“The Gift of Bread”

Project Pearls After School Program

January 22, 2017


Helping Land, Tondo, Manila, Philippines



“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”

-Mahatma Gandhi



Aside from the usual feeding and After School Program for this Sunday morning, some of our volunteers roamed around Helping Land and Aroma to distribute boxes of breads!


While the other half set of volunteers were busy teaching our PEARLS kids the Math subject, some were scattered around the slum community of Tondo to give breads to everybody!

Kids actively listened to their volunteer-teachers about their lessons. And at the same time that our PEARLS kids were having class, volunteers outside the courtyard did a great job in making everyone smile.

Kids and adults fell in line to have bread as their breakfast. As they got their shares, smiles on their faces were traceable. Little did they know that we were more than happy on seeing them smile.


And we couldn’t thank enough our sponsors.


Thank you so much, Caress Banson for the undying support on our mission. They donated more than ten boxes of different breads for everyone!


Thank you also for this day’s list of feeding sponsors:

  • Mendoza Family
  • Sy-Tan Family
  • Yang Family
  • Jusi Family
  • Claudio Family



And to our volunteers, hugs of bottomless thanks are for all of you!
