As an annual outreach program, the Analytikus Club, headed by Ms. Lea C. Cababasay, organized a gift-giving activity for the indigenous people (IP’s) of Brgy, Lanit, Jaro, Iloilo City last December 16, 2019.
The activity started with a prayer led by Elora Margareth Cabag, followed by the opening remarks given by Gloryvill Falsis, who were both tenured members of the said club. Afterward, games were held for the children and were facilitated by the club.
To encourage sanitation and proper hygiene to school-aged children, some club members demonstrated the proper method of brushing one’s teeth and washing one’s hands.
After the demonstration, the IP’s, together with the club and some faculty members, shared snacks to the recipients. Gifts, including school bags for children, rice, clothes, and other health supplies, were also given.
“I felt happy that I got to share my blessings with others and I made them happy through simple things during Christmas season,” said Dayne Clarisse Giner, a club member.
The club plans to continue the said activity in its succeeding years.
