Emmaus Home of the Aged was established in 1984 by a Catholic priest in Malolos Bulacan Philippies aimed to provide a shelter for the poor, the elderly, and the sick.
The home has since thrived as a centre of love and compassion for and by the community. Current headcount is 78 residents and 15 volunteer caregivers.
Mom celebrated her birthday with the residents of Emmaus Home, spending an entire morning exchanging stories about their families they so terribly miss. We brought them boxes of coffee, milk, tea, crackers, biscuits, soap bars, shampoo bottles, toothpaste tubes, and toothbrushes.
Thank you very much, Jerome for coming with us to this charity event to give haircuts to our dear lolos and lolas at Emmaus Home! You never fail to support our charity events!
Some residents could move around on wheelchairs. There are also those who are tied to their beds due to old age and sickness.
A little chapel inside the home serves as a nice place for the residents’ daily prayers and a spot for them to gather around and chat with each other.
Happiest birthday po, Mommy! Am glad we could celebrate this special day with the residents of Emmaus Home!
A mother may be quiet but she’s a warrior and her prayers can move mountains 🙂
