An indicator of a truly humane society is how we care for the vulnerable elderly.
Kanlungan ni Maria Home for the Aged, Inc started operations in 2002 as a project of Bp Crisostomo Yalung, D.D. Today it is managed by the Diocesan Sisters of the Holy Cross and cares for 21 elderly men and women who were formerly destitute and abandoned.
A donor from North America had sent TYF a large balikbayan box packed with food items, some of which -- spaghetti, pasta sauce, tinned chicken, tuna, and fruits -- were given to Kanlungan ni Maria. Once a month they celebrate birthdays, and today's menu is pasta (smiley)
Our heartfelt thanks to our generous donor and the warmhearted team behind Kanlungan ni Maria.
