BOOK DRIVE - Phase 1, Book Collection

CESDEV Nursing of UC Banilad would like to express its gratefulness to the kind and generous senior student nurses and to everyone who shared their old books by donating these to UC Nursing CESDEV. We have just concluded a very successful Book Drive where a total of more than 5,000 books and other reading materials were gathered. These books will be formally turned over to Barangay Kalunasan where UC Nursing CESDEV will put up a Community Library. The Barangay Captain has already alloted a 60 square meter area for this project. It is hoped that before the year ends, the project will already be in place. Fine ladies and gentle men, please accept our warmest "Salamat" for your cooperation. Indeed, you will be leaving a legacy when you graduate ... that of putting up a Community Library in Barangay Kalunasan for those who cannot send themselves to school. God bless you more!


Nine volunteers of UC Nursing CESDEV joined the Rotary Club of Cebu (South)in a medical mission to Aloguinsan, a town in the south of Cebu last November 16, 2008. They were joined by the medical team from Cebu Institute of Medicine, student nurses from Velez College and Rotaractors from Sci-Tech Main Campus. A number of patients availed of the free circumcision, free consultation for adult and pediatric patients, free pap smear, as well as free dental extraction. There was also feeding program and deworming activities.


As our way of recognizing the efforts and dedication of the student nurses of UC Banilad to the programs and activities of the Community Extension Services and Development (CESDEV), a photo exhibit will be opened at the lobby of UC Banilad today. Please come and visit and appreciate the essence of service extended by the student nurses for they believe " not only to themselves are they born".


CESDEV Nursing volunteers spent considerable amount of time and effort in putting up the exhibit on the activities and programs of CESDEV Nursing. This is intended to showcase the various outreach activities of the student nurses and to acknowledge their contribution in achieving the ultimate goal of making the community self-reliant through relevant and sustained development programs and activities.


After a long day serving our Kapamilya at the Grand Halad sa Kapamilya in UP High School Grounds, the CESDEV Nursing volunteers decided to hike all the way from UP Cebu to Ayala Center Cebu to relax and unwind. They strolled around the newly-opened Terraces and settled at the green meadow adjacent to Marriot Hotel where the group relaxed and enjoyed some food and drinks, a belated birthday treat for Jude Mathew dela Cruz, the president for CESDEV Nursing Junior volunteers who recently celebrated his birthday.

CESDEV Nursing volunteers had the chance to go on-air, live, through ABS-CBN Cebu's AM station DYAB 1512. Don Jade Canama, Patrick Liporada, Bart Fajardo, Chinky Lim, and Neilmar Ardaba were interviewed by "Inday Tikay" (Tisha Ylaya) regarding the services they rendered during the Grand Halad sa Kapamilya. Below is the YouTube clip of the said interview.

A seminar on Fluid and Electrolyte balance and on Dehydration was provided to more than 300 student nurses. A lively exchange of ideas as well and questions being answered followed after the seminar.

Realizing the need to address the problem of Malnutrition in Barangay Kalunasan in ways that are more sustainable, feasible, and achievable, the Community Extension Service and Development of the College of Nursing of UC Banilad will be embarking on a massive Malunggay planting activity this December. It is hoped that this initiative will significantly address not only the problem on Malnutirion but this is also seen to generate income opportunities to the community residents in the future.
