THE City Government of Cagayan de Oro and the House of Hope Foundation Inc. signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) on May 19, 2023 for the continued operation of the House of Hope Custodial Psychiatric Care Facility.
The facility is used to help in the proper care of mentally challenged patients in the city.
Under the MOA, the City Government will provide an annual financial assistance worth P3 million and allow the Missionary Congregation of Mary (MCM Sisters) to continue using their convent, which is located inside the House of Hope Custodial Psychiatric Care Facility compound, and to continue their apostolic and missionary duties.
The City Government will also provide personnel to take care of the clients of JR Borja General Hospital.
"The City of Cagayan de Oro will not just provide facilities, for we will provide hope and we will constantly get up," said lawyer Chit Leonelle Isaiah Bañas, who represented City Mayor Rolando "Klarex" Uy during the MOA signing.
"This is so important to us, and we want you to witness and be part of whatever it is that Cagayan de Oro and the House of Hope Foundation will achieve in the future," he added.
The agreement was signed by Bañas and Mgr. Jose Alan Pulgo, chairperson of the Board of Trustees, at the Cronin Hall in Cathedral Compound.
