ON June 8, 2022, The Don Antonio O. Floirendo, Sr. Foundation (AOFF) conducted a donation drive at the St. Therese Crisis Center and St. Joseph Bahay Pag-asa Home in Datu Abdul Dadia, Panabo City.

Both these shelters are being operated by the City Social Welfare and Development Office.

The AOF Foundation donated different kinds of resources to the shelters and was headed by AOFF Executive Director Norman Clemente, as initiated by Tadeco QAGroup Manager Victoria Floirendo Brias.

St. Therese Crisis Center provides temporary shelter, protective custody, and rehabilitation to underage women who are victims of abuse. It has a total of 20 residents ranging from 2 to 17 years old. St. Joseph Bahay Pag-Asa Home, on the other hand, is a detention home center that caters to male juveniles in conflict with the law. The center serves as a custodian of the young men who are waiting for court judgment while being taught how to become law-abiding citizens under therapeutic care. The AOF Foundation also pledged to accommodate the residents of both shelters into a TLTC training where they will have a chance to do TLTC livelihood programs and earn their own income.

These shelters are part of the AOF Foundations’ chosen beneficiaries.

The Don Antonio O. Floirendo, Sr. Foundation (AOFF) is the Corporate Social Responsibility arm of the ANFLO Group of Companies. PR
