In 2013, The Ruth Foundation’s Happy Room Project benefited some sixteen indigent patients from Cavite and Muntinlupa. TRF staff, nurses and volunteers worked together to transform the patients’ bedrooms or personal living spaces which were often dark, decrepit, and unsanitary. The work involved thorough cleaning, minor repairs, the installation of new and cheerful curtains and often times even bathing and grooming of the patients. The project embodies the truth that even in these small ways, a patient’s quality of life can be improved, and their dignity can be restored. Follow-up visits have been scheduled and a new batch of beneficiaries of the Happy Room Project are being identified for 2015.
