SAN NICOLAS, Ilocos Norte – Sadiri ti San Nicolas International-Hawaii Chapter, on Tuesday, December 11, sponsored a feeding program to 70 children in Day Care Centers (DCC) of barangays 10, 11, 12 and 13.

This was the organization’s initial feeding program but their family have been doing this regularly since 2010, said Phemy Rose Javier, treasurer of Sadiri.

“As one of the youngest members of Sadiri, my daughter Asha always do this feeding program in schools since La Casa de Asha was established in 2010.” Javier told in an interview. “This year, we decided to share what we have as an organization for the benefit of the youth of San Nicolas,” she added.

Javier recounted that, earlier this year, they also conducted feeding program at Asuncion Elementary School in Brgy. 17 Sta. Asuncion and at Apaya Elementary School in Laoag City.
