Cordillera - A vagrant lola who used to roam the streets of Baguio city for 34 years has been rescued and rehabilitated now lives a normal life.

Thanks to the effort of the government and private sectors that Lola Calteya, 34-years-old now reintegrated with her family after a long time of living in the streets of Baguio.

“Ngayon si Nanay Calteya ay nag-aalaga ng apo, nagluluto, naglalaba at nakikisimba.  Tumatawa, nagbibiro at higit sa lahat nanumbalik ang ilan niyang ala-ala.  Na-enroll na rin si nanay bilang senior citizen at may social pension pa siya,” Ricky Ducas of the Baguio City Health Services Office Mental Health Program unit said.

After nine months of caring and support from both the private and government sectors, the seemingly impossible to be rehabilitated vagrant has been successfully reintegrated in the community.

Now, Lola Calteya is happily living with her family and taking care of her grandchildren, cooking her food, washing and even going to church. 

“Anak na din ang tawag niya sa akin at sobrang saya ng pakiramdam na nagawa natin ang akala natin ay imposible. Sa tulong ng Dios at kayo na may puso na gawin akong tulay sa mga tulad nila. Iyaman! Sumya tako!,” Ducas said issuing a challenge:

“Sana magawa natin ito sa lahat ng mga nasa lansangan na may psychosocial disability subalit una sa lahat dapat merong pamilya na handang yumakap muli sa mga tulad nila. Dahil may awa ang May Likha at maraming tao ang handang tumulong sa inyong kapamilya,” Ducas said.
