A baby boy

After all the busy days and celebrations in the December month in Bahay Aurora, once again another celebration was added. It was the birth of the first baby of Norson and Joahnna. Joahnna was our social worker for 3 years and Norson was a child development worker for 7 years. They are both very happy for the birth of their first baby named “Nixon” a healthy cute baby boy. If you take a look at him, right away it will bring a smile to everyone. Mother and son are both doing very well. We, the staff of Bahay Aurora, the management, the board members from Holland and the board in the Philippines, and not to forget the children of Bahay Aurora, we would like to congratulate Norson and Joahnna from the bottom of our heart for the birth of their first baby Nixon. May the good Lord bless your baby as well as his mom and dad with good health, good luck and happiness now and in the coming future. Enjoy your baby boy!
Both Joahnna and Norson have resigned from Bahay Aurora. Joahnna because she needs to look after her baby. We want to thank you for your continuous support and love for the kids of Bahay Aurora and the loyalty we experienced as management. In those 3 years in Bahay Aurora you became a real professional and we wish you all the best in your future career. Norson has been working in Bahay Aurora for 7 years. From a schoolboy to a professional. It is good to change career after so many years of service and your still young so we believe your experience in Bahay Aurora will be beneficial to you in your future career. This is no goodbye or farewell from us since you are both family and part of the Bahay Aurora family so we can never part.
All the best and thank you both.


New Year’s eve

Many people unite on New Year’s Eve, which is on December 31, to celebrate a midnight meal known as the ‘Media Noche’. It is also common to stay awake to greet the coming of the New Year. New Year’s Day is also characterized lighting fireworks and making a lot of noise to drive away evil spirits. This belief originated from the Chinese.The elderly encourage children to jump at the stroke of midnight so that they would grow up tall. Many people display 12 circular fruits. It is also popular practice to open all the doors and windows at the stroke of midnight to let in the good luck.In Bahay Aurora we celebrate our New Year’s Eve by not using any of the fire crackers instead we turn on the sounds of maximum volume and the kids happily dance. We ate together and greet each other with love. We want to wish our loyal supporters a Happy New Year and thank you for your continuous support!

All the staff group the children into 3 and prepared them to join the contest the evening of Christmas party..they also do the fashion show with the clothes that Angelique Smidstra collected from Coolcats..every child recieved different style of clothes to be use to walk in the fashion show.
They cannot denied the excitement they have in their eyes..knowing that the clothes that they recieved to be use for fashion show will be for them. They can keep the clothes after the party.each and everyone proudly walk with their beautiful clothes
