BJMP General Trias starts ‘PDL Wish Tree,’ encourages netizens to grant detainees’ Christmas wish list

2 Mins read

Support poured in for the ‘PDL Wish Tree’ initiative of J/C Insp. Bryan Villaester aiming to grant the wishes of detainees at the General Trias City Jail this Christmas.

In a Facebook post, Villaester shared that he actually started this program in 2016.

“I started the Wish Tree since I was assigned in Tagaytay City Jail way back 2016. I continued it in BJMP Naic and now here in BJMP General Trias – my 3rd Jail assignment,” he said.

He said that while the BJMP personnel are capable of granting some of the wishes, he wanted to encourage the community to participate and give them the sense of fulfillment of being instruments to granting someone else’s wishes.

Their wish list might seem simple for some but they mean everything to the PDLs.

“Personally kapag nakakabasa ako ng mga very simple wishes nila naiisip ko, this might be everything to them. Maliit na bagay sa atin pero napakalaking bagay sa kanila since cla po ay nakakulong at hindi nla nakukuha agad mga gusto nila,” Villaester said.

Some of the detainees’ Christmas wish list are basic needs like clothes, shorts, slippers, hygiene kits, and food.

“Ang wish ko po ngayong Pasko ay bagong set ng Blue Corner t-shirt medium size kahit 3 pcs. Luma na po kasi mga gamit ko, 3 years na po ako dito. Tsaka po 2 pc chickenjoy with extra rice at extra gravy! Merry Christmas po! Thank you and God bless,” one wish list reads.

Meanwhile, another requested for a book so he can continue learning while incarcerated.

“Ako po si Eugene. Hiling ko po sa darating na Pasko ay sana po ay magkaroon po ako ng librong almanac upang kahit andito ako sa pansamantalang tahanan ay madagdagan po ang aking kaalaman. Kahit po luma ayos lang po. Sana po ay matupad ang aking munting kahilingan. Maraming salamat po,” his note reads.

Villaester said those who want to grant some of the wishes can take a screenshot of the note and send the goods at the General Trias City Jail.
