JER cluster donates laptops to orphanage

The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for underprivileged children, who lack access to adequate resources and technology, to continue their education through remote learning. Tax Principal Jules E. Riego (JER) led his cluster in donating 20 pre-loved laptops to children from the Bahay at Yaman ni San Martin de Porres, Inc. orphanage in Bustos, Bulacan. The JER cluster also shared in the cost of the Microsoft Office programs installed in the laptops.

JER turned over the donations to Orphanage Director Fr. Florentino S. Concepcion on 22 September. He received touching letters from the children who expressed their gratitude, saying that the donations inspired them to study hard and achieve their dreams.

The orphanage is currently home to 146 children who are still in need of laptops and other learning materials. For more information on how to donate, please contact JER at jeriego@icloud.com.
