Lawyers share holiday spirit
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Bar Association (PBA) led by current president Rodel Cruz and members of their board of directors last week distributed toys, gifts, computers and food to residents of a Gawad Kalinga community in Pateros, Rizal.
PBA built 50 Gawad Kalinga housing units in Pateros, Rizal, 5 years ago. Since then, the organization has been bringing to the area holiday giveaways for the children in the community.
This holiday season, PBA hired a magician to provide entertainment for the children. It also gave the community two computers and printer, and pledged to ensure Internet connection soon. They also donated chairs and tables for the child care center located near their GK community.
In spite of the heavy downpour during the lawyers' visit, the holiday spirit was evident in the smiles of children of the community.
