The City Government of Cagayan de Oro yesterday, October 30, held the official ground breaking ceremony for the P20 million Oro Golden Home for the Elderly at the Mother Theresa Oro Care Center Compound in Upper Puerto.

The new facility will provide a temporary shelter for abandoned and neglected elderly in society while undergoing rehabilitation and for possible family reintegration.
