It is said that the more we share, the more we have. If that is truly the case, then the SFAL group must be one of the richest people in the world. As their sweat roll down their faces, you can see in their smiles and the glint in their eyes how truly wealthy they are. There is nothing more enriching than knowing that even for just one short moment, you have brought on a smile, a sigh of relief and even better, a memory to last a lifetime to someone who truly needs it.
The Sagunto Friendship Association London (SFAL), in addition to their building project, also sponsored a Christmas party for the children of Pilawan Elementary School which became, undoubtedly, a truly momentous occasion that these children will never forget. The preparations for this event started way before they boarded their flight home. All year leading up to this homecoming, they planned for their gift giving as they shored up their stock; buying a shoe here and there, some school supplies when it’s on sale, including some extra sweets and treats in their usual grocery lists to add to their stock pile, slowly filling up one balikbayan box after another just for the sake of seeing the smiles on these kids’ faces.
The SFAL group is to be commended for this outstanding project. Enjoy the photos they have shared so that we too can experience the joy they felt in their giving.
