On December 18, 2018 RIMM conducted a “Responsible Parenthood” seminar and Christmas Gift giving to 60 indigent women, the most of whom were evicted due to Twin Lake Mall development, at the Fish Gate Foundation in barangay (village) Amuyong, Alfonso, Cavite.
PP Klaus, PP Casey, Rotarian Manilito and Gina of DSWD shared their insights on Family Planning. Honorary Member Jun proudly told the participants that he underwent vasectomy and experienced no side effects at all. In fact, he is one of very few Filipino men who chose to be vasectomized. The head of the midwife of Amuyong explained all of the contraceptives including sub-dermal implant and IUD are available for free by the Philippine Government through Rural Health Unit of Alfonso.
Gina of Alfonso DSWD (Department of Social Welfare Development) conducted a group workshop to find out what contraceptives they are using and their thoughts of the disadvantages of unplanned pregnancies. Some women were not using any form of contraceptives and decided to use them during the seminar after realizing it was a serious matter for the future of their children, although their knowledge of contraceptives at that time was only pills.
RIMM donated sacks of rice, canned goods and firewood. PP Casey gave P20 bills to all the children there. Rotarian Miki assisted in the distribution of the said donation.
The indigent women and the Barangay officials of Amuyong were grateful of the meaningful event.
