In the spirit of Bayanihan, we remain committed to supporting our community during these challenging times
Bayanihan has been identified as an ancient Filipino custom which symbolizes the Filipino spirit and is a fundamental aspect of Filipino culture. Derived from the Tagalog root word bayan, it refers to the spirit of communal unity, work, and cooperation in order to achieve a common goal.
Hospicio de San Jose, the oldest social welfare institution in the Philippines, has served as a haven for orphans, homeless, the abandoned, those with special needs, and the elderly for more than two centuries.
Located in Manila on Isla de Convalecencia, a small island in the middle of the Pasig River, the facility is now running low on supplies due to its lockdown and is requesting assistance from the public.
Hospicio de San Jose is managed by the Sisters of the Daughters of Charity and currently home to 226 residents. Their immediate needs include food, as well as diapers and milk for the babies and the elderly.
