Day care center dedicated to UNICEF Education Chief killed in Pakistan bombing

The Perseveranda So Memorial Day Care Centre opened its doors in the island province of Guimaras on 22 May 2010. Dedicated to the former UNICEF Education Chief who was killed in the June 2009 bombing of the Pearl Continental Hotel in Peshawar, Pakistan, the center will serve a number of children in the remote village of Barangay San Roque.

UNICEF country representative Vanessa Tobin who attended the center’s opening said other memorials are planned as a tribute to So as she praised her commitment to children’s welfare and education.

Family members who also attended the opening said the center is the best way to honor So who dedicated her life to making sure that children around the world have access to quality education.
