The young girls of Elizabeth Home were grouped in two. As a group, they brainstormed their theme and expressed their thoughts creatively through Arts. In this activity, the beneficiaries learned the value of camaraderie. And that in any trials, we can surpass all life’s obstacles by working together, showing compassion to each other, and through faith. It also gave them additional knowledge of the new normal protocols and preventive measures which are proper handwashing; using of facemasks; and practice self-isolation whenever they get sick. They were also practicing good hygiene and were making their surroundings clean.
These are the some of the works of the young girls of Elizabeth Home:
The Virlanie Essential Workers
For the past two months, Virlanie social workers have been actively working in the Solidarity Against COVID-19 campaign for street communities and children, to give support to the beneficiaries by distributing food packs and hygiene kits. It was made possible through the help of our sponsors, donors, and partner organizations. As of May 18, 2020, the campaign has raised 5.4 Million worth of monetary donations to support the needs of the affected communities. 3,000 families, including children benefited from this campaign.
Papa Noel Borja, Virlanie’s company driver is among the essential workers during this time. According to him, he has no choice but to work straight to give support to Virlanie’s activities and daily operations, and of course to transport employees to and from work. Since the quarantine started, transportation services were put on suspension. You can check Papa Noel’s full testimonial on this video.
