Multi-Purpose Covered Court Donated To The Residential Care for Elderly and Differently Abled

A Service Project of the Rotary Club of East Urban

A Multi-Purpose covered court for City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD) Residential Care for Elderly and Differently Abled, JR. Borja Memorial City Hospital, Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City was inaugurated and turned-over last December 20, 2015.





✔ Provide Individual Cabinets
✔ Construct a Multi-Purpose Covered Court

Rotary Club of East Urban (RCCEU) has long been working with CSWD and JR Borja Memorial City Hospital for various service, medical and other community projects in the past years.
The Residential Care for Elderly and Differently Abled is a home facility that provides a safe and supportive environment for adults with developmental disabilities and cognitive challenges.

While CSWD is supported by our local government, our help as an organization, which is committed making a difference in our communities, will go a long way in providing learning opportunities and fun activities for individuals who need extra care and support.

This multi-purpose hall will be used for activities, gatherings, including trainings and seminars for the residents and staff – a much needed facility as they learn to socialize, develop functional skills and basic capabilities.

The project officially broke ground last September 1, 2015. This activity was graced by DG Leo and Lady Josie Ochia.

Turn-Over and Christmas Gift Giving

The project was completed in time for Christmas season – the season of giving and sharing. The RC East Urban ladies took this special moment to share graces and blessings to the facility residents during the official turn-over ceremony.

Spearheaded by our dynamic Club President Pres. Conchitina Borja-Lagonera, the Club hosted a fun-filled Christmas Gift Giving and Feeding activity. There were singing, dancing and games. Some of these elderly may be spending Christmas on their own. At least with this gesture of generosity, we would like for them to feel and experience the meaning of Christmas – sharing and loving.


“Give the gifts of time, talent, and knowledge to improve lives in communities across the globe. Through Rotary, we can take these gifts and make a genuine difference in the lives of others and in our world.”

– RI President K.R. Ravindran






Club History

The club started with ladies who were not just acquaintances but close friends. They decided to give meaning to this closeness, thus the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro East Urban was born.
