HPIM5907It is often said that Christmas is for children. Normally children dream of receiving the things they wish for themselves. Some are fortunate to receive them and some are not. And in some instances, children totally give up dreaming of receiving things even on Christmas as their family could not afford it.

For 4 years now D&L personnel has taken on fulfilling the wishes of the indigent students of Bagumbayan Elementary School bringing out that sweet smile of joy when they open their gifts and receiving the things that are more than they wished for.

Pamaskong Handog Project of D&L Group of Companies through Lao Foundation was held on December 12 this year. 160 indigents student selected and recommended by their respective advisory teachers benefited from the project.

Various wishes from toys to clothes, to uniforms, school shoes, PE shoes, school supplies and groceries for their family were fulfilled by 106 personnel of the D&L Group of Companies.

The program started with a doxology lead by selected students at around 2pm. It was followed by a short message of Mr. Paul Alfaro, the HRD and Admin Manager of D&L Group and the concurrent Executive Director of Lao Foundation. He recognized the presence of everyone and especially the sponsors who shared their blessings and provided the students with gifts. After a tiring but full of laughter group games, the students received their individual gifts and refreshments. 

The program closed with a group dance number of selected students as their way of showing their gratitude to the D&L personnel-volunteers who shared their afternoon with them.

For making Pamaskong Handog Project a success, Lao Foundation once again would like to thank the following personnel for their continued support and for sharing their blessings to these indigent students:
