The ongoing coronavirus disease (covid-19) pandemic has changed the lives of every Filipino.
And this includes kids who have been forced to stay at home and not enjoy the outdoors for the last five months.
That is why in coordination with Christian social welfare agency Gentle Hands, Uling Roasters brought joy to the orphans of their orphanage in 27. F. Castillo St., Project 4, Cubao, Quezon City.
“This pandemic will have emotional scars on kids as well,” shared Bounty Agro Ventures Incorporated president Ronald Mascariñas. “They will forever remember this year as the time everything stopped.
“That is why in our own little way, we wanted to bring joy to the kids of Gentle Hands Orphanage.”
Last Wednesday, Uling Roasters sent a total of 240 packed meals to the orphanage so that the kids and the in-house personnel of the institution will have a treat.
The orphanage houses 180 kids and 60 staff members that have been locked down since the implementation of the quarantine.
“Hopefully, we were able to bring them joy even just for a day,” added the amiable executive.
