Caridad Quilacio is a resident of the Bahay Kanlungan ni Maria Domenica. She is a member-beneficiary of a program for handicapped elderly women managed by the Camillian Sisters. Before her death last August 9, 2011 she left these touching words:
“We all have disabilities, whether they are visible or not.
We all have things we are forced to overcome in life;
I’ve learned that it’s not the disability that stops people from doing things in life; It’s people who stop themselves.
With the support from Assisi, this institution intends to keep going. Life is simply too short and too wonderful to do otherwise.”
