A Child’s Lament

It is every parent’s dream to see their children finish college and have a better future, and my mother was one of them. My father abandoned us when I was barely 5 years old and my brother 2 years old. We witnessed how my mother worked hard to give us a normal if not a comfortable life. Unfortunately, my mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had to retire from work. A mother as she is, she did not lose hope to give us the best education even she is gone. Out of her retirement benefits, she purchased two 5-year college exclusive plans for me and my brother. According to my Tita, who lived with us since my mother died 8 years ago, my mother chose PPI because of the name Yuchengco. Luckily, with the help of my maternal relatives, we were able to make both ends meet and I graduated from college last April 2005 in a non-exclusive school, not in an exclusive school which was the plan my mother got for us for the reason, that we have no other means where to get the additional fees and expenses in an exclusive school not shouldered by my education plan.

My brother who was supposed to enter college last year was forced to stop studying for we know our relatives can no longer afford to give additional allowance for both of us. It was our plan that my brother will enroll this June of 2005 also in a non-exclusive [school] so that we can use the difference of the amount to be paid by PPI (for his exclusive plan) and the remaining one year of my education plan for his allowance and other everyday expenses. I was hopeful too that I can find a job so that we can no longer be a burden to my relatives who had helped us since my mother died.

Last April, wben we heard of the rehab plan of PPI, my tears fell for my brother, and asked this question, Will the dream of my mother for us her children be a BROKEN DREAM? Hopefully not, we are still hoping together with the thousands of children affected by this fiasco, that the YUCHENGCO’s still have a HEART. continue praying for GOD’s DIVINE INTERVENTION.

Would like to thank the officers and members of the PEP Coalition for fighting for US. Special mention to Tita Chit, Tita Winnie and Mam Wynna, with their kind help my brother was able to enter college this year. Thank you so so much, may your tribe increase………..

  1. Sa apat na anak ko na sinikap namin na mabigyan ng magandang kinabukasan, halos ndi na kami kumain para lang mahulugan ang CAP nila. Napakasakit at halos masiraan na ako ng bait ng bigla na lang bumagsak ang kumpanyang CAP.

    Hindi kami pareho tapos sa kolehiyo mag asawa kaya pinilit naming 2 na mabigyan ng siguradong magandang plano ang mga anak namin sa pamamagitan ng College Assurance Plan. Nang matapos naming hulugan ang dalawang plan para sa 2 naming anak, makalipas ng isang buwan para kaming binagsakan ng langit at lupa.

    Bakit kayong mayayaman ang hilig nyong isahan ang mga mahihirap na katulad namin??
    Hindi pa ba kayo kuntento sa tinatamasa nyong kayamanan para pati ang inipon naming pang edukasyon sa aming mga anak ay inyo pang kunin??

    Napakasakit na makita namin na imbes na nasa paaralan ang aming anak ay ngayon ay nagtatrabaho.
    Imbes na naabot na nila ang kanilang mga pangarap sila ngayon ay nagpapakahirap mag ipon para sila ay makatapos mag aral.

    Ito na ba ang batas ng buhay?? Ang mang- isa ng kapwa?
    Ang manloko ng mahihirap na gaya namin? Wala kaming hinangad kundi ang marating ng aming mga anak ang hindi namin narating. Wala kaming inasam na makita ang mga anak namin na umakyat ng entablado sa kanilang pagtatapos.

    Sana, sa inyong mga taong walang puso na nagnakaw ng pangarap ng aming mga anak, makatingin kayo ng tuwid sa mata ng kapwa nyo. Makaharap kayo ng walang pag aalinlangan sa Panginoon sa pagsira nyo ng kinabukasan ng aming mga anak.
    Sana, makatulog pa din kayo ng mahimbing at makalunok ng inyong kinakain kahit alam nyong maraming magulang ang hindi ginawa yan masiguro lang ang kinabukasan ng kanilag mga anak.
    Sana, hindi maranasan ng mga mahal nyo sa buhay ang pait na pinaranas nyo sa amin.
    At, sana, hindi nyo maramdaman ang sakit ng makita ang inyong mga anak na halos magpakaalipin para lang makapagtapos sa kanilang pag aaral.
    Hindi natutulog ang Diyos. Alam Nya ang lahat ng ginawa nyo. Sabi nga Nya, “mapapalad ang mga inaapi sapagkat ang kaharian ng Diyos ay sa kanila”

  2. last month, it was all over Singapore that the facebook and yahoo accts of 2 prominent filipinos, Paul Monozca and Rico Hizon were hacked. Bad blogs and messages were fabricated and it was revealed last week that the culprit was Marco Yuchengco Santos, a grandson of ambassador Yuchengco. No one believed it at first as he was a friend to both gentlemen and a yuchengco at that but little did anyone knew he is wanted for a failed drug deal with the military in manila and he was a drug addict desperate for money to buy drugs. He has since fled overseas (I heard he is also looking for a job in Singapore) to escape the authorities. It was also revealed Marco Yuchengco Santos is responsible for hacking into RCBC bank, Malayan insurance and Pacific Plans when he worked for Mapua (handles all back-end needs of YGC) defrauding millions from its members. He uses bogus titles from companies that he set up which have already closed down or companies he was fired from: edsamail, touchmedia, IPVG etc. (being vice-chairman of non-existent companies)His modus operandi is to make his friends fight against one another via facebook or yahoo, including some family members and he would ask a fee to stop it. hayop sa racket! this is the yuchengco name we bought plans from?????????? all 34,000 of us

  3. please do not blame ambassador yuchengco for this, he is a good man. we should look into his grandson, mr. marco y. santos and the authorities for answers. i am sure with all the witnesses who have come forward, he has to answer for it

  6. Whether you choose silky, sheer and sexy, or embroidered ethnic style, the poncho can be adapted for
    all sizes and all occasions. Lady Gaga has always been in news but most of the time for the wrong reasons.

  7. Your vehicles group rating is the single biggest
    factor in determining the cost of your policy. If you run a business and
    you have a car, truck or van that you use for that business, you are going to want to make sure
    that you have the best possible insurance cover for it.
    It pays for costs of personal injury to drivers and passengers.
