The local Alfonso DSWD (Department of Social Welfare Development) introduced us its accredited orphanage in Tagaytay and AWH with its guests from Japan visited their facility in November 2014.

Mother Teresa SpinelliThe orphanage is funded privately including oversea donors and well maintained. They accept abandoned children and on that particular day we visited, Alfonso DSWD brought an 1 year old orphan girl to the facility and asked for her acceptance.

Mother Teresa SpinelliThe girl was found on a street in Alfonso right after her birth in malnourished condition and had been looked after by five foster parents. However, since all of the foster parents are indigent and could barely feed her as they have 7 or 8 of their own children already. After the evaluation, the facility accepted her and the last foster mother let her go in tears.
