Mark is one of the 32 students with special needs who are enrolled this school year (2017-18 ) at the Romblon East Central School ( RECS ) Special Education Classes. ( SPED ). He is a kid with Down's Syndrome, same as others in his class. Other classes have kids with hearing difficulties, vision problems, learning difficulties, behavioral problems, etc.
These special kids remind me of my sister, Pangga, who had Down's Syndrome and died at the age of 46. A year after her passing, my family, relatives and some friends came together and started " Pangga ta Ikaw,"
https://www.facebook.com/groups/Pangga.ta.ikaw, an endeavor to make her passing memorable by helping these special kids enrolled at the RECS -SPED classes. For the last 3 years, we have been providing travel expenses for some indigent kids for them to be able to attend school on a regular basis. Some of them travel the seas daily or three times a week and some by land from far away barangays.
Lately, the teachers thought that a mini-therapy room for the kids would be a lot of help for them to fully develop their potentials. There is a vacant lot at the back of their classroom that could be used for this purpose. This room would enable the kids to hone their motor skills, fine skills as well their social skills through
play. We need some amount to do this project and we need your support.
Every help is appreciated. Here's a summary where your dollars will go.
$ 5 - 1 bag of cement
$ 10 - 2 bags of cement
$ 20 - labor for 1 day
$ 40 - 1 truck of river sand
$ 50 - 1 truck of gravel
$ 100 - labor for 5 days or 2 trucks of gravel
Let us all celebrate our good health and happy family life by sharing our blessings. Let us help these special kids be the best that they can be through the guidance of their passionate teachers so they will be able to enjoy their lives fully as we are.
God will always bless our generosity.
