De La Salle University’s Manufacturing Engineering and Management (MEM) students have donated beds to Hospicio de San Jose– an old orphanage in Quiapo, Manila that gives home to abandoned children, elderly people, and persons with disabilities. The beds that were donated are very useful for the orphanage’s limited space because the beds were developed to maximize space and were designed for it to be capable of being transformed into benches. These beds were made during a welding class of the 112 MEM students. They were supervised by Mr. Siegfried Lopez, a faculty member from the MEM Department.
The success of the project shows how Lasallians apply the things that they have learned in order to be an achiever for God and our country. Indeed, these students shows how the virtues of faith, excellence, and zeal for service should be internalized as part of giving back to all the blessings that we receive, and as driven by our love for God, and concern to others.
