Bahay Pag-Asa, Binan, Laguna
Every year this month, Saffron Catering reserved one of their busy days to share their blessings with the unfortunate children. This year, Chummy Chum thought of surprising the children from Bahay Pag-Asa in Binan, Laguna, through the assistance of the DSWD in the said municipality.
Bahay Pag-Asa is situated in a government facility where street children who beg for money and those who use solvent to mask their hunger, are gathered saving them from further social and moral damages.
After everything was set with the DSWD Binan, the DSWD officers accompanied the Chummy Chum team to the venue where the children were gathered. This is not the first time Chummy Chum has done an event with DSWD in Binan Laguna, and the children were happy to meet Chummy Chum once again. There are some new children added to the group, including infants and toddlers who were rescued from abusive parents and guardians.
It was heartwarming to see the children all smiles and joyous amidst the difficult social situation they did not choose to be in. Thank you Saffron Catering for the delectable food and gifts.
Special thanks to Clearlogic Inc., for letting the team use their company van, and to the SM Store for the toys.
