As part of the 24th Local Government Code, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region 3 held an outreach activity on October 16, 2015 at Munting Tahanan ng Nazareth in Mabalacat City, Pampanga.
Munting Tahanan ng Nazareth, chosen as the beneficiary of the charity contributions, is a home and shelter for the poor, surrendered and abandoned, mentally challenged, and people with special needs.
The activity started with a prayer and an inspiring message from the DILG Region 3 Management. Being aware of the health condition of the beneficiaries, the DILG-R3 staff took time to mingle and show love and affection to these special people by distributing sacks of rice, packs of instant noodles, canned goods and toiletries. They also had a fellowship dinner with them.
More than material things, the joy of the beneficiaries and the staff of Munting Tahanan ng Nazareth during the activity inspired the DILG-R3 personnel to continue serving the community.
