$110. That's how much it costs to sponsor all the counseling sessions needed to begin healing in a child's life.
On average, we find it takes 8-10 weekly 1:1 sessions for a child to reach a better place.
Each year we provide psychotherapy and counseling sessions to help over 100 poor children across the Philippines recover from trauma due to sexual and physical abuse.
Our staff and volunteers at the Sunflower Center offer children physical, psychological, spiritual, and emotional support and healing from trauma in a warm, loving, and playful environment. They also work to ensure every child has a safe home by helping children reintegrate with their families or finding new adoptive families when needed.
During this Easter season will you consider sponsoring one or all of the weekly counseling sessions offered by the Sunflower Center?

Advocacy For the Children of the Philippines
Through our Sunflower CYWC Advocacy Program, we campaign and collaborate with local government and community organizations for child protection and provide knowledge and skills-based training to help prevent abuse.
Staggering levels of poverty and regional instability are two of the factors that lead to an estimated 8 in 10 Filippino children experiencing some form of abuse. The Sunflower Center's Child Youth and Wellness Center offers survivors of sexual and physical abuse and neglect a safe, loving, and playful environment in which they receive professional counseling services to help them heal from the trauma they have experienced. Children typically need between 8-10 therapy sessions to help them begin to thrive and reintegrate into their families.
The Sunflower Center works with governmental, community, and non-profit organizations to advocate for all survivors of abuse, to raise awareness about their heartbreaking reality, and to implement policies that will help end cycles of abuse and neglect. Our partnerships help educate everyone from politicians to small family units in an effort to secure a better future for children in the Philippines.
