Zonta Club of Makati and Environs celebrates 55th anniversary of Psychological Center for Abused Girls and Children

On 16 March, the Zonta Club of Makati and Environs, the Philippines, celebrated the 55th anniversary of its flagship project, the Marillac Hills Psychological Center for Abused Girls and Children.

Twenty-six years ago, the club partnered with Marillac Hills – National Training School for Girls, a government-run haven for survivors of sexual abuse, exploitation and cyber pornography and girls who conflict with the law. This partnership has allowed both organizations to expand their resources in helping survivors. Currently, Club Vice President Joanne Zapanta-Andrada serves as the center’s committee head of the Psychological Center.

During the celebration, the club handed out plaques of appreciation for their partners and Zontians who have made the center’s work invaluable. The program also included speeches from officials, performances and a brief history of the center was provided by Farrah Cabrera, the head of the center.
