Feed my sheep .... Dental mission ...International Women's Month
LVF Partner with LSGH Feed my Sheep Movement
LVF has partnered with La Salle Green Hills (LSGH)  Feed my Sheep Movement (FMSM) administered by Bro. Manny Hilado, FSC.1,100 kilos of Camote were distributed to 2,000  poor children and women from the LVF Child Protection Clinic (CPC)  areas and FMA youth centers.

How this  movement came about is an interesting story:- one of the students at LSGH initiated it after being touched by the words from scripture "feed my sheep" first uttered to St Peter centuries ago, which were spoken during the Gospel one day at Mass. The Priest's homily mentioned how many of our countrymen don't have enough to eat and he took this to heart and later at home asked his father if they could do something to help. His father owns farmland where Camote is grown and so he offered to give a certain amount each year to be distributed anonymously through  LSGH. It’s a beautiful inspiration and a timeless message, perhaps others could join in offering other produce...
LVF celebrates International Women’s Month in Luzon ,Samar and Leyte
More than 800 mothers from Yolanda-affected areas in Samar and Leyte as well as from CPC partner communities in Metro Manila and Youth Centers of the Salesian Sisters in Laguna took part in the celebration of International Women’s Month being initiated by LVF each year.  They were given formation on self-awareness, enhancing self-esteem and protective behavior for the prevention of child sexual abuse. Highlighted in these formations were the significant role that women play in creating gender-fair society by being active partners in nation building and proactive advocates of child protection in their own homes and communities. Meanwhile, a half-day session on Violence against Women (VAW) was also given by LVF Social Workers to more than 40 Parish Coordinators of the Diocese of Pasig, highlighting the role of the church and parish workers as first responders to cases of VAW. The session was intended to help the participants understand the different faces of VAW, how they will respond to disclosures of violence or abuse from parishioners and map-out their plan to end violence among women.
