On April 4, 2022, the Metropolitan Naga Water District (MNWD) turned over the proceeds from its Christmas Tree Donation Drive dubbed, “Pagkasararo asin Pagbangon”, to its chosen organization – Integrated Services for Girls and Women in Crisis, Inc. (ISGWIC, Inc.). The collected donations were used to buy groceries and other essentials, as requested by the said beneficiary. ISGWIC, Inc. is represented by its Program Director, Sis. Francia Blando, and Home Directress, Ms. Shie Buenaobra.
ISGWIC, Inc. or Hablondanawi is a social work agency, established in 1993 and is administered by the Good Shepherd Sisters of the Congregation of Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd. It caters to girls and women who are victims and survivors of domestic violence. The agency aims to provide holistic services that respond to the needs of girls and women in crisis; to ensure appropriate reintegration to the community; and provide outreach services as measures to prevent abuse and violence. All of these, in order for the victims to realize their worth and dignity as God’s children.
Giving back to the community and practicing the value of sharing is one of the things that MNWD holds most important. The District believes that there is always something more to contribute than its basic services, and that sharing requires no amount of money but compassion and love to your community. (YMMSavilla)
