Operation Blessing and Superbook Reached Out to Earthquake-affected Communities in Mindanao

In light of the series of earthquakes that occurred in Mindanao last October, Operation Blessing (OB) and Superbook reached out to the affected communities of Davao City and North Cotabato through an early Christmas surprise.

It’s hard to imagine celebrating Christmas without gift-giving, so Gizmo joined Operation Blessing’s Holiday of Hope and Cheer to give smiles to the children from Kindergarten to grade 6 in Malagos Elementary School, Davao City. A Superbook episode was shown, plus fun and exciting games!

Early Christmas packs containing plastic food containers, face towels, a pair of socks, bubble maker toys, and sheets of pad paper were distributed. Superbook coloring books and lanyards were given to the kids.

But then, those gifts were nothing compared to the greatest gift the children received—Jesus Christ! The students accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

When Gizmo came out to the stage and greeted them, everyone screamed their young hearts out! He joined the kids and teachers as they sang and danced “The Salvation Poem”.

In partnership with Unilever Philippines, OB gave hygiene kits to the families currently staying in evacuation centers of Barangay Malabuan, which was one of the areas in Makilala, Cotabato that was severely affected by the Mindanao earthquakes in October.

“We don’t only do business,” Jacob Berberio of Unilever Philippines shared. “We also take care of the people. We always do our job with purpose. We’re just here to help, as our way of giving back to the (people) that we served.”

OB AND UNILEVER PARTNERSHIP

People who received relief packages also underwent counseling and prayer time with the local church partners. They even prayed to accept Jesus in their life as their Lord and Savior!
