Group plans to build bigger rehab centers for abused children

A Church-based group protecting abused children and women is planning to build larger rehabilitation centers for abused boys and girls.

The People's Recovery, Empowerment Development Assistance Foundation said this is due to the large number of minors rescued by PREDA teams.

"Due to the large volume of minors that the PREDA team rescue they are currently planning the construction of a home for boys and one for girls. The team urgently needs construction engineers as well as roofers, plumbers and electricians to help them finish these projects," said PREDA director Fr. Shay Cullen, in an article posted on the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines website.

He PREDA team members in Olongapo are continuing their tireless work in rescuing children from adult prisons and child prostitution.

Cullen said PREDA offers these rescued minors medical, educational, spiritual and a strong network of social supports to meet their needs.

The Irish priest encouraged young and retired professionals to help in the "life changing project" by passing on skills to a group of children whose lives will be altered positively.

PREDA needs help to have a positive impact on the lives of children who are struggling for their basic human rights, he said. - GMANews.TV
