“HAPI Kids, HAPI Hearts” Lights Up Faces in Alabang

HAPI Jr. Ambassador

Valentine’s Day this year was filled with so much love and laughter all because of the children of HAPI Kids Nutrition Camp – Alabang. Through the generosity of Humanist Global Charity, HAPI was able to provide cooking equipment and other items that will be used to continue with the nutrition program, under the leadership of Jamie del Rosario Martinez, in Alabang.

Along with a hearty breakfast of pancit (noodles), the children received a bag of goodies and snacks provided and packed by a small group of foreign students. Each child also received a reusable lunchbox and drinking cup so that they no longer have to bring containers from home when there are events.

Our everyday HAPI heroes!

The children were then asked to make Valentine cards on the spot to show what they love most in life. These cards were then judged and six winners were chosen. All the winners received prizes. This was done after a short discussion about what they hold nearest and dearest to them.

The energy and enthusiasm of these children are so inspiring. We hope to continue providing them with more educational programs to enrich their lives further. The smiles on their faces tell a story that no words can fully express.
