The Philippine Air Force Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu selects Children’s Joy Foundation, Inc. (Cebu) as one of the beneficiaries of its Community Outreach last May 24, 2013 in time for PAF’s 66th Founding Anniversary held at its Kiddies Park, Brigadier General Benito N. Ebuen Air Base (BGBNEAB) in Mactan, Cebu where hundreds of children were invited to avail of free school supplies and dental kits.
PAF’s program theme: Masayang Kabataan, Masiglang Pamayanan come to life with the evident fun and excitement on the children’s faces as they enjoy the giant slides and various games at the fair which also offered abundant food.
Children’s Joy Foundation, Inc. beneficiaries are also regaled with stories and magic tricks, which they reciprocated with an equally magical and enchanting rondalla presentation. The Philippine Air Force officials noted that they have particularly chosen the CJFI kids among other beneficiaries because they wanted to show kids from different barangays and children’s institutions the possibilities of them being honed into talented and musically inclined individuals.
Present during the CJFI’s Rondalla Group presentation were PAF officials Col. Rummuell J. Perez, Director for Operation of 560-ABW; Brig. Gen. Edwin Manuel F. Remotigue, Wing Vice Commander/Division Commission and Col. Ernesto R. Milo, PAF Deputy Wing Commander of 560 – ABW.
Children inspiring fellow children—that is what CJFI beneficiaries are all about. CJFI Founding President Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy, who is the driving force and inspiration behind CJFI’s success in developing holistically excellent individuals also leads the foundation in celebrating its 15th Anniversary.
