Keeping the boredom away: Elizabeth Home gets creative through awareness jingles

As the second installment continues with our young girls of Virlanie Elizabeth Home, the girls remain active during these trying times by squeezing their creative juices further. Aside from their viral video where they choreographed a dance cover from the song Pag-ibig ang Hihilom sa Daigdig (Love will Heal the World), their activities continued to build up their relationship with each other, and to keep the boredom away during quarantine.

The Jingle Making activity was held at Virlanie Elizabeth Home last May 18, 2020 for the acapella rehearsals

“As usual, the Elizabeth Home residents were divided into 2 groups. The activity is still about the pandemic that has been stifling our country until now,” said Riza Berdin, Elizabeth Home social worker.

The goals of the activity are to let the children understand why they need to undergo temporary quarantine during COVID-19; to spread inspiration to all front liners and essential workers who continuously give their services during this trying times; and to make the young girls active amidst the pandemic despite not having classes, and to prevent loneliness and boredom at home.

“In this activity, their imagination, creativity, and intelligence are challenge by composing their own music making the pandemic as their inspiration to work on it. We would also like to thank the non-residential staff members who supported us in this activity” Riza added.

The jingle activity was once again spearheaded by the Family Reunification Coordinator, Ms. Cristina Combo in coordination with the SiBuHi Coordinator, Ms. Sofia Dolly Alejandro, where she helped in providing musical instruments for the activity to maximize the creative efforts of the participants. Few Virlanie Personnel are also invited to serve as the judge of their works.


Supporting a Child’s Recreational Activities

Recreational activities are important for a child to develop their own skills and discover their purpose in life. They learn how to envision what they want to become when they get older, independent, and empowered. In Virlanie, you can support in giving recreational activities in so many ways. You can sponsor a child for a heartfelt experience of support to a Virlanie child. You can also purchase a digital voucher through Lazada and Shopee, you can also Fundraise to express your support to a Virlanie child and become a long time Virlanie partner.
