PAMAG Donation of Books and Used Clothes to Kal-Anan Elementary School

Ms. Rowena Dungog, Principal of Kal-Anan Elementary School in Tabogon, Cebu received the donation of children’s books and used clothes for the school as part of PAMAG’s Books for the Barrios program. This was made possible by the generosity of Dr. Arlene Dijamco and family and Atlas Balikbayan Shipping. 

Kal-Anan Elementary school was one of the original recipients of a school building with two classrooms after the devastation of Typhoon Yolanda in 2013. After that, PAMAG had continued their support with books, school supplies, used clothing through PAMAG’s Books for the Barrios Program. With the Covid pandemic forcing schools into remote lessons, PAMAG continued their support of the school with more school supplies and printers for the school. Hopefully, with the continued support of PAMAG, the school children will enjoy learning by reading and the teachers will also benefit from our donations.

PAMAG & RCUD GIFTS TO THE COASTAL COMMUNITY OF DAGUPAN CITY

The Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan and PAMAG brought compassion to the scavengers in Bonuan Gueset.  They are referred as “manga-ngalakal” in Filipino vernacular. They collect discarded plastics, bottles, papers, and metals and sell these recyclable materials. Bonuan Gueset is located in the coastal area of Dagupan City. These low-income families are vital to the collection of said recyclable materials in the coastal area and it is their primary source of income. Previous projects awarded five “manga-ngalakal” tri-bikes donated by the club through the Rotary District grant as a livelihood enabler to help them become more effective at collecting recyclable materials which translates to a DIRECT POSITIVE IMPACT AT CONSERVING THE ENVIRONMENT

In addition, PAMAG in memory of its Past President Dr. Victor Bautista, and RC Uptown Dagupan distributed 20 grocery packs to these families last June 29, 2022.  The grocery packs contained rice, noodles, milk, loaf of bread with spread, canned goods, coffee biscuits, and multivitamins for children. We hope that these food packs bring some immediate relief to their families and that future projects can help improve their livelihood.

PAMAG & RCUD SUPPORT TO THE NANTANGALAN SPECIAL EDUCATION CENTER

The Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan and PAMAG undertook a special project in response to a plea from Ms. Rosita Fernandez, the coordinator of Nantangalan Special Education Center, an elementary public school for special children in Pozorrubio, Pangasinan.  She was very concerned because these pupils often come to school hungry, pale and weak.  These pupils are non-verbal and have mental, intellectual or developmental disabilities.  Thirty-eight pupils attend the class while two special cases are home-based and visited by a teacher.  

In response to the request for assistance to meet the students basic needs, PAMAG and the Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan distributed 40 packs with 2kilos of Rice, Milk packs, Noodles, Canned-goods, loaf bread and cheese spread and multivitamins.  The club members also provided some entertainment and snacks, as well as further assessment of their condition to plan the next nutrition program in the coming months. 

 We believe that people with disabilities need health care and health programs for the same reasons anyone else does-to stay well, active, and a part of the community. 

As one of their teachers said, ”They need our understanding, not our pity. They need to feel like they are part of our community.”

PAMAG & RCUD: HOPE ON WHEELS FOR POPSICLE VENDOR

PAMAG and Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan has chosen Salvador Tambogon, a 61 year old ambulant popsicle vendor as its latest recipient of its “Pangkabuhayan Tribike”. Day-by-day with a heavy load full of ice buko popsicles, he carried the weight of his styrofoam carrier, the source of livelihood on his back. However, walking on his regular route, he barely sells enough to get by on the short distances he can cover on foot. Today, PAMAG and Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan stepped in to make a lasting difference by choosing him as another recipient of its “Pangkabuhayan Tribike” livelihood project. He has no family and resides in Manaoag, Pangasinan. He is grateful to PAMAG and RCUD for the tribike that will make each day easier and his life better.

PAMAG & RCUD: HOPE ON WHEELS FOR MOTHER OF 8 CHILDREN

To make a difference in a sustainable way, PAMAG and Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan chose Cristelita Calansanan as a recipient of its “Pangkabuhayan Tribike” project. She is a food vendor and is amongst the poorest of the poor.  She is a mother of 8 children married to a construction worker residing in Sitio Ambalanga, Bonuan Gueset, Dagupan City. 

Their family of 10 live in a shanty with only one enclosed/non-ventilated sleeping room.  For her family, survival depends on how hard they strive day-by-day. She does what she can to supplement her husband’s earnings by selling food, washing clothes and occasionally working as a domestic helper. But with so many children to support they can’t send them all to school so some of the kids have dropped out of school. They also have to skip meals even as she sells food to others. And not having the means to transport goods to sell limits her ability to sell and earn more every day. 

With this gift from Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan and PAMAG, she hopes to earn more for her family and lift them from poverty. Everyone in her family is excited at the new possibilities this tribike presents them.

PAMAG & RCUD: HOPE ON WHEELS FOR VEGETABLE VENDOR

PAMAG and RC Uptown Dagupan have  found yet another worthy beneficiary of its “Pangkabuhayan Tri-bike” A Livelihood Project for Esmeralda Lajerda, a 41-year-old vegetable vendor residing in barangay Dilan, Pozorrubio. She works really hard buying vegetables to sell and repacking coal to sell as well. But with only a little makeshift trolley to use to bring her wares to the market, she only manages to sell P100-200 ($($3-4)/day which is barely enough to buy rice and other basic necessities let alone their maintenance medications for hypertension. Her husband also works but doesn’t bring in a steady income. They needed a way to bring more goods to the market and sell more everyday. 

For some, determination is not enough to overtake hindrances in making a living.  However, determination is enough for a good soul to deserve new hope.  This gift of a new tri-bike brings to them a new hope and provides them with a better tomorrow.
