HAPI carries on with Kids NutriCamp

Posted by Angelique | Posted on March 10, 2018

HAPI Kids NutriCamp by Humanist Alliance Philippines, International (HAPI) continues to nourish children beneficiaries as another feeding program was held by the parent and teen volunteers of Ilaya Street in Muntinlupa City on February 25, 2018. The dinner program was organized by no other than Jamie Del Rosario-Martinez, HAPI Executive Secretary and Kids NutriCamp Project Manager. In attendance were long-time HAPI member Clarence Ruellos with his wife and HAPI National Events Officer-in-Charge McJarwin Cayacap.

February has seen the beginning of an upgrade for Kids NutriCamp. Parent volunteers ensured that dinner was made with lots of vegetables — celery, moringa, carrots and bell peppers among other fresh ingredients. In effect, the HAPI Kids family table spread was filled with delectables such as roasted chicken, loaves of white bread, ground pork stew and Filipino-style spaghetti.

Excited to spend dinner time together, some of the children beneficiaries prepared dance recitals that entertained the community as the fading Sunday sun showered the city with a pink hue. One group sang in a chorus “When You Say Nothing At All” by Ronan Keating as an offering of gratitude to the regular donors and sponsors of the monthly program. Truly, action speaks louder than words in the world of absolute humanism. Our volunteers go out of their way to help humankind and inspire a better future.

HAPI Metro Manila Chapter has written to the Muntinlupa City Health Office and is looking forward to a collaboration with a public nutritionist beginning March 2018. Also in the works are a system that would keep track of improvements by children beneficiaries who are found to be sickly or undernourished, and enhanced pep talks on important social issues like child rights and environmental awareness.
