Renewing Hope for Silungan ng Pag-asa
Helping the Renovation of the Shelter for Children with Cancer
It is one of Dexterton’s aims to help improve the homes of Filipinos – especially for those who need it most. That is why it was a great honor for us to be a part of Mapúa University’s annual conduction of exhibit class through renovations of shelters and institutional spaces.
This year, the graduating class of Interior Design has chosen Shelter of Hope or Silungan ng Pag-asa. Founded by Pastor Junie Antinero, this halfway house serves as a shelter for pediatric patients who come from the provinces and are undergoing treatments in Manila. To make this project a reality, the students sought out Dexterton as one of the sponsors to provide the necessary items for the bathroom renovation.
Sharing the class’ compassion and commitment to help, we immediately agreed and inquired about the project’s requirements. At Dexterton, we believe that bathrooms are not just functional spaces; they are also places of personal comfort, relaxation, and transformation. With this at heart and mind, we a supplied pedestal sink, toilet, cold tap, shower set, as well as floor and wall tiles for the shelter.
Aptly named, “Camp Haven: A Home Away From Home”, the exhibit project presented the renovated place with rooms that represent a campsite’s different functional areas.
This resulted to a fun, creative, relaxing, and comfortable shelter that the children need and will hopefully love.
By participating in this project, Dexterton hopes to give comfort and convenience to the Silungan ng Pag-asa residents. If you want to help, please contact Pastor Junie through Shelter of Hope / Silungan ng Pag-asa Facebook page.
