Bahay Aurora is a children’s home in the Philippines
The Philippines is a beautiful country but suffers greatly under the contrast of wealth and poverty.  The majority of the population live in poverty, the result of which being that 10% of the Philippine children are at the mercy of what a life on the street has to offer.  They do not attend school and are forced to earn their own money just to stay alive.  Many of them are homeless and sleep on the streets. They know nothing of the privileges of care and protection.  Bahay Aurora is a children’s home located in Baras offering shelter to such children.  In this website  you can read more about the workings of Bahay Aurora and how you too can help these children.

And she’s back!
21-08-2014 After few months, “Ate Melissa” a former volunteer of Bahay Aurora came back for a visit.

Except from a suitcase full of “stroop wafels”, the kids were surprised of seeing her parents together with Melissa.
Mr. Frank and Mrs. Iris painted bunches of smile in children’s faces. 
Melissa for another time, made the kids so happy seeing her after school sitting under the same old mango tree.

With lots of hugs, the happiness was visible in their actions. The kids really had a good bond with her as if she never left and it’s not the first time to meet her parents.  For a whole week stay in Bahay Aurora, they joined the kids with their various daily activities especially the exercise, dances and games every afternoon. And of course, to make their stay more memorable with the kids, they had a swimming outing and video-oke’ sing along afterwards. 

According to Mr. Frank, their visit was a worthwhile vacation because in return, they received joy from the kids which is indeed more than what they gave. And through this short visit, now they do understand why their daughter was that eager to go back in Bahay Aurora. 

The kids were so thankful of seeing her once again together with her parents. Full of gratitude, they made some cards for Melissa and her parents. Simple cards with meaningful messages dedicated for her compassion and sincerity of spreading all the love she has.

Until next time “Ate Melissa” & parents, welcome to the family!
