GMMN celebrates 2nd Annual Foundation with Badjaos
PUERTO PRINCESA CITY, PALAWAN — The rain started drizzling, not long it poured. Still, GMMN, which celebrates its 2nd annual foundation this month, was on a mission to extend the spirit of love this Christmas season with 110 children and 50 mothers of Badjao tribe in the morning of December 21, 2010.
Dubbed as L.E.T.S Celebrate Christmas Day Camp (Life skills, Environment, Team Work and Sports), the activity was spearheaded by the Global Ministries of Missionary Nurses Inc. with Von Carlo L. Hechanova as team leader, in cooperation with the City Social Welfare Development, Bantay Bata 163 and a number of volunteers, Amerson Rivera, Madel Petalcorin, Rean Bridgette Seracarpio, and Mary Andrea Mangga.
The beneficiaries were treated with parlor games, given with gift packs and offered sumptuous meals. All went home loaded with joy and love in their hearts. The event, which was held at the Children’s Park, was successfully launched while the rain was pouring heavily then stopped eventually, leaving all attendees fully satisfied and happy.
GMMN would like to thank its donors and supporters, M.Mangga c/o J.Delos Reyes, E. Juanich, J.Fallurin c/o E.Maranon, R.Salavante, E.Maranon, N.Mauricio, N.de Asis, Mr./Mrs. Consulta, A.Catap, K.Santomin, L.Alingasa, and H. Capistrano in making this event a success.
