LUBAO -- Children under the care of the Reception and Study Center for Children (RSCC) were the recent beneficiaries of the Quota International Pampanga's program for underprivileged children with the group providing food stuff, food supplements, equipment and hygiene kits in Barangay Prado Siongco here over the weekend.
Quota International Pampanga president Joycel Robles-Panlilio said that the event included a tour of the facilities of the RSCC and a discussion with the facility operators on how their group could further help in the operation of the facility.
"We would like to get a better understanding of the facility and how we could better help. We are also very concerned of providing some quality time to the children under the facility," Robles-Panlilio said.
