Despite all the hardships and trials of life, the Godines family still makes every effort to live a peaceful life in their community along with friendly neighbors in the province. The family dwells in a house made of purely light materials such as bamboo, coconut wood and round timber. They get water from a well. Electricity is available in their and they use firewood for cooking their food. To support the family, Markin, the father, is working hard as a driver. The family income is approximately at $88.00 each month. Such amount remains to be small compared to today's high-priced goods. Though deprived from so many things in life, the family still lives happily with one another. The Godines family is a Roman Catholic believer and Visayan is their dialect. The family joined the program in hope that its services and programs will help alleviate their present living condition. Meca Ken is the only child of the couple that give them joy and happiness. She is not yet in school since she is still very young. She is a healthy toddler and most of her time spend in eating, playing and sleeping. She loves to chocolates.
It’s a great way to create a bond between someone who’s
special to you and a child who will welcome his or her friendship and support.
