DOLE spends early Christmas with less fortunate kids

Iloilo City (9 December) -- The regional office of the Department of Labor and Employment here in Western Visayas celebrated its 77th anniversary with the less fortunate children of this city through an early Christmas gift giving.

Regional Director Manuel Roldan led the officers and personnel of the DOLE 6 regional and Iloilo offices in distributing gifts to some 50 streetchildren from the various districts of Iloilo City in a simple program held outside the DOLE regional office in Jaro, December 8.

Roldan said they chose to spend their anniversary with the streetchildren because he believes that these children will become good workers in the future.

Roldan said these children at their young age are already exposed to struggles and their early experiences of hardships will help them face the life's challenges that lie ahead of them.

"If we continue helping them, they can be successful or may surpass our successes", said Roldan.

The children received t-shirts, Christmas gifts containing toys, school supplies and goodies given by DOLE employees and other generous individuals and charitable organizations.

Roldan said the gift giving activity aims to bring the feeling of Christmas for these kids in homes instead in streets.

Aside from the gift giving, DOLE 6 has lined up other activities to mark its 77th anniversary in the region carrying the theme "Tuwid na Daan sa Tapat na Paglilingkod" which is in line with the reforms being pursued by President Benigno S. Aquino III.

Other activities include month-long information dissemination on DOLE's programs and thrusts, Reintegration Fair for Overseas Filipino Workers on December 10 and 11 and awarding of checks to identified local government units and community and workers organizations to fund various livelihood projects.
