Hi everyone!

In Q C Cubao Lions Club, I volunteered to revive a service project that is close to the heart of QC Cubao Lions Club, and that is caring for the street children.

In 1985, I was President under Zone Chairman Philip Buencamino of Silangan Lions Club and during the leadership of Gov. Cris Cajulis, together Cubao and Silangan committed to find out what it is like for children to live in the streets of Araneta Center, then known as the streetchildren center of Metro Manila. At 12 midnight of week-ends, we’ll be at Quezon Arcade, negotiate the sidewalks of Araneta, rarely with no children. They sleep, play, eat and sniff rugby whenever they gather. Us, we are ready with sandwiches and drinks for them. Food makes them talk about “life in the street.” When we go home, we ask, “what can we do to make a difference, just a little difference, just a little.”

Araneta streetchildren were brought to Manila Hotel and performed a drama skit depicting life in the street in October 18, 1998 during the District Induction of Gov. Boy Palad and Vice-Gov. Billy de Guzman. This event gave rise to the birth of the Lions Streetchildren Foundation.

Today, the streetchildren situation in Metro Manila is far worst than 26 years ago. If one wants to find out how serious is this social problem, drive down the streets of Brgy. Paang Bundok along La Loma cemetery which serves as their lair. Here, everything happens from out-of-school, to early pregnancy, to crime accomplice.

A group of QC Cubao Lions Club visited the place last week from 7-9 PM, PICTURES CLICK HERE. I invite all of you to join and another encounter with children and observe, on Tuesday, 8PM, March 22.

Brgy. Paang Bundok Barangay Hall
Retiro cor. Iriga St., La Loma, QC
