Mandaue City, CEBU- One month after the Holy Week, Nature’s Spring Foundation, Inc. in coordination with PSWRI reaches out to 54 Children in HOME Children’s Center in Mandaue City.

Hygiene kits and shirts were distributed to the children of the center. Each hygiene kit contained personal hygiene items that include shampoo, bath soap, toothpaste, toothbrush and hand towel. Food packs were also donated to augment the food supplies of the center. Food items include a sack of rice, boxes of canned goods and noodles.
According to the head and social worker of the center, Ms, Maricel Yu, “The center was a rehabilitation house for minor offenders and child abuse victims aged 18 years old and below.”
