Lamoiyan Corporation, a leading manufacturer of personal hygiene and home care products in the country, donates Php280,000 worth of Lamoiyan products to an Aeta community in Floridablanca, Pampanga in a recently held outreach event dubbed as Making the Invisible Visible.
Making the Invisible Visible. Volunteers pose with the Aeta community to say thank you to donors and patrons.
In partnership with North Sector 1 Singles Districts of Ligaya ng Panginoon (LNP), a Catholic community in Metro Manila, at least 700 Aeta families composed of a total of 3500 individuals received basic items such as rice and milk, art and sports materials for children, and hygiene products such as Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo and Hapee Toothpaste.
With the lack of health care access in the area, Lamoiyan Corporation aims to help the community alleviate the cases of tooth-related problems and head lice infestation among kids and adults.
Ercy Santos, a 14-year old scholar of Talaturu Ipus ning Mayap a Pastol (TIMP), a program of LNP in the community, said, “Masaya kami na makita at makilala kayo. Maraming salamat sa mga regalo ninyo sa amin ngayong Pasko.” (“We are delighted to see and meet all of you. Thank you very much for your gifts to us this Christmas.”) Ercy shared she wants to become a flight attendant and dreams to go to different places. “Nag-aaral akong mabuti at ayaw kong mag-absent sa eskwela dahil gusto kong makatapos ng pag-aaral.” (“I study hard and don’t want to miss school because I want to finish my studies.”)
For the past thirty years, Lamoiyan Corporation has been promoting personal hygiene. Aside from encouraging good oral hygiene, Lamoiyan is also advocating the correct way of treating head lice infestation, which is considered one of the most common health problems in school-aged children that sometimes cause them to miss school.
