Children’s Paradise Montessori School is reactivating OPERATION H.O.P.E. (for Help, Opportunity, Peace, and Empowerment) as its means to reach out to those in need. This shall be an ongoing program to provide any immediate help and varied opportunities to promote peace through empowering people.
CPMS chose to reach out to the Badjao Community in Alaska, Mambaling, Cebu City through the Nano Nagle Child Care and Learning Center (NNCCLC) and the Cebu South farmers through the Communities for Alternative Food Ecosystems Initiative (CAFEi).
These 2 organizations have been CPMS partners for years now. They will be the beneficiaries. NNCCLC is run by the Presentation Sisters while CAFEi is an NGO.
CPMS welcomes donations in kind and in cash. “We raise funds to help ease the suffering of our dear Badjaos and farmers who are typhoon Odette victims by providing the following immediate needs and support them in dealing with this traumatic experience”, CPMS President Marivic Bathan said.
The following are the immediate needs of the typhoon victims:
1. Drinking water and healthy food
2. Solar lights and solar chargers for cellphones, etc.
3. Building materials to fix and construct damaged structures/houses
Drinking water is the top priority right now. Because of the devastation, we lost a lot of trees and plants. This is why it has become hotter now in Cebu. People easily gets dehydrated. Water is life!
Your donations will go a long way…. it gives us HOPE! And hope keeps us going….
