PIA Press Release

Feature: "Handog Para kay Lolo at Lola"

By Leah T. Quintana

Butuan City (26 October) -- In celebration of the Elderly Filipino Week on October 1-7, the Regional Inter-Agency Committee for Senior Citizens (RIAC-SC) recently held the Handog Para Kay Lolo at Lola, a concerted gift-giving activity of the members of RIAC-SC and other line agencies for the benefit of the 35 residents of Por Cristo Home of the Abandoned Elderly in Abilan, Buenavista, Agusan del Norte.

A total of 18 National Government Agencies joined the activity. These agencies are DSWD, PIA, PNP-PRO XIII, DPWH, NCIP, DTI, DILG, PAROLE AND PROBATION, POPCOM, DOJ-ORSP, PHIC, CHR, TESDA, DBM, DOST, DOLE, SSS, and NEDA. The City Social Welfare Office (CSWDO) of Butuan City also participated in the said activity. Another individual donor, Jeanne Marie F. Marasigan also shared her blessings to the elderly.

As chair of the RIAC-SC, the DSWD Caraga spearheaded the distribution of goods containing food and non-food items to the oldies including one sack of rice from the CSWDO of Butuan City.

Ms. Fe Saumat, SWO III of DSWD Caraga, told the elderly at Por Cristo that in this celebration "it is just but right to recognize your important role in building this nation because I believe that some or all of you have contributed much for the welfare of the Filipino family at present.

In his testimony, Lolo Francisco de Lima, 73 years old, thanked the participating agencies on behalf of his co-residents, for remembering them and for the gifts given to them.

The theme for this year's celebration is "Nakatatanda: Huwaran at Yaman ng Bansa, Noon at Ngayon." (PIA) [top]
