Early Christmas with the Aetas

VIDES Philippines held its annual christmas party with the aeta community in Sitio Monicayo, Mabalacat, Pampanga last December 5.

Volunteers and FMA sisters led by Sr Sue, Sr Jojo, and Sr. Evelyn spent an entire morning of dancing, singing and games with the locals.   A total of 250 children and mothers received gift packs consisting of rice, canned goods, food products, clothes, and toys.  Fifteen aeta families were also chosen as beneficiaries of the Kambing Mo, Kabuhayan Ko Program.  Haircutting services were also offered.

It was tiring to dance, sing, and play with the kids, but as always, it was a fun, heartwarming experience. A great bonding time with friends and volunteers of VIDES Philippines Volunteer Foundation Inc. also made the day truly worthwhile.
