Today at our 2nd last distribution we had the honour of listening to 2 blind children who sang wonderful songs to us.
The whole crew also took the opportunity to sing Happy Birthday to Irwin.
We had some special donations come thru. One was for the Kiwanis Club in Stratford. They had recently hosted a convention in Stratford Ontario and donated use of a booth for SCAW. As a thank you we donated 3 bedkits. It always brings a smile when Kiwanis labels come thru as we have many volunteers from Kiwanis help us thru the years.
We also took the opportunity to celebrate the ‘We the North’ fever on our team
After the distribution we took the opportunity to see the largest and oldest tree in the area. It was the biggest balete tree in Asia. It is 600 yrs old and 60m. Alternate name is the Millennium Tree
At our last distribution we gave out our 7000 bedkit.
Our mascot- lambchop- left us as she seems to enjoy being near the ocean where she can surf the waves.
We did some home visits afterwards. There are 9 children living in this home and the father is going blind. The mother works in Manila and visits every 6 months.
