Seventy five (75) pre-school children  were very fortunate to receive gifts from the DOLE and attached agencies. RD Kiel Guzman, ARD Jesus Elpidio Atal,  and representatives from the NCMB, POEA, PRC joined in the distribution of school supplies to pupils of Beckel Day Care on December 7, 2019. It was called “Gift of Hope” in celebration of the 87th DOLE  anniversary.

Officers and staff of DOLE and attached agencies converged and contributed in cash and in kind  for this affair.  This action is the first for the Region in celebration of the anniversary of the Department. “I felt very happy and light-hearted seeing these happy faces receiving these simple token. This undertaking is the very first in CAR and it will not be the last. We will be replicating this activity in the coming DOLE anniversary celebrations,” ARD Atal said.
