QIMC president Cheryl Arnan-Ligutom said “We continue to aim towards our objective to let the children develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy and sharing.
We are likewise hoping that this event will promote a better understanding of the children with disability in an environment of equality, respect and acceptance in the community.”
“Partnering with Islands Souvenirs is significant because of its catchy statement on ‘I heart,’ which expresses our feelings — Quota International of Metro Cebu hearts SPED kids.”
Quota International of Metro Cebu and Islands Souvenirs believe in the importance of accepting SPED children and disadvantaged women in the society, understanding their limitations and supporting their needs.
