Sadly, not all of us had such dilemma but had way rougher at a young age.
We have homeless children who had been emotionally and physically shattered by the harsh living conditions of the streets; whose families suffer or break apart right before their very eyes, whose tummies ache because it had nothing to digest thus, their intestines are the ones facing the painful acidic reactions from their bile. We are never to blame or judge these kids if they had to turn to chemical addiction, crime, prostitution or worse, suicide, because we were never there in their darkest moments.
Think life is hard? Think again.
Good thing there are those people who make it their life's calling to come and rescue these children and give them a life they deserve.
Cebu has a lot of NGOs but allow me to introduce you to The Citi Center, a shelter for homeless children managed by the Cebu City Mendicancy Office in cooperation with Dolores Aboitiz Children's Fund.
