After a lifetime of dedicating their lives on their work, supporting their families and contributing to the success of the nation, senior citizens must be given admiration and great regard for securing the world we enjoy today. For the seeds that they have planted yesterday are sowed and enjoyed by the generation of today.

On September 30, 2021, the Regional Conciliation and Mediation Branch X (RCMB X) extended its helping hand to thirty – five (35) Senior Citizens of Sitio San Juan, Lapasan, Cagayan de Oro City. This was made possible with our partnership with Barangay Kagawad Aspirino Baconga and Sitio Senior Citizen President Joselito Pangca.

RCMB X prepared thirty-five (35) gift packs containing: vitamins, emergency medicines, face masks, face shields, alcohol, rice, canned goods and noodles. This small gesture of help gives great impact upon these people as evident by the warm smiles they gave as they receive their gifts.

Barangay Kagawad Baconga and Senior Citizen President Pangca were deeply thankful to the Branch for extending assistance to this usually overlooked sector of the society.

The yesteryears of our elderlies become a bold testament on how times may change. But, even with the perpetuity of time, the impact that the older generations have greatly reflected on what we are today. Thus, it is now our time to give back to them and make them realize how important their existence in this mortal world.
