Bahay San Rafael Support Program
RY 2007-2008
Barangay Salaban, Amadeo, Cavite

[RY2004-2005]  [RY2003-2004]

Celebrating Rotary International's World Interact Week from November 3-9 during the leadership of then President Gabe Trias, the Interact Clubs of ILA Memorial School and Tejeros Convention (both sponsored by the Rotary Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone) visited Bahay San Rafael - Home for Special Children in Barangay Salaban, Amadeo, Cavite last November 8, 2003 to learn more about caring for special children with psychophysical disabilities. Founded by the Hospitaller Brothers in 1997, the Bahay San Rafael is home for abandoned children with cerebral palsy in Amadeo, Cavite.

The following year during the presidency of PP Nilo Nepomuceno, RC CEPZ together with then Rotaract Club of Cavite Export Processing Zone held a Christmas party for these special children.  What made our heart melt was when the Rotaractors sang a song entitled “MAY BUHAY PA” (There's Life Still), one of the children murmured loud along with them as if he understands the song.  What a hopeful sound from this child.

At present, the home is depended solely on volunteer works and donations from the community for their daily operation. A newly formed Rotary Community Corps - Volunteer Care for Special Children will enter into a Memorandum of Agreement with RC CEPZ for the proper supervision and implementation of all items purchased in this grant.To give more hope to these wonderful creations, we are inviting everyone to touch their lives with your generous contributions.  The Brothers in charged of this house need diapers, alcohol, cotton, oatmeal for the children’s consumptions daily. 

With the approval of the Matching Grant applied, RC CEPZ intends to uplift the living condition and assist in delivering the basic needs, health and well being of 10 children ages between 10 to 14 for a period of one year.

Through Rotary's public image program, RC CEPZ intends to create greater awareness on the plight of these children within the community. This project will also be posted in Rotary International World Community Service program for possible cooperation with clubs here and abroad.
