A 60-bed, 2-storey building for Children In Conflict with the Law (CICL) will soon rise at Mother Theresa Foundation in Upper Puerto, Cagayan de Oro City.

The P15 million facility dubbed “Bahay Pag-asa” is intended for children aged 15 years old and below who have committed crimes and will serve as their temporary home and rehabilitation center. Accordingly, P10 million will be funded thru the Juvenile Justice Welfare Council and the remaining P5 million by the city government.

The development is part of the envisioned 5-hectare Oro Care Center Village which also includes a Home for the Elderly and Mental Hospital, among others.
