For 165 Women Presidents of KDBM, “Alyana” in Dasmariñas City

March 8, 2015

Received an invitation from Dasmariñas City Welfare and Development Office Head Ms. Rosalita Abuan for the screening of ALYANA again in their city, this time intended for 165 Chapter Presidents of Kababaihan ng Dasmariñas sa Bagong Milenyo [KDBM]. In the afternoon, Barangay Nutrition scholars of the city will be the target participants of the Seminar on Early Detection of Autism.

It is a coincidence that they are holding it this March since the film is my tribute to Mothers of Children with Autism, and was originally targeted to be shown during the International Women’s Day years back.

The two previous screenings of Alyana according to Ms. Abuan “have inspired lots of women / mothers and public servants to become more loving, caring and understanding…” Touched by the film when it was first shown in the city, she surely must have seen, in fact, experienced the impact of the film herself. There was thus that immediate decision to re-show it to day care workers, and other interested groups. Because of the information and first-hand testimonials documented in the film, the day care workers for example, either confirmed some questions in their minds regarding children they are dealing with, or come to understand better those children so they would know what to do in case they encounter those who are likely having the condition. And with Jan Peña, Autism Society Philippines-Dasmariñas City Chapter president around with her son who wouldn’t get inspired? Ka-tandem kami uli…

The showing will be held on March 24, 2015 at Little Sunshine Day Care Center, Barangay San Simon.  The mayor of the city, Hon. Jennifer Barzaga will give her inspirational message to the participants.

Below is what they call their Time Plan:

  4. I’m pregnant and I don’t worry no more about my coming baby! I know God bless us in different ways and our children are the most wonderful blessing into our lives. Through Alyana, I become more excited of becoming a mom and it shows me what unconditional love is….how to care for our loved one even with/out disability!

  5. Salamat Shiela sa pagsuporta sa film at sa sipag nyo na mapalaganap ang kaalaman tungkol sa autismo… Sana nga magawa natin yung sa CP. Ilang taon na sa baul ko! Haha! Pero pwede ba wag nyo ko tawaging film producer? Masaya pa kong matawag na researcher…

  6. Happy to know that Alyana had shown you concretely what unconditional love is. I hope mothers of children with autism who are still in denial stage would realize that quickly….

    Take care! Pregnancy is quite a delicate stage… Your baby is so lucky to have you as his/her mother!
