The Bahay Alalay aims to give decent shelter for watchers and recurring outpatient children needing periodic pediatric services.

To be constructed within PCMC’s compound, the facility will have a complete reception, cafeteria, playroom, and sleeping quarters area separate for male and female occupants.

Isuzu being the `Responsible Partner’ cares about the overall well-being and welfare of these children especially those coming from the provinces not having enough money to find a place here in the city,” said IPC President Tetsuya Fujita.
