The sponsored children from the recently launched CDP in Sitio Bakal, Bagong Silangan have received medical check-up and school supplies distribution through GNIP. The activities kicked-off with an opening program. The Country Director of Good Neighbors International Philippines, Daehyun Kim, delivered a message emphasizing on the importance of partnership especially with the community. Xia Vigor, our celebrity volunteer, followed suit where she inspired the children to keep and hold on with their dreams – that their dreams will be their passport in having a successful life in the future.
The rights of the children were discussed and proper hand washing was demonstrated. Subsequently, the medical check-up gave the children opportune time to undergo medical consultations and were provided with vitamins and medicines. With the school supplies distribution, children received school supplies like bags, umbrella, notebooks, pens, coloring materials, among others.
The parents who seldom bring their children for medical check-up due to economic constraints appreciated the GNIP initiative of bringing medical services in their community. They were also appreciative of the school supplies especially for the families who find it hard to make their ends meet. The activities for the day were made more exciting with Xian Vigor helping the medical team, community volunteers, and staff. Hon. Wilfredo L. Cara, Barangay Bagong Silangan Chairman, graced the morning activity and conveyed his utmost support to Good Neighbors. The medical check-up was conducted in collaboration with Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center and St. Francis Generic Drugstore.
