Kahupayan Center opens
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW
The Dumaguete Kahupayan Pastoral Care and Counseling for women and girls facing difficulties, problems and abuses, will be a venue for them to unload their burdens.
Florence Tangente, who heads the center, explains that the facility offers a variety of services for these women, especially victims of domestic abuse and human trafficking, and other forms of maltreatment.
In an interview Wednesday, she said the center basically will be a venue for “listening”, in that many women who go to confession need more time than just receiving the sacrament to talk about their problems.
