ROSALES — Priscilla Mae Moreno, a Grade V pupil of Guiling-Coliling Elementary School, could not contain her happiness when the Rosales Action Group (RAG) conducted a supplemental feeding in her school on Sept. 9.

With her frail body frame which was almost visible in the stage, she expressed her thanks to the group for choosing the school as the venue of the feeding program.

“Kami ay lubos na nagpapasalamat sa inyong tulong. Ang feeding program na ito ay makakatulong sa aming mga mag-aaral upang maging malusog, masigla at tatalino,” she said.

Priscilla Mae is one of the 164 beneficiaries of a feeding program conducted by the Rosales Action Group in coordination with the Abono Party List. The beneficiaries were from Guiling-Coliling Elementary School (132) and Pangawan Elementary School (32).

School Principal Mildred C. Espiritu also lauded the RAG for the activity saying program is a big help to the indigent-pupils of the school.

“There are school children coming to school without even taking their breakfast. Their parents usually leave their house early in the morning either to work in the farm and do small businesses in Carmen,” Espiritu said.

She added that the school has more than 200 malnourished school kids in 2008 but dropped to 132 this year.

She is optimistic that with the three months feeding program, malnourish incident among the pupils will be eliminated.

Joji Munje, 35, a mother of one of the kids, also expressed her gratitude to the Rosales Action Group. She said that the activity is a big help to them as mothers. “Mabibigyan na ng tamang nutrisyon ang aming mga anak.”

The RAG is a civic organization in this town composed mostly of Filipino-Chinese businessmen. The group engages in providing assistance to the people such as fire fighting and prevention, medical-dental mission and disaster assistance and management.

Operating on its tagline ‘I Volunteer to Save Lives,’ Vice Chair Roger Tan said the feeding program is their way of alleviating the lives of the rural folk of Rosales particularly school children who are either malnourished or undernourished.

“We will continue to do this kind of activity in partnership with the Abono Party List,” Tan said smiling while slicing a hard boiled egg to be put into a cup of arroz caldo.

RAG Chair Rosendo O. So said that they will also be providing ingredients for the arroz caldo during the three months period of feeding.

After the feeding activity, sacks of rice were turned over to the principals of the two school for the continuity of the supplemental feeding program.

Other members of the RAG who gamely scooped cups of arroz caldo and distributed them to the kids were: Danny Sim, Jong Sandoval, Wingly Ng, Jeremy Sua, Sherwin Siu, Ben Parilla, Orlan Molina and Jerry Sayat.
