Making Children’s Day memorable for underprivileged children in Monterrey

Emanuella Christensen

In Mexico, Children’s Day is thought of as the second most important festival after the Christmas holidays. It is a time to honor and remember children and an opportunity for children to enjoy a day of festivities, presents, and special attention from their parents and families.

Rescate Children's Day Events

For Rescate, the month of April truly became “Children’s Month”, as “Children’s Day” (30th of April) was celebrated not just once, but four times in a series of events in Nuevo Leon and Chuahila for neglected and underprivileged children.

5,000 books for the children of Juárez, Mexico

Joseph Jones

We recently received a phone call from Antonio, an old friend of ours who owns a seafood restaurant. Because he grew up as an orphan, he has always wanted to help the orphans and those that were economically disadvantaged. He asked us if we could perform our clown and puppet show for the orphans and kids on the “Dia Del Nino” (Day of the Child) here in Mexico. He explained that he was able to secure a location for this event at Poliforo Juan Gabriel: a hall that could hold 10,000 people.

Books and teaching aids to low income Filipino schools

During Christmas 2011, our volunteers had the goal of helping at least 1,000 children from poor areas in Taguig, Phillipines. We contacted the DSWD (Dept. of Social Welfare) and discovered that there are 130 government run day care centers for poor children with approximately 10,000 children enrolled. So we went ahead and with the help of the DSWD and Barangay (town) officials we arranged two events in which four towns would be involved, with a total of 17 Day Care centers and around 1050 children.

Peru’s public school system faces pressing needs for proper educational resources. In order to meet this need, our volunteers have been promoting the Treasure Attic DVD’s; a series of live-action children’s videos which promote education and Christian values. Time and time again, we have seen the immense positive effects that this series brings about in the lives of children.
