FEATURE: Kris Library Gives Books and School Supplies to Kids Who Swim to School in Zamboanga City
Apart from building or setting up librares, Kris Library also gives books to public school libraries like Talon-Talon Elementary School for use by kids living in a mangrove community in Sitio Layag Layag, Zamboanga City.
Last August 6, Kris Library brought hundreds of reference books, textbooks and school supplies donated by the Kaisa Para sa Kaunlaran Foundation and the KIDS Foundation to the poor children of Layag Layag, who used to swim for about four hours to and from school daily.
The book and school supply turn-over was done in cooperation with the Tzu Chi Foundation in Zamboanga City and represented by Dr. Anton Lim; Jay Jaboneta of the Zamboanga Funds for Litle Kids; and the Rotary Club of Zamboanga City under Mr. Rikki Lim.
Earlier, Kris Library also gave thousands of books to children in Manicahan Central Elementary School, the Manicahan-Poblacion Elementary School and the Lamisahan Elementary School – all located Zamboanga City.
Likewise, Kris Library also gave books and school supplies to poor children in slum communities in Barangay Holy Spirit, Quezon City; and in schools in Quezon City and Malabon in cooperation with the ABS-CBN Channel 2 and GMA 7 News Programs.
