Apalit, Pampanga – The Infant Care Center of the Members Church of God International (MCGI), a sanctuary for abandoned, neglected and abused infants, celebrated their second year through thanksgiving on August 16 this year.
Along with the infants, the institution’s dedicated professional caregivers, social workers and staff members went up the stage of the ADD Convention Center to offer their song of praise and thanksgiving.
Infant Care social worker Sister Anabelle Bercasio said the Center is well-maintained and managed through the continuous support of Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon.
“Under the leadership and guidance of our leaders, the needs of the infants under the care of the Infant Care Center are continuously being met be it material or emotional in nature,” remarked Sister Anabelle.
Presiding Minister Bro. Eli and Vice-Presiding Minister Bro. Daniel led the foundation of the Infant Care Center on the biblical belief that no good work will ever result to evil.
“First of all we thank God for having two years of opportunity given to the Infant Care [Center] to become instruments in nurturing children who are in need,” said Infant Care head Sister Anna Rose Angeles.
“We would like to thank God for Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, who are men with big hearts in supporting the needs of these children,” said Sister Anna Rose. “May they become living examples to all and may the work they have started inspire others to do the same.”
As of this writing, the Infant Care Center is taking care of eight children. Five children have been successfully brought back to their own families, while three are now under the process of being adopted.
The Infant Care Center is located in the ADD Convention Center in Apalit, Pampanga whose two years of operation has already housed a total of 13 infants.
To ensure infants are well-taken care of, social workers and round-the-clock caregivers tend to the needs of infants aging from one month to two years of age.
