SYKES gives out care packages to Grace To Be Born

“At the end of the day, it isn’t where I came from. Maybe home is somewhere I’m going and never have been before.” ― Warsan Shire

The place where you grow up isn’t always your home. A place where you feel safe and loved is where your home is. This is the case for the young pregnant and unwed women in dysfunctional relationships who have found their home in Grace to be Born Maternity Home and Nursery. Established in 2009 by Bo Sanchez, Rey Ortega and Betty Roxas-Chua, this temporary shelter serves home to women and babies who were ill-treated in their previous residences. Instead of getting an abortion or abandoning the children, the Grace to be Born Home gives an alternative for women to get care and put their infants in nurturing homes.

Proving that helping people is part of the company’s DNA, SYKES volunteer employees paid the home a visit for a gift-giving activity under the company’s corporate social responsibility arm, SYKES Cares. On October 23, 2017, SYKES representatives Saturnino Ausan and Joel Javier personally handed out the care packages to the home’s personnel-in-charge. These contained food and other essentials for the mothers and children in the shelter.
