In line with the 79th Armed Forces of the Philippines Anniversary Celebration the 5th Civil Relations Group, CRSAFP have conducted an activity dubbed as “Salute to the Troops: A Mini-Concert and Static Display” yesterday, December 10, 2014 at NCCC Mall of Davao featuring the “Fireball Band” from 25th Infantry Battalion (25IB) of the 10th Infantry Division (10ID).
A static display was also showcased to promote the image and virtue of the AFP through the means of entertainment by reaching the community and showing the other face of the AFP which is more concern on peace and development efforts for the community.
Along with this is the “Human Rights Consciousness Week” which also adheres mainly on the protection and preservation of the rights of the people. It doesn’t necessarily mean that we are only going to abide in these rights during this week-long celebration but we have to bear in mind that preserving the rights of our fellow Filipinos is a mandate that we need to follow.
The “Gift-Giving Activity” was also present wherein this group has chosen the Magsaysay Elementary School, Marilog District, Davao City to be the beneficiary institution. This is to give love and assistance to our needy children in the far flung areas which they can use on a daily basis such as the three hundred twenty seven (327) slippers, three hundred (300) books and seven (7) large buckets of biscuits courtesy of this unit.
Also, part of the activity is the Jollibee treat for the children since it was their first time to step in the City and it was also their first time to dine in Jollibee. You can visibly see in their countenances the picture of unfathomable joy that even for once they have experienced such immeasurable delight.
Undeniably, the feeling was rewarding upon seeing this elementary students take plight to even the simplest thing the AFP have offered particularly the 5CRG, CRSAFP who made this activity possible to this chosen young generation.
This activity is also in commemoration of our soldiers who rendered extraordinary sacrifice for the betterment of our country. The activity intends to amuse the audience by giving a break to our hardworking soldiers from their hazardous and stressful working days. The main objective of this tribute is to acknowledge and show gratitude for the service and sacrifices of our Filipino soldiers.
Be a channel of blessing to each and every one. Happy Human Rights Consciousness Week! Mabuhay 79th AFP Day! And a Merry Christmas to all!
