Message from the Executive Director

There are now 106 Women and Children Protection Units (WCPUs) in 55 provinces and 10 cities of the Philippines. 77,886 abused and high-risk children and their families have received care and services from the WCPUs nationwide. Every day Child Protection physicians and social workers see to it that abused children who seek their care are safe, healthy and developing to the best of their potential. Finding pockets of hardworking, dedicated local government partners, combining strengths with like-minded NGO’s, WCPU’s are examples of the Philippines at its best. We are inspired by the vision and generosity of David Bradley who started and continue to work with us. With the leadership of a new board of trustees, we are poised to fulfill the vision of having a Women and Child Protection Unit in every province.
