ORMOC CITY – Continuing the tradition observed every Christmas season, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte 4th District Engineering Office (DEO) conducts an outreach program with the theme: “Give the Gift of Love This Christmas”.

Contributions were made by the Leyte 4th DEO employees in an effort to support Rosemary’s Home of Hope and Hayag Charitable Association which are havens for abandoned children, the Ormoc Holy Family Foundation, which provides assistance to the elderly, and the City Social Welfare and Development Office, which targets the welfare of out-of-school youth.

OIC-District Engineer Rosita A. Tinawin and OIC-Assistant District Engineer Peter Scheler V. Soco spearheaded the donation of a range of essential items, including canned goods, medicines, sacks of rice, kitchen needs, hygiene kits, wheelchair for the elderly, and school supplies for the children.

The DPWH – Leyte 4th DEO aims to inspire through such acts of kindness and highlight the inherent value of reaching out to those less fortunate. The act of giving goes beyond meeting immediate material needs; it nurtures a sense of community, compassion, and goodwill. (PR)
