CS Cares group kicked off the new year by visiting our Aeta brothers and sisters at Sitio Pidpid. The long days of preparation finally paid off upon their arrival as the people in the community excitedly welcomed them with smiles on their faces.
CS Cares made sure that all families living in the sitio would benefit from the project. The team prepared grocery bags for the parents and even held mini raffles to make the event more fun and thrilling.
What made it merrier was the presence of another Cloudstaff club, the CS Outdoor group, whose members willingly dedicated their time to visit the people in the community. Andrea, a member of CS Cares Group shared her experience, “We had a few games with the Aeta children and gave them prizes from McDonald’s. Some of the children performed an interpretative song and even danced with us in their tribal costumes. It was their way of showing us their appreciation for our visit.”
Andrea added that the whole event was an experience worth sharing with our Aeta brothers and sisters. Though the CS Cares and CS Outdoor groups only spent a few hours at Sitio Pidpid, it was hard bidding their goodbyes to the community people.
The sacrifice of waking up early to meet the groups’ call time was all worth it. Indeed, it was a heartwarming encounter and the groups had received something worth keeping for a lifetime. As the saying goes, “For it is in giving that we receive.”
Cloudstaff continues to expand community programs and have a team dedicated to managing local charities. We are humbled that, in some small way, we have had a positive impact on the communities where we work.
