The  Philippine National Police Regional Protection and Escort Unit 9 based in Camp Batalla conducted yesterday a food feeding outreach and distribution of clothes and toiletries at the Zamboanga  City Social Welfare and Development / Social Development Center Women Crisis Center in Sta. Barbara.

The beneficiaries were abandoned children from 7 to 17 years old, maltreated and neglected children, founding children, street children,with case in court, victims of sexual abuse and others.

RPSU 9 Chief Sr. Inspector Joseph B. Dioso said the outreach is part of the Police Security and Protection Group/ RPSU 9 community outreach program to enhance police and community development to help others most especially abandoned and less fortunate children and also  to encourage the community to help in crime prevention.

ZCWSD/ Social Development Center Women Crisis Center Head Grace T. Gregorio said that the beneficiaries are 71 children.

SPO3 Abdulhan Agga, RPSU 9 Community Relation Officer said that she and the troopers were so touched during the outreach because most  children are crying for happiness and  some also were suffering from mental illness but they notice their cheerfulness on the sharing of grace.

During the outreach, the atmosphere turned into a mini-concert. Children were so eagerly expressed thanks to the policemen without instructions from the head center or Director of a program, By impromptu they entertained the policemen.

A sexual abused girl rendered a song titled “ Do I have to cry for you” by Nick Carter. “Ama’t ina” rendered by Bogs. Another female child named Inda rendered a song by Aegis titled “ Basang- Basa sa Ulan”, Crisbella rendered a song titled “ Pusong Bato. A group of small kids danced with a broken choreography, another group of kids rendered a chorus rap songs.

Dioso told the kids to do good. “Do not do bad things. Salamat nakita namin kayo. We will do our best na gagawin namin  ito regularly para ma ka -share sa inyo,” Dioso said.- Allen Abastillas
