On October 6, 2020, our club (Rotary International Multinational Manila: RIMM) assisted 4 of the scholars from Camp Hope for much needed school supplies such as notepads, colored pens, glue, bond paper, marker, folders, etc. Two of them are in senior high school while the other two are in college.
One in Grade 12 said that she was worried since she did not have any school supplies at all since her father who sells ballot (boiled duck egg) earns barely enough for the family to survive. She was teary-eyed with joy holding her school supplies.
RIMM also supported the 4 students with their needed weekly cellphone load to be able to attend their on-line classes in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic.
These 4 scholars that RIMM has supported opted for financial assistance for their schooling over the Samsung tablet that were given to the other beneficiary students.
