A total of 30 child scholars of Unbound Manila from depressed areas in Malate, Manila and Mandaluyong City were treated to a day of cultural immersion and entertainment as the Consulate of the Republic of San Marino in the Philippines and the Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation, Inc. (CLFI) partner for a tour and story-telling activity at Museo Pambata.

Headed by CLFI General Manager Jonathan Batangan and CLFI Consultant Atty. Cesar Vidal who acted as storytellers, the event also featured a puppet show that depicted the story of “Yehey, May Pamilya Nang Mag-aaruga Sa Akin!”—a children’s book about adoption commissioned by the Consulate of the Republic of San Marino in the Philippines

Created and published in 2016, the book features the story of a puppy in a rescue home and relates the importance of having a family that is full of love and care than having material possessions.

A folk dance show from the Bayanihan Dance Group, a tour of the museum, games, and a feeding program for the participants were also conducted during the affair.

“Promoting the culture of San Marino while contributing to the welfare of Filipinos, especially children, has always been important to the Consulate here in the Philippines. This joint project with the Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation, Inc. and Unbound Manila definitely advances our goals and hopefully left a positive impact on the children that attended the activity,” Consul General of the Republic of San Marino to the Philippines and Cebuana Lhuillier President and CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier said.

The Consulate of the Republic of San Marino in the Philippines plans to continue the story-telling activity every other month for the rest of the year, tapping various organizations as partners and beneficiaries.
