the staff since he can sees well. He also enjoyed watching, colouring and listening to stories.  

Giving hope to a child like Ken can make a difference in this world.
