P&A for a Cause (PAUSE) successfully launched its first-ever project last February 22, 2003 at the Municipal Hall of Gen. Trias, Cavite. The launching also provided the venue for the contract signing between and among Vice-Mayor Luis Ferrer of the Municipal Government of Gen. Trias, Ms. Raquel Ascano, Regional Director of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Jojo Agot, a member of P&AUSE’s Board of Advisers and Jing Villa-Real, P&AUSE Chair. It formalized the participation of P&AUSE as one of the main sponsors of the supplemental feeding of malnourished children. The project, dubbed as P&AKAIN, will be providing a hot meal per day plus milk rations to 30 kids with second and third degree levels of malnutrition for 6 months or until August 2003. The project’s beneficiaries, which were selected by the DSWD, came from Sitio Caimituhan, Barangay Pasong Kawayan II, Gen. Trias, Cavite.

With the supervision of social welfare workers, the parents of the beneficiaries, themselves, will facilitate the feeding program. In addition, DSWD will also teach the parents livelihood projects that will make them self-reliant.

Once again, P&AUSE wishes to extend its sincerest gratitude for everyone’s contributions and continued support, especially to those who were able to attend the launching.
