The volunteers and members of Project Teresa Inc. carried those words in their hearts as they continued to spread the joy of giving throughout the different parts of our country.

Heartfelt smiles of the 98 pupils welcomed the team as they conducted a gift giving program and nutritional feeding program dedicated for the children.

The program started with the performances prepared by the pupils, followed by the opening message of Ms. Leila M. Brosas, principal of Ladislao Diwa Elementary School on July 10, 2019.

The leader of Project Teresa also shared some inspirational quotes through her message. Afterwards delicious and healthy meals were served during the nutritional feeding program.

School supplies were also distributed to the students and manipulative toys which may serve as teaching materials for the teachers were given out.

To close the program, Mrs. Teresa Beito Ballesteros, President of Project Teresa gave a speech on how they want to continue their journey of giving and extend a hand to those people who are in need. “Kasiyahanpo namin ang maglingkod sa abot n gaming makakaya….Sana po ay tuloy-tuloy kaming makapaghandog sa mga batang nanganngailangan ng tulong,” said Mrs. Teresa Ballesteros.

Gift giving and feeding programs is not only about the gifts and food received but it is about the smiles and thank you’s said in return.

It is also not about the physical things but it is about the joy being passed through one another. Project Teresa does not only makes the hands and stomachs full but most importantly, they make our hearts thankful and warm with happiness. (Mylene T. Mojica, Editor, DO Express)
