Philippines, Los Banos: “Care, Cleanliness, Peace”

On February 27, 2016, World CARP (WCARP) University of the Philippines Los Banos Chapter organized an outreach program for 40 children living in less developed areas in Timugan, Los Banos, Laguna, Philippines. The theme was “Kalinga, Kalinisan, Kapayapaan” (“Care, Cleanliness, Peace”).

 
There was a story-telling session on Joseph the Dreamer and God’s faithfulness in His promises to us, His children. There were also many interactive games and fun activities educating the children about cleanliness in the community and personal hygiene, which is an important and pressing topic for the community.
