Also known as National School’s Maintenance Week, the Brigada Eskwela aims to bring together all the education stakeholders to participate and contribute their time, effort and resources to prepare public school facilities ready for the opening of the school year this June.

“This is not simply (about) attendance but the message here is we are preparing the school for the future of the children. I think the private sector also touches the hearts of everyone that we are doing this for we value education,” Department of Education (DepEd) XI spokesperson Jenielito Atillo said.

As early as 6 in the morning, the program kicked off and volunteers started cleaning up, repairing and repainting the school facilities.

Aside from the said activities, OB treated the 300 incoming students of the said school to a feeding program in the morning. It also conducted free medical check-up to 17 people and dental services to 41 individuals.

OB PROGRAM FOCUS
(as of August 1, 2015)

Disaster Response Program

Under its Disaster Response Program, Operation Blessing has a three-pronged approach: rescue operation, relief distribution, and rehabilitation.

Our trained staff and volunteers organize and coordinate rescue operations in disaster-stricken areas using our own equipment and tools. We distribute relief goods such as ready-to-eat food items, blankets, sleeping mats, toiletries, and clothing. Medical missions are conducted simultaneously with relief distribution efforts. We are also at hand to help the devastated community to start anew with rehabilitation work through our livelihood programs, clean-up operations and construction projects.
