MM West B Conducts Feeding Day and Kids Camp for Cornerstone
Metro Manila West B conducted a feeding program last February 28, 2015 in observance of National Feeding Day. The activity was one of those declared official CFC BCOP events at the recent Couples for Christ BCOP Summit 2015 held at the SMX Convention Center.

It was a day of clean fun, laughter and learning for both the young ones and the young-at-heart. It also marked a day of pure love and faith-in-action at its best as 96 kids/Cornerstone tutees received physical nourishment through the nutritious food. More than that though, the children were also spiritually fed in the Kids’ Camp for CFC-Kids for Christ.

Five elementary schools under the tutelage of Metro Manila West B Sector, namely Cubao Elementary School (CES), Diosdado Macapagal Elementary School (DMES), Eulogio Rodriquez Sr. Elementary School (ERSES), San Francisco Elementary School (SFES) and the host-school, Ramon Magsaysay Elementary School (RMES) in Apo Street, Quezon City participated in the Kids Camp/ Feeding Program. The children assembled in their respective schools at 8 AM, before trooping to the RMES together with their parents, guardians, ates and kuyas.

The program formally started at 10 AM with an opening prayer led by Rocky Tamalayan, SFC Volunteer Cornerstone Core Team Member. Kid’s Camp Session 1 was given by Mildred Reyes, an SFC teacher. The talk, titled God Made Me Special Because He Loves Me had the children divided into groups for a hand-painting activity. CFC Kids for Christ fulltime worker Jonathan Lloyd Polinar facilitated and processed the session.

Session 2, titled Jesus is My Best Friend and facilitated by Allelu de Jesus, highlighted an animated story-telling activity and rosary bracelet making.

The goal of the session was to introduce the children to a loving relationship with Jesus Christ by making them experience His love and allowing them to respond in a personal way.

Session 3 (Jesus Wants to Make Others Happy) saw Erika Ramilo, an SFC member and a teacher by profession, facilitating the bubble-making and card-making activities. The artsy cards and love letters the children crafted earlier were later on handed to their respective parents, guardians, titos/ titas, ates/ kuyas after the Parents’ Orientation.

The closing session was led by Josh Rosario, a KFC volunteer, who also led the parents in praying over their kids and vice versa. Medals of merit were also awarded to deserving participants who were most behaved, most cooperative and most creative among each group.

Highly-nutritious and organic food like tinolang manok with generous portions of malunggay leaves and sayote were served to encourage the children to eat vegetables. Food served for snacks were also as healthy and nutritious—organic chicken macaroni soup with malunggay, pancit bihon and malunggay pandesal.

More than 80 volunteers and Cornerstone advocates served during the day-long event. They helped either in the preparation of materials needed and logistics, food preparation and distribution, as program facilitators, song and dance performers, etc. The success of this activity would also not be possible without the untiring love and support of CFC and Family Ministries’ Leaders headed by Alvin and Mariz Ricafort, Cornerstone West B Sector Couple Coordinators; Leo and Tess Macaraeg, CFC Kids for Christ West B Couple Coordinators; Jun and Alet Garcia, Chapter Leaders of CFC-Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, Retiro; Jane Lucena, KFC National Coordinator; West B KFC Chapter Coordinators, and the other Chapter Leaders, volunteers and advocates from the Family Ministries of SFC, YFC, KFC, among others, who generously shared their valuable time, talent and resources to serve God’s little children.

These two activities in one event were made possible through the financial assistance provided by Tahanang Filipino and SFC Kuala Lumpur who chose MM West B Sector ANCOP—Cornerstone as beneficiary of their Pinoy Ako Documentary Concert held last November 30, 2014 in KL, Malaysia. (Acel Badilla)
