Written by: Farina S. Dy
In celebration of the World Milk Day, the National Dairy Authority - Central Visayas Department (NDA-CVD) held a milk feeding activity on June 1, 2018. The activity benefited around 250 children who are among the informal settlers residing at barangay Guizo, Mandaue City, who lost their homes in a fire and have temporarily resettled on the grounds of what was once the Cebu International Convention Center.
The celebration was held with the help of Mayor Luigi Quisumbing of Mandaue City, through the Mandaue City Social Welfare Services Division (MCSWD), under the leadership of Mr. Jessie Perez. The MCSWD provided for the pandesal and hot lugaw, while the NDA served the milk and distributed coloring books and crayons to the children as well.
In the afternoon, the NDA conducted another World Milk Day celebration at the Ubay Dairy Multiplier Farm in Ubay, Bohol where some 200 children were also given fresh milk and coloring books.
