Help Maytaraw Children

Let me share here my experiences as an organizer-volunteer of the first and second upland outreach missions in Maytaraw. In Maytaraw Primary School, there’s a classroom where teachers hold four classes, where you can hear the rumbling of the wild river below, where there is no electricity, the ceiling is dilapidated, the floor is flooded with rain, the slippers are full of mud, the chairs are almost broken, the chalkboards are cut into two, and the books are limited and some are obsolete. There, I met those children full of zest who have never eaten apples, hotdogs, marshmallows and longganiza prior to our visit and who just find comfort in the care and love of their heroic teachers. I cringe at the sight of them being left out, neglected, almost abandoned by the system. Perhaps, for some valid reasons they haven’t been reached by agencies for decades because of distance, accessibility, and danger. After knowing about the miseries of the pupils and teachers of Maytaraw PS and of the community, I went home more compelled to help them. The thought that their parents are not married, they are not baptized, and the sight of them crossing the wild river several times just to get to school is somehow haunting. I pray that more people will help us in this journey. I still believe in hope and humanity. May God provides.
