Winnie Castelo makes life easy for these kids with one document

It may just be a piece of paper, but it’s a huge help to these children.

Quezon City Councilor Winston Castelo visited residents of Barangay Batasan Hills with a mission.

He brought his wife Rep. Precious Castelo and staff from the local Civil Registry Office for a treat that kids wouldn’t appreciate until later in life.

“Did you know some children were born without birth certificates? Operation birthright ensures all children will have the legal personality and dignity as anyone else regardless of social status,” Castelo said.

He went on to distribute birth certificates to kids born into poor families for free.

It won’t be a pain anymore once they start applying for work and for government IDs as adults down the road.
