Psychiatric Centre Saint Dymphna, Gingoog
This small-scaled initiative, locally originated on behalf of volunteers, was taken over by the Brothers of Charity in 2013 and thoroughly adapted to fit the requirements of care services. The centre was reopened at the end of 2014. ‘Breaking the chains of stigma’ and removing the iron bars were top priorities for Fracarita International.
