Some 450 children of persons deprived of liberty (PDL) in the Cebu City Jail Female Dormitory received presents from GMA Kapuso Foundation's annual gift-giving project.

A mother of a 12-year-old boy said she feels blessed to be with her son she had not seen in two years.

The mother and her son got into an emotional reunion.

The gift bags held toys, food items, hygiene kits, blankets, mats, mosquito nets, among other essential items.

The Cebu City Jail female dorm has over 700 PDLs, according to Jail Superintendent Stephanie Salazar, the warden, who made sure that the PDLs will be visited by members of their family most especially their children during the Christmas celebration.

The Philippine Army 53rd Engineering Brigade assisted GMA Kapuso Foundation and its regional coordinator, Amabelle Rusiana, in the transport and distribution of the said goodies.
