Grace To Be Born


Maria, a 13-year old incest victim, gazed wide-eyed as she and her housemates listened to a talk about the new life in her womb. Maria, together with other young pregnant and unwed women caught in dysfunctional relationships and contemplating abortion, have found shelter in Grace to Be Born.

Grace to Be Born Maternity Home and Nursery, a halfway house, was established in 2009 through the generous partnership of Basti and Betty Roxas-Chua who lent their building rent-free. The place serves as a temporary shelter for unwed mothers (seeking shelter and second chance at life) and an orphanage (a haven for the children born there).
