PAUW – UP Visits the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center and Plans to Form an RA 9003 Compliant Academic Community

PAUW UP Garden Club members and CRL Women's Guild Mayana Club members with CRL officials & friendsLast August 2, PAUW – UP members toured the estate and observed how their MRF operates efficiently, processing novelty items, bags and deco materials in the process. The informal meeting of ZWRM Phils. Foundation Inc. officials and PAUW – UP Pres. Menchu Pascual resulted in an agreement. PAUW – UP Diliman is to host a convention with them that should radically change views about garbage and significantly form a community that will be RA 9003 compliant.The visit to the University of Perpetual Help Medical Center was made possible by the gracious Mrs. Daisy M. Tamayo.
Meanwhile the PAUW – UP Garden Club in cooperation with the Church of the Risen Lord Women’s Guild Mayana Club is currently holding a series of lectures. Last July 26, a lecture-demo about “Unfamiliar Local Vegetables for Food” was given. Participants had a taste of Talinum paniculatum salad and stewed Sandoricum koltjape among other recipes.More lectures about the function of MRFs in maintaining productive gardens are to follow. The photo above shows participants during the July 26 lecture led by Prof. Glo Caccam (seated, 3rd fr. right) with Nedy Simpas and Bishop Jessie Suarez. Also present during the activity were Cathy Q. De Leon (seated,2nd fr. left) with Church of the Risen Lord volunteer administrative official, Miles Ganaden. Pastor Bart Kimwell is standing at the far right of the photo.

Right after the visit to UPHMC in Las Pinas, PAUW – UP members & Zonta Manila members with Pres. Menchu Pacual planted more trees in the Diliman Campus. Micro – watersheds and clog – free river systems in many ways, define flood prevention in this volatile part of the region.


About cathydeleon

I was a student of the late Constancio Bernardo and Jose Joya. I also had the privilege to have Rod Paras Perez, Napoleon "Billy" Abueva, Romeo Mananquil, Rafael Asuncion, Virginiaflor Agbayani and Lito Carating as my mentors. Larry Alcala's work at the Commission on Audit was done with a little help from me and another fine arts graduate. It was as well a privilege to meet many well known Filipino artists like Juvenal Sanso, Nena Saguil, Cesar Legaspi, Ang Kiukok, Onib Olmedo, Boy Rodriguez, Norma Belleza, Jerry Araos, Fred Baldemor, Esmeraldo Dans, Dave Aquino, and many other equally prominent visual artists. After a few years of working in a gallery, I took up graduate studies and finished my M.A. degree. Consequently I took up Philippine Studies (Philippine Society and Culture). The course was a consortium between the UP Asian Center, UP College of Social Sciences & Philosophy (CSSP) and the College of Arts & Letters (CAL). I finished my Ph.D. degree a few years ago.
