50 Child Laborers in Capiz Benefits from Project Angel Tree

 

Roxas City, Capiz – Strong winds and scattered rains pour down in a gloomy Wednesday morning. It was days after Typhoon Tisoy left Philippine Area of Responsibility and while others decided to stay in their homes, the Department of Labor and Employment Capiz Field Office in coordination with PESO Panay and Barangay Local Government Unit (BLGU) of Navitas, Panay, Capiz conducted an Outreach Program (Project Angel Tree) in Municipality of Panay last December 11, 2019.

 

This Project forms part of the combined efforts of the government to keep the children away from dangerous workplaces. The involvement of the parents and the whole community will also be a great help for children to be safe and protected from exploitation.

 

50 profiled children in Municipality of Panay involved in child labor (CL) or at risk of becoming CL received Food Packs containing 2kgs of rice, 4 packs noodles and 2 cans of sardines. The kits were obtained from the Walk for a Cause year 2 activity last June 28, 2019 a fund-raising initiative for Child Labor.

Punong Baranggay Vicente Regalado expressed his heartfelt gratitude to DOLE Capiz for the goods and services extended to the profiled CL in Navitas, Panay. It’s a privilege for them to avail the services that the department is offering.

 

Further, Capiz Field Office stressed that “Poverty is not a hindrance but still an opportunity to see everyone’s potential and develop our ambition to uplift our economic status”.

 

Just like a spider, despite of their frailties, they overcome difficulties and hardship by maximizing the God given talents to foresee the coming of the storm and make necessary precautions to protect their lives and home. 

 

The activity successfully ended with a silver lining in the faces of the CL. The spirit of Christmas surrounded the whole community and sparks a new hope that better days are coming.
