Dualtech students helped care for the Aged in Calamba City
Dualtech students assisted Bahay ni Maria in Brgy. Sampiruhan, Calamba Laguna in August 2016. This home for the aged is managed by the Missionary of Sisters of Our Lady of Fatima for the abandoned elderly and children with special needs.
Dualtech Center wired and installed emergency lights and bells for designated areas and rooms.
After completing the installation, students spent some time of conversation with the abandoned elderly. John Patrick De Guzman, trainee-volunteer, shared “Gusto ko silang tulungan. Paulit-ulit nilang sinasabi na, pag wala na daw silbi ang tao, pinababayaan na dahil hindi na mapapakinabangan. Sobrang nakakalungkot ang pananaw ni lola sa buhay.” Patrick was inspired after meeting Lola Edna. “Sinabe ko sa kanya na isasama ko siya lagi sa aking panalangin at manampalataya sa Panginoon. Dahil sa naging experience ko dito, lalo kong mamahalin ang mga magulang ko.”
The activity allowed the trainees to see that even those who are being helped for lack of resources can help.
