This came as quite a surprise considering they had been waiting at the site for several hours and the temperature was about 38° Celsius!
One little boy had fused fingers and another had an enormous stomach on his tiny frame. Dr. Romy Infantado, the president of the local Kiwanis Club, said they would follow up with medical attention for these children.
In the afternoon, we were — as always — so warmly greeted at a Roman Catholic parish, for our final distribution of 350 bedkits. The parish was being used as a distribution site, even though there were children from any or no denomination at all there.The invocation by their priest was very moving. He expressed their humble gratitude for our gifts. He said that SCAW served as an inspiration to the local community to renew their own efforts in serving their greatest in need!
After at least 1,000 km of traveling along the roads of the Philippine Islands visiting 13 locations, we wrapped up today. We feel so privileged to be the ones blessed to see the happy smiles on the faces of 5,000 children!
