New desks and chairs for CARE school in Cordova!

August 23, 2018 0 Comments

On Sunday August 19, the Rotary Club of Cebu East brought new plastic desk-chairs to the Cordova Alternative Resource for Education (CARE) school in Cordova, Cebu. The students had previously been sitting in severely undersized chairs, none of which had a writing platform.


Funding for the mission was provided by the Club itself, and special thanks goes to PP Alex Gaisano for his generous contribution.


As always, Teacher Maricor, who runs the school, was there to give us a warm welcome and to assemble her students. They certainly are enjoying the new chairs!


This project represents our first major field mission under President Derick Bulkley (2018-19), who himself played a large role in assembling the chairs.


A tasty meal of spaghetti was cooked by Racquel van Kessel, wife of past secretary Joop van Kessel. Her warmth and kindness are always much appreciated!


Here are some pictures from the event:
