Scuba Diving Camps
In 2017, DFH organized two Integration Diving Camps – Palau (July 2017) and Cebu (December 2017), involving a total of 7 students and their families as well as 8 volunteers. The camps aimed to provide an opportunity for the autistic students to communicate with others and integrate better into society. By allowing the students to experience the peacefulness and joyfulness of scuba diving, our goal is to help them to build up their courage and provide a way to help them overcome any difficulties they may face.
