Guided with the theme, “A decade of breaking pathways for empowered, resilient, and faith-driven Augustinian-organized communities,” the Sto. Niño de Cebu Augustinian Social Pastoral Foundation Inc. (SNAF) celebrates its 10th anniversary today, December 10, 2019 at the Colegio del Sto. Niño (CSN), Cebu City.
“Inspired and more driven to continue working [for] SNAF,” were the words of Rev. Fr. Aladdin P. Luzon, OSA, SNAF’s Executive Director.
SNAF marked its 10th year with a ‘Dinner in Solidarity with Kan-anan ni Niño Beneficiaries.’
More than 100 individuals participated in the activity and were able to receive presents from the organization.
Kan-anan ni Niño- a soup kitchen & drop-in center for the needy- is among the accomplishments of SNAF which started in 2016.
Fr. Luzon said that the program is an entry point for the relocation of the homeless families in Dumanjug, Cebu where a Climate Smart Village has been initiated by the Augustinian Province of Sto. Niño de Cebu- Philippines.
Another milestone of SNAF is its socio-pastoral activities in Kinatarcan Island, Sta. Fe, Cebu which was devastated during the Typhoon Yolanda.
Moreover, SNAF also implemented projects namely the 6th National Archives Congress in 2018 and the Heritage Project in 2019, both were funded by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).
For the past decade, SNAF has been true and committed to its mission and vision- to enable Augustinian-organized communities, especially the marginalized sectors and children, improve their quality of life and safeguard the environment.
