A total of 190 day care children in Mandaluyong City today received "school kits" from the State of Qatar through the Office of the Vice President and the Department of Education in a ceremonial turn over at the city hall.

Vice President and Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Sara Duterte led the distribution of the school kits and was joined by Mandaluyong City Mayor Ben Abalos, Vice Mayor Menchie Abalos, Ambassador of the State of Qatar Dr. Ali Ibrahim Al-Malki, and Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Benhur Abalos.

The school kit is a drawstring bag filled with notebooks, a pencil case, writing instruments, and a tumbler.
