Sunshine Sundays, for our
60 Sunshine Families!

We are very happy to report that we have successfully helped 60 families for a total of 45 weeks. Emergency relief was given from March until June 2020. This was followed by our rice and milk drive from July 2020 up to the present.


This year, our new campaign SUNSHINE SUNDAYS aims to encourage more people to join in our caring community, because there is room to give a little more!


HOW CAN YOU HELP?


In Cash. You can be a monthly donor of at least P500. The cash donations are for the purchase of rice and milk. Additional funds will allow us to add other essentials (some are listed below). This has taken the place of our Daily Lunch Packs which we normally provide during school days.

FOOD FOR THE MIND


'BASA PASA, BIYAYA'T PAG-ASA' was launched to enhance the children's reading abilities. Art and craft supplies are provided to develop the kids' creativity, discover their talents, and to build their confidence. When school begins at a later date, our children are prepared, motivated, and ready to take the challenges ahead of them! 

FOOD FOR THE BODY


Our FEEDING PROGRAM will provide RICE and MILK periodically for the children. We care about their nutritional growth and health, and this is our way of adding healthy food on their tables.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Sunshine Club Updates

We also welcome volunteers who can share their time and talents through various social media platforms. 


Monthly, Bi-Monthly, Occasionally or on Special Days ....as a family or with a group of friends.... let’s share our blessings!


Our giving is not a “dole-out”; it is TO ACCOMPANY A CHILD, A FRIEND, in a time when help is needed most. Let’s bring joy, offer hope and spread little miracles.


EVERY LITTLE BIT, WHEN PUT TOGETHER, ADDS UP TO MUCH. NOTHING IS TOO SMALL WHEN IT COMES FROM THE HEART!

On 14 March 2020, the children received a gift that speaks of joy, hope, and  love. A donor has kindly donated 'books' to our kids. These are not an 'just  books', it is a book authored by our founder, Nini Veloso.


The book is for sale at 150.00 php a copy (proceeds of sales will be donated to the club to procure donations for the children and their families). To get your copy, please send us an email.


With another national lockdown in our midst, we need to brace ourselves for more challenges ahead. We survived the first wave last year. Let's stay together; together is stronger. With God on our side, we will succeed in our mission to take care of our kids, their families, and their future.

To all our donors, our heartfelt gratitude.

The summer school break continues to give the children time to engage in all manners of play and activities before school resumes in June. The club has been delivering food essentials to the children's families bi-weekly, and this will continue in the foreseeable future. In the meantime we strive to schedule and organise various events for the kids. It is our hope that the club can finally resume delivery of hot meals as soon as the children are allowed to go back to their classrooms.


In the meantime, ongoing regular sessions with our 'Saturdates' program (conducted by the club's volunteers and various organizations), continue to improve the kids' English grammar and comprehension, as well deliver discussions is values formation.

FOOD FOR THE SOUL


As a continuing effort towards values formation, we will bring meaningful stories through various materials to the children and their mothers. We care to bring goodness, hope and joy, specially during these trying times.

Celebrating with the 

Sunshine Club Scholars

Easter is a very joyful season. Junie and I, together with our goddaughter, Maita Fullido, invited 7 of our scholars (1 graduate and 2 were absent) for a simple, yet festive dinner to celebrate Easter and to give thanks for the blessings of their triumphs.


Our scholars are former Sunshine Club members who were individually selected and are supported by active donors. They have shown admirable virtues, as they persevered the last 2 years (and still ongoing) of the Pandemic. Despite their limited resources, difficult situations, and the challenging demands of blended learning, our scholars showed grit with the ability to perform well in school and at work. This we admire them for, and this we applaud them for!


The opportunity to see them again and to hear them share sweet stories and laughters despite their trying circumstances, was indeed very moving. They inspired us, and encouraged us to help them more. May they provide our present Sunshine Kids good examples which will lead to a brighter future.

Basic essentials such as rice, eggs and milk were distributed this weekend. The children likewise received a rosary each.
