Medical Mission 2013

Two days before Christmas, Tapulanga Foundation held its' yearly medical mission at Our Lady of Nativity Chapel in Hacienda Tinihaban I, Silay City.

The place was filled up with 100 children, from babies to 12 year old kids, together with their mothers.

Everyone received a free check-up and prescription from our two doctors: Dr. Joan Ledesma-Millonado, Tapulanga Foundation’s Vice President and Dr. Kate Abello, wife of TF president Robin Abello.

Many younger members of the Ledesma family also came to help the mission. Besides the free medicine and deworming treatment, kids received a free toy and snack after their consultation.

Thank you as well to Westmont Pharmaceuticals, Inc. for donating Biogesic Paracetamol drops and syrup!

Christmas Giving 2013 Party for our Scholars

Our scholars gathered at the Edgardo Ledesma Hall on December 20 for Tapulanga Foundation's Christmas Giving 2013 party!

We had scholars from first grade to the sixth light up the atmosphere with a couple of dance performances, before everybody took turns coming up on stage. Some of the kids received a card with a personal message from their donor.

Every scholar received a colorful ecobag with a set of school supplies, a pack of "noche buena" (Christmas eve) grocery and a new toy!

After opening of gifts, everyone had snacks of spaghetti, special mamon (a Filipino sponge cake), and juice.

They also had two flavors of ice cream available – a crowd favorite!

The preschool scholars had their Christmas party on December 18 while the high school and college scholars, on December 21.
