Inaugurating HAPI’s brand new Malolos, Bulacan Chapter!

Posted by Shane | Posted on December 23, 2020

In order to provide a workspace that is more conducive to productivity, HAPI’s Headquarters is now located at 078 Looban St., Pinagbakahan, City of Malolos, Bulacan.

During our kick-off event last December 18, we held a course and sponsored everyone’s lunch afterwards. For the kids, we also gave out milk and cookies – baked with love! – in the spirit of the holiday season!

We also thought it was an effective way to let people know in the area what Humanist Alliance Philippines, International is and what our advocacy is all about… a true introduction to HAPI.

As an introduction, HAPI Jr. Ambassador Angie Driskell explained to the guests – mostly mothers – that even though we do not have their religious beliefs, that doesn’t mean that we can’t help other people. She told them that it is all of our duty as human beings to help other people.

After that beautiful intro, we provided the moms a Basic First Aid Training Course led by Ma. Anne Christine Valenzuela, a Registered Nurse from the Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center male surgical ward.

We decided to give the moms basic first aid training as some of them stay at home to take care of their children and family. If anything happens, they will be able to attend to them.

After two hours of training, they were awarded certificates of completion.

“The empowered woman is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description.”
