TABON-TABON, Leyte, Feb. 12 (PNA) — “Dreaming something is not easy, achieving that is even tougher, but if they believe that something needs to be done, they work for it,” advised Ignasi Vegas, founder of GIANTS, a US-based organization that provided inspirational toys to children in typhoon-affected schools in Leyte.
The group distributed about 2,000 toys in 10 different areas of the province through their local partner Philippine Toy Library and the provincial government of Leyte represented by Vice Governor Carlo Loreto.
Vegas said dreams may not all be fulfilled “but if we fight hard we are able to succeed. Just like this project, no one believe us that we can do this but we are here. And that is more than happy for us which encourage me to do something bigger.”
Kindergarten learners from 12 schools in nine towns and one city in Leyte were recipients of toy planes, helicopters, medical kits and kitchenware.
During the distribution of toys in Tabon-tabon town, it was announced by Philippine Toy Library that they plan to construct a building which will be used as a toy library in selected schools in this province. (PNA)
