ZAMBOANGA CRISIS: THERAPEUTIC SHOW IN ICES JUMBO @ SEPTEMBER 2013

With the Zamboanga Crisis, several evacuation centers have sprouted as the number of evacuees have escalated to more than 120,000 people. We see how depressing their life has become as basic resources become more elusive.
The Archdiocese Social Action Group headed by Director Fr. Alain Ruiz and Sr. Ces developed the THERAPEUTIC SHOW as a way to help in sharing joy with the evacuees... some kind of Stress Debriefing!
One of the Evacuation Centers is the Immaculate Conception Elementary School and here are some scenes:
washed clothes all over the grounds

Such sincere smiles in spite of the Crisis!
I'd like to share some photos taken during the show at ICES Jumbo on Day 13, all taken by Fr. Elmer Sumile. Fr. Elmer is also using his talent in photography to be able to share the message of hope and inspiration! 
Fr. Jude Duncombe, ICES Director welcomes everyone.
Here are the performers who made them happy! Comedians: Dana and Company
