When an act of kindness multiplies, it helps more people. Everyone can help, no matter how small or big. As long as it comes from the heart, we can persuade more people to help. Financial scarcity is not an obstacle to helping those who are in need.
Millions of Filipino children are facing hunger, and we know that hunger in the Philippines is one of our country's long-standing health problems. Kusina ng Kalinga (KNK) is Gawad Kalinga's (GK) anti-poverty campaign to end hunger among Filipino children. The community in GK Islam Village and GK Tanawing Pag-asa Barangay Griño Tacurong City is one of its beneficiaries, wherein we served nutritious hot meals to 325 children among the 6,076 kids that KNK is feeding in the country.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused a surge in coronavirus cases in Mindanao, leading to widespread hunger and affecting many families and children in the province of Butuan. To address this crisis, Kusina ng Kalinga opened a kitchen in Barangay Griño Tacurong City to provide nutritious meals for vulnerable children. We are grateful to our Nanay volunteers, who wake up early to prepare meals, and our partners who support our cause. Thanks to their efforts, we fed 325 kids at GK Islam Village and GK Tanawing Pag-asa during the pandemic.
Paka is one of the beneficiaries of the community kitchens in GK Islam Village and Tanawing Pagasa, Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat. He was raised by his Lola, and he, in turn, reared his Lola. Paka and his Lola eat nutritious meals from our kitchens for breakfast, and if there is leftover rice, they eat it for the evening. Paka gathers fruit from palm trees on weekends and sells it to help them survive.
This is Paka's weekly schedule. This is how many children's lives look across the country. Hungry yet gritty. Breadwinners from a young age, but life has taught them compassion and selflessness from a young age. And it is from tales like Paka's that we draw the power, fortitude, and hope we need to keep working to eradicate hunger and malnutrition.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who made this initiative a reality. Your selflessness has made a significant impact on the lives of 350 kids in GK Pagatpatan. May your kindness inspire others to join in the noble cause of leaving no child behind.
Currently, hunger is a serious issue, and it is getting worse. Make a difference by helping us fight hunger among Filipino children.
