DEAF Inc. Laguna was visited by Joel and Carolyn Pedro. Together with their friends from church the Hapee couple spent quality time at the school.

Joel and his crew, including Hapee Freshfighter Garvo Lanete, ran a basketball clinic. For one day, the students had fun doing drills and scrimmage play. Carolyn on the other hand, took charge of the girls and conducted baking lessons with them.

It was a special treat for everyone that was there. In the end, it was more than about sports and cakes. It was a time of breaking barriers and forging new friendships.
