Kuya Harvard knows Ate Trissia well. He and friends planned a surprise for her in St. Rita Orphanage in Sucat, Paranaque after knowing she wanted to celebrate her birthday there. It was her third visit.

St. Rita Orphanage, originally known as HOME OF CHILDREN, has its beginning when the late Mother Carmen Alba, A.R., Superior general of the Congregation of the Augustinian Recollect sisters, conceived the idea of putting up a home for the less fortunate children: the orphans, abandoned and neglected children— that they be given their basic need (food, clothing, shelter) as well as proper guidance and sufficient preparation for a better future in life. Most of the young children they handle are left in the hospitals.

10 volunteer friends took the time to play a game, feed the children and give gifts. Though the kids were relatively young, they were full of happiness and energy. “It was the best birthday surprise gift ever”, Ate Trissia mentions.
