Laspel (Laskar Peduli Anak Negeri) was held by Society Welfare, AMSA-Unpad. This year’s Laspel concerned in the future goals of the unfortunate children, the children in SOS Village Lembang. SW was trying to point out that even with their limited condition, there always a possibility for them to reach their own future goals. One of the way to reach it is by maintaining their healthy lifestyle. To help them understand it, SW bridged them with children from SD Labschool UPI who is care about health and also their friends in SOS Village.
There were 5 main events of Laspel. The first one was publication in SD Labschool UPI and also lecture session regarding the topic. The second and third ones are mentoring sessions. The first mentoring session was about future goals and the second one was about healthy lifestyle. The mentoring sessions were wrapped in a fun and interesting way. They worked in a team and tried to solve the clues that were given. They also learned how to wash their hands properly, how to clean the bathroom, how to differentiate clean and dirty water, and so on. The last two events of Laspel were the closing in each school. In SD Labschool UPI, we played games together in a day and there was also a seminar by a doctor for the parents of the children. In the closing event in SOS Village, we invited the children of SD Labschool to SOS Village, where they played together and they also reviewed together all the lessons that have been given. They also wrote down their future goals and hopes in a paper and hung it in the Tree of Hopes.
There was also a Megabaksos where we gave things that are needed by SOS Village, like stationaries and school bags. We also gave them basic medical stuffs like thermometer, scales, etc.
It was tiring to meet so many kinds of children with different characteristics. But it was covered by the fun and excitements to play with them! We hope that every mistake that happened in this project can be a lesson for the upcoming projects, and we hope that the upcoming projects will be so much better
