PIA Press Release

Feature: 4ID reaches out to children

Butuan City (16 September) -- As Filipinos, we all have dreamt of having a peaceful and progressive nation, a nation that is safe and secure for our future generation to live in - this is our primordial responsibility and accountability to our children.

We all would like to make our country and our world a better place to live in, to ensure a bright and prospective tomorrow for our children, that is why the ARMY, especially the 4th Infantry Diamond Troopers, is taking an active role to achieve this endeavor.

Through the supervision and guidance of Maj Gen Victor A Felix AFP, Commander, 4th Infantry (Diamond) Division, Diamond Troopers are reaching out to the community through the children as a way of showing concern and commitment in ensuring a peaceful and progressive environment that is conducive for the children?s developmental growth as the future of our generation.

As part of this commitment, 4ID will provide utmost support to the "Batang Himsog" Program, an in-School Health and Nutrition Feeding and Livelihood Program, an initiative of Anak Mindanao Partylist (AMIN) in partnership with the Department of Education, Local Government Units and the Katilingbanong Pamahandi sa Mindanaw Foundation Inc. (KMPFI), to help lessen and slowly eradicate malnutrition in the rural barangay schools within Misamis Oriental.

The Batang Himsog Program aims to address the problem of malnutrition by providing daily breakfast to at least 4,000 grade 1 pupils in 85 schools of Gingoog City, Claveria, Magsaysay and MISORET town.

The 4ID is optimistic in this program in that it could help children in the rural areas to receive proper nutrition and education so that they can become healthy and full of promise, ready to take on any challenge and opportunity that they shall meet as they grow up.

Also a part of this commitment to reach out to the children, 4th Infantry Division welcomed pre-school students from the Lifetime Study Center, Cagayan de Oro City during their educational tour inside Camp Evangelista last 14 September 2010.

The children viewed Armor Tanks and 105MM Cannons. They were also met warmly by the Diamond Troopers who interacted and mingled with them.

4ID personnel proved that they are not only the protectors of the land but they are also their partners in community and nation building and that these children and their parents can depend on them in their dream of having a better and brighter atmosphere that is viable for their growth and well-being.

Through these efforts of the Division, the Diamond Troopers are leading the way in showing their concern and commitment to our children in helping promote a better environment and opportunity for them to live peacefully and harmoniously as our future and our hope in the coming generations.
