A Day of Serving at Friendship Home in the Philippines

Friendship Home Fr. Luis Amigo (FHFLA) was teeming with joy when 25 youths from the Manila CadetsPlus programme and YSMOU dropped in for a day of serving and giving on 21 May 2024.

FHFLA was first set up as a shelter for homeless children. Today, it focuses on uplifting the welfare and interests of marginalised and vulnerable children and youth in the Philippines. For more than 30 years, FHFLA has reached out and uplifted the lives of almost 2,700 children and youth.

While some volunteers did area cleaning around the home, others were seen engaging the beneficiaries with craft activities and games. Volunteers also had the opportunity to share their seafaring experiences and stories behind why they joined the career. The sharing inspired the youth beneficiaries.

The visit concluded with the volunteers and children having dinner together and the presentation of donations which consisted of essential items such as rice, canned food, and other daily necessities.

The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Project was organised by YSMOU to cultivate volunteerism and develop the spirit of giving, serving, caring and sharing among its youth.
