Christmas 2009 - Volunteers visit the Philippines

Over the festive season, British and American PCF volunteers travelled to the Philippines visiting several Gawad Kalinga sites and schools donating writing materials as well as distributing Christmas gifts to over 300 children which included shoes, books, chocolates and even snow (Insta-Snow) which proved a big hit!

PCF volunteers - Emma gives out chocolates and gifts (left), Darrell and school children dance to "Nobody" (right).

Our visitors thoroughly enjoyed their Filipino Christmas and New Year celebrations, particularly the singing and dancing presented to them by the talented and endearing children of the slums. Generous donations made by these visitors included a children's field trip, a year's school tuition for 40 children as well as the rebuilding of a damaged school.

Insta-Snow proved a big hit with both children and adults who were thrilled with their new experience.

Christmas is the most anticipated feast of the year in the Philippines, the only Asian country where Christianity predominates. The splendid climate of this tropical land of many islands and many facets, the abundance and beauty of its flora and fauna, its rich waters, marine life and phenomenal landscape, its multitude of culinary delights, and above all, its warm-hearted people with their true devotion to faith and family - all these and more, and in true Filipino tradition, contributed to a holiday one will never forget.

School children welcome our PCF volunteers and donors.
