Empowering Children For a Brighter Future #AlbergusCSR

Founded in 1913, Asociacion de Damas de Filipinas, Inc. (ADFI) is a settlement house built to extend temporary dwelling as well as foster service for abandoned, neglected, orphaned, foundling and dependent children who are in need of special care. Since its establishment, the programs of the institution are geared towards providing a higher quality of life for all the children under its care.

Who are these children?

The children under the care of ADFI can either be referred by agencies such as the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), local government units and non-government offices or be accommodated as walk-in clients.

At Albergus, we believe that every child deserves a chance at life. As a part of our 40th founding anniversary as well as our Corporate Social Responsibility for this year, last June 27, 2017, our team spent the entire afternoon together with children and mentors of ADFI. Given the challenging environment and lives they’re in, we aim to provide these kids with the warmth and love from an extended family and support ADFI’s mission in serving disadvantaged children uphold their rights and interests through a loving environment.

Our team arrived at Asociacion de Damas de Filipinas, Inc. at 2:00 in the afternoon. Surprisingly, kids at ADFI already prepared a program ready for our team. The kids led the opening prayer before we started with the numerous activities lined up for that day.

The afternoon ended as Ms. Jen Ngan, Albergus Banquet Supervisor gave the closing remarks.

The smiling faces of the kids as we left Damas reassured that we did something valuable that day. These kids, at an early age, are introduced to overwhelming and vast crisis. Having that said, there are a lot of reasons why we felt the need to do something. Together with other settlement houses like Asociacion de Damas de Filipinas, Inc. (ADFI), let us all work together to restore the health, education, hope, and future of these children.
