Inopacan town receives financial assistance for daycare center

By Gay B. Gaspay

Tacloban City, Leyte (29 August) -- To sustain the existence of the Day Care Center in Inopacan, Leyte. Mayor Alfredo Lloren received recently a financial assistance from Leyte Governor Jericho "Icot" Petilla.

The financial assistance amounting to P60,000 pesos was given during the 2nd Year Commemoration of Inopacan Mass Graves Exhumation Program held at the Municipal Covered Court of Inopacan, Leyte.

In an interview with Inopacan Vice President of Day Care affairs Charlene Sirlos, the Day Care Center caters to children of said municipality ages 4 to 6 yrs. Old.

According to Ms. Sirlos, a total of 42 children are now endrolled in said day care center. And the main activity of the center includes socialization among the children and most of the time playing with fellow endolled day care children.

The amount they received from Gov. Petilla will be a great help for the acquisition of more toys, facilities, equipment and improve their play grounds. Sirlos further said the children, who are benefitted by the program are sons and daughters of fishermen and farmers of the municipality.

The daycare program is one of the municipal programs to ease the burdens of parents who are out busy earning a living while their children are safe at the care and supervision of the guardian, the day care center staff.

Mayor Lloren, on the other hand, is thankful that Gov. Petilla has attended to the immediate needs of the fisherfolks and farmers of his town. Otherwise without the existence of the Day Care Center parents can't go out to work for a living, he added.

Together with the assistance extended to Inopacan Day Care Center, a total of 27 Rebel Returnees, as well, were given emergency, basic, shelter and livelihood assistance thru the Balik-Baril program amounting to P445,000 from the generous Leyte Gov. Petilla himself. (PIA-8) [top]
