The Children’s Joy Foundation, Inc. (CJFI) inaugurates its state-of-the-art three-storey CJFI Residential Care Center at Purok 8, San Miguel Drive in Brgy. Indangan, Buhangin District in Davao City today, April 28.
CJFI founder Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy said, “I’m overjoyed, thanks to the Almighty Father. We can accommodate more destitute children, investing in their future to become active contributing members in the community and in the country. This is a small endeavor to help these children. I’m very happy. This is only the beginning, this is not the end.”
Pastor Quiboloy led the groundbreaking ceremony of the multi-million facility last May, 14, 2015. The project was contracted by CJF Canada to accomplish charitable activities in line with its advocacy to support marginal Filipino children in the Philippines.
CJFI executive director Rosemarie Navallo-Dimagnaong has considered the new residential center as the mother of all CJFI residential centers in the country on terms of amenities and services.
Amenities include a mini-library, playroom, computer laboratory, social activity area, clinic, isolation room for sick client, a room for person with disability or PWD, counseling room, and observation room for client with emotional and psychological concerns. The residential home also has spacious dining room, fully air-conditioned bedrooms that boast of a world class unique design, furnished with child-friendly compact beddings installed with individual closets.
The shelter is also equipped with a 24-hour monitoring closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras and perimeter fence since security is a top priority for a residential center.
The new facility is one of the six (6) child care residential centers in the Philippines that address the needs of poor children. CJFI is fully committed to its partner CJF Canada and the government of the Philippines through DSWD to sustain the project for its designed purpose as a residential center for destitute Filipino children.
