ERDA has been fortunate to have the Les Amis des Enfants du Monde (AEM – Friends of the Children of the World) representatives in the beginning of 2018. For seven (7) days from January 11 – 17, Dr. Michel Abely and Ms. Brigitte Benichoux (AEM Philippine Team) and Alexandra Poteau (AEM General Coordinator) visited ERDA and its programs in the ERDA covered areas.
Barbara Lesseigne, a nurse from Belgium, visited and interacted with people from the different areas of ERDA. She saw in these areas the situation of the children being supported by ERDA.
ERDA has received blessings that were shared to the children during the Christmas season. Through the activities and gifts, the ERDA friends were able to put smiles in the faces of the children. ERDA would like to thank you all.
The ERDA children and parents gathered in one of the most awaited activity, the PaLiGSining 2017 held on Nov 30 at the Occupational Safety and Health Center, Quezon City. Continue reading Children’s Talents Shine at PaLiGSining
For School Year 2017-18, ERDA welcomed additional sponsors who were former ERDA beneficiaries and long-time friends of Fr Pierre Tritz, SJ and the Foundation.
ERDA remembered Fr. Pierre T. Tritz, SJ, ERDA Founder, in different ways. On Sept. 10, several ERDA staff went to the Sacred Heart Novitiate to attend the Mass celebrated by Fr. Manolo Montesclaros, SJ; say personal prayers at the cemetery; and break bread with one another. More staff came back to the Sacred Heart Novitiate on Sept. 19, Fr. Tritz’s birthday.
The ERDA Updates Special Edition for May – June 2017 was for the friends of Fr. Tritz, SJ and partners of the ERDA Foundation. The ERDA Communication and Social Marketing Unit was also happy to prepare the ERDA Updates Special Edition for July – August 2017 for the student volunteers and partner schools of the Foundation.
