Calabarzon police ladies club give aid to neglected senior citizens, abused girls
The wives of Calabarzon police officials have reached out to the community and provided help to disadvantaged sectors.
The PRO4A Officers Ladies Club headed by Josephine Yarra and the Rizal OLC headed by Maybelline Baccay recently held an outreach activity along with the Regional Community Affairs Development Division and Police Community Affairs and Development Unit.
They visited the Tahanang Balik-Alay, a shelter for neglected senior citizens, and the Tahanang Sta Luisa Inc., a recovery center for sexually abused girls.
They provided the elderly residents with grocery items such as milk, sugar, biscuits, sacks of rice, laundry products, bath soaps, vitamins, energy drinks, and adult diapers.
They also distributed fast food meals.
Yarra, in her message to the senior citizens, said she understands the difficulty of their situation and hoped the ladies’ group has been able to ease their burden a little.
“Hindi po madali ang sitwasyon ninyo, walang tao ang gusto kalimutan na lamang ng kanilang mahal sa buhay. Kung kaya naman po napili namin kayo upang bigyan ng kunting tulong at mapasaya sa araw na ito. Sana po ay nakapagbigay kami ng mga ngiti sa inyo sa araw na ito. Panalangin po namin na manatili kayong malakas at malusog, at kami po sa PRO 4A OLC ay tutulong sainyo sa abot ng aming makakaya,” she said.
At the Tahanang Sta. Luisa, the ladies’ clubs provided hygiene kits, school supplies, and grocery items.
Yarra sympathized with the girls and urged them to remain strong.
“Walang salita ang makakapagpagaan sa nararamdaman ninyo ngayon. Ano man ang napagdaanan ninyo sana ay manatili kayong matatag. Sana ang aming pagbisita sa inyo ay makatulong at ma-inspire kayo. May magandang kinabukasan na naghihintay sa inyo. Kumapit lamang kayo sa Panginoon,” she said.
