The Quezon City Cubao Lions Club organized a summer treat for the children of Nayon ng Kabataan particularly those from the Lions Streetchildren Center (Center), a.k.a. Bahay Magalang. Last April 15, 24 boys ages 4-12 were treated by Club members to the fun rides at Circle of Fun in Quezon Memorial Circle.
This activity is an annual event of the Q C Cubao Lions capping a series of visits by the members during the year. Club President Nonie Esmedia had organized the visits to Nayon ng Kabataan following a long standing tradition of the Club to create public awareness and help street children return to mainstream through a comprehensive rehabilitation program. Usual activities during the visits include movie showing, parlor games, and bonding sessions.
Children in the Center are usually referred by police and local government officials after they are rescued from the streets and endorsed to Nayon ng Kabataan management, which is an institution for children under the Department of Social Welfare and Development – National Capital Region.
