Welcoming Women and Children Refugees

Gota de Leche staff member prepares relief goods for Yolanda victims

Gota de Leche Manila has opened its unused space as temporary lodgings for women and children refugees still waiting for their relatives at Villamor Air Base. This is for the next 60 days. Our building is a Unesco heritage site but we are not treating it as sacrosanct. (paraphrased from Ms Ninotchka Rosca’s Facebook post)
