The children from Daan Tubo, a poor neighbourhood near our house in Manila, and who usually come to us for tuitions in English and Math, came to celebrate a Christmas party with us last night. There were 35 children and 23 parents in total.
We had much food and gifts to distribute and joy to share!
Thanks to the financial help and donated bags and clothes which we received from Singapore, we were able to organise this first of three Christmas parties for child beneficiaries of the MCSPA outreach programmes in Metro Manila.
Next weekend, we shall gather the children and parents for a party at Parola and another at Payatas slums.
