DARLA-10 share moments to remember with elderly

WEB DARLA1 photoA smile on their hearts and a glow on their faces were captured when the DAR Ladies Association (DARLA) of the Department of Agrarian Reform Northern Mindanao Regional Office (Region-10) visited the 14 elder residents of Saint Joseph’s Golden Home Foundation Inc. in Nazareth, Cagayan de Oro City recently.

The DAR ladies brought food and personal hygiene items for the residents as well as kitchen utensils and bathroom supplies based on the wish list the foundation staff provided.

Despite their advanced age and declining health conditions, the residents entertained the visitors by singing and dancing, their way for saying “thank you” to the DAR 10 team headed by Asst. Regional Directors Teresita T. Depeñoso and Eliasem P. Castillo.

“Although this is just a small help, this program is a way of giving support to the less-privileged Filipinos in our own simple way,” Depeñoso said during the program.

“This DAR project aims to, at least, make the aged people happy.” ARD Castillo said. In promoting its advocacy, the DARLA has been active in responding to the needs of women, men, and children who are beneficiaries of its outreach program. This is done regularly through the provision of grocery items, clothing, medicines, personal gender packs and school supplies. The DARLA also conducts Christmas salu-salo, a feeding program for a number of its beneficiaries.

“Aside from the elderly persons, we also visited the Malisa Home, an institution for abused children and women in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental,” explained DARLA-10 President Mabel Loyola.

“The DARLA’s outreach program has expanded beyond the financially challenged families in Macanhan where the DAR-10 Regional Office is located,” Loyola added.

Through the DARLA, the DAR-10 also provided medicines, clothing, financial assistance, and grocery items to the DAR employees in Tacloban, who were victims of Typhoon Yolanda. DARLA also extended financial assistance to the earthquake-stricken DAR staff in Bohol.

In its various activities, DARLA has managed to gather support from other sources. “Aside from the regular fund allocation from the DAR’s Gender and Development (GAD) Program and DARLA funds, other public and private institutions and some DAR employees also donated in kind for our outreach programs. For these, we will always be thankful,” Loyola said. (DM Bacayan/ER Salvador)
