The Zamboanga local government has allocated the amount of P2.2-million for the repair of the Social Development Center .(SDC.)

Around 40 wards of the center are scheduled to transfer temporarily to the Women’s Crisis Center to pave the way for the renovation.

Ma. Socorro Rojas, City Social Welfare and Development Officer, said that the repair will start this week and end after four months.

Repairs include putting in and repair of existing electrical connection and addition of furniture.

The SDC houses around 40 children.  The number however reaches 70 when police conduct rescue operation of street children.

The SDC has an annual budget of P700,000 mostly used for the food and toiletries of children in the centre.  (RGAAGo)
