The Situation of Filipino Children and Young Persons …
We rarely notice them … well, some of us would, but not many of us!
In the Philippines, close to one  out of every three individuals live below the poverty line, while the country itself is in full economic expansion. Although this is encouraging for the future, the present situation remains bleak for a great many households.
A canvas such as this : a great painter JOEY VELASCO’s “Kambas ng Lipunan” is actually a very common scenario; yet, rarely would we take our eyes and heart on them on the streets, and so touchingly, even within our own classrooms. Not many of us would have the capability to identify who among our pupils/students are suffering from mental & health problems among other sorts of difficulties.
With the hope of opening our “sensitivity to the needs” of those who do not have all the strength and capability to speak up and to be bold and brave to ask for our help, may we now GRAB THIS OPPORTUNITY to make ourselves AN AGENT of CHANGE so that the less fortunate Filipino Children and Young Persons will not remain marginalized.
So, SHALL WE NOW TAKE THE CHALLENGE of PAINTING OUR OWN CANVAS? … why not?
Post your own canvas now and be THE JESUS in the midst of those needy souls who are looking up to us for relief. How then would your canvas be?
