CPG-RSPO Foundation, Inc. in cooperation with Corporate Human Resources Division held its Valentine’s Activity for CPG Employees last February 05, 2011 at Sulyap ng Pag-asa Community, Brgy. Bagong Silangan, Quezon City. Twenty one employees volunteered to share their time with the 100 children of Focolare Movement.
Focolare Movement is an international religious organization that promotes the ideals of unity and universal brotherhood through providing homes to indigent families and creating a self-sustaining Christian community such as Sulyap ng Pag-asa.
“Sulyap ng Pag-asa”, as the word connotes, is a glimpse of hope to everyone–that despite of insufficient resources, houses for the poor can be built and a Christian community can emerge through the help of different individuals and groups. This shows that our world is still capable of being a better place because of people who take time to care. Our volunteers have demonstrated that little things done with great heart is a great leap to change as they took time to be with the children playing games and facilitating activities such as storytelling, valentine’s card making, and coloring.
The event culminated with feeding the children whose faces had pure joy and delight. This surely proved to be an event not just to nourish the body but to nourish the heart as well.
To those who missed this fun-filled worthwhile experience, come and join us in the next volunteer activity! See you!
