“Protecting and Fulfilling the Rights of the Child in the Light of Faith”



Promoting the welfare and protection of our children is the key to ensuring our country's prosperity.  Sr. Mary Adeline Abamo, SDS was glad to participate in this 5th Manila Conference.

 This year's  theme was: Responding to Interpersonal Violence, Sexual Assault and Exploitation. It was hosted by the Child Protection Network Foundation on December 2-3, 2013 at SMX Convention Center, Manila.

The important convention was attended by 2,000 professionals from government and non-government organizations who are working together to increase awareness on women and child abuse. There is likewise an urgent need to create a safe home and caring environment for women and children. This is a reason why the Child Protection Network and the Philippine General Hospital Women Protection Unit chose responding to domestic violence as its focal issue for the conference.
