JAPAN - We, the Hakodate La Salle Mission Club, in 2016 decided to have a volunteer activity in aid of the Jaime Hilario Integrated School – De La Salle Bataan (JHIS-LS) in the Philippines. With that in mind we sold some charity goods, with the intention of devoting all the proceeds to Jaime Hilario school. We continue this volunteer project annually.
This year, our volunteer activity’s target is another Lasallian institution in LEAD, the Bamboo School in Thailand. We have the same project of selling some charity goods and then donating the whole proceeds to them.
The purpose of this project is to focus not only on those who are suffering and in need in our immediate surroundings, but also on those who are most in need around the world. We focus especially on children, who are supposed to be the future leaders of the world, so that they can develop a global perspective of being at one with others, especially those in need, and develop a Lasallian identity.
It is only normal that we should help the Lasallian family of LEAD. I feel that we need to appreciate others and continue to sow the seeds so that in the future, Lasallian students can become true Lasallian people after graduation. (Text & Photos: Mr. Deok Bosco Han)
