Crayons, coloring books from Laguna Mayor Soriano aim to bring smile to Marawi kids

Jul 25, 2017 @ 12:12

In his own little way, Pakil, Laguna Mayor Vince Soriano is bringing color to the otherwise dreary lives of children caught in the middle of the Marawi City crisis.

The politiko accomplished such by giving donations of crayons and coloring books for Marawi’s student-evacuees.

Soriano noted how the ongoing skirmishes between government troops and occupying Maute Group terrorists have adversely affected the holding of classes in the city.

“Libu-libong mga mag-aaral ang lubos na naapektuhan ng kaguluhan sa Marawi city. Karamihan sa mga bata ay nagkaroon ng trauma,” wrote the Laguna town mayor on his Facebook to go with pictures of his humble contribution.

“Sa aking maliit na kaparaanan, makatulong po sana sa therapy ng mga bata ang mga crayons at coloring books na aking kaloob. Salamat sa JCI at nabigyan ako ng pagkakataong makatulong sa mga taga Marawi city,” he noted.

Maute members entered Marawi City on May 23. They have yet to be flushed out completely by government troops.

“After all,” Soriano added, “More than being a Pakileño/Lagunense, I am a Filipino. #BeBetter #PeaceIsPossible.”

Very well said, Mayor. #
