DSWD 11 assures availability of standby fund for calamities

DAVAO CITY (PIA) An officer of the Department of Social Welfare and Development assured that Davao Region has enough contingency fund for any calamity.

Priscilla Razon, director of the DSWD 11 and vice chair for disaster response of the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council 11 said that currently an amount at P1.4Billion is on standby to be used once a destructive storm or an earthquake hits Region 11.

She said the DSWD 11 has been pre-positioning all the relief goods for any eventuality.

Razon said that a series of trainings have been conducted for all Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Porgram implementors on disaster response.

“The training has been going on since two weeks ago.  Another one week training is slated at Eden in Toril where 628 implementors in the whole region will undergo training on disaster response, one week per province,” she said.

Razon also shared that Davao Region has been assigned to augment the government response on the East quadrant of Metro Manila once the Marikina fault shakes, side by side with Region II.

She said different regions were already given their assignments on the East, West and North of Metro Manila. (PIA 11-Joey Sem G. Dalumpines)

San Isidro women hog raisers: DavOr’s game-changers

San Isidro, Davao Oriental -The remote village of Cambaleon in San Isidro town in Davao Oriental is the recent beneficiary of a community-managed livelihood project through the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

Rich in marine resources and agricultural products, San Isidro was selected for the national pilot run of the then CIDSS (Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services) in 1993.

Most of its barangays have also been included in the Core Shelter Assistance Program (CSAP) in early to mid-1990s.

Apart from SLP, the municipality presently enjoys other DSWD programs such as Kalahi-CIDSS, Pantawid Pamilya, Supplementary Feeding, and Social Pension.

Organized in November 2014, the Cambaleon Hog Raisers SEA-K Association is composed of 20 women who obtained a capital assistance of Php 200,000.00 following several social preparation activities.

Joining the women recipients at the turnover program were local officials and DSWD officers led by SLP provincial coordinator Julius Duterte.

Municipal Social Welfare and Development Officer Elna G. Arenal expressed optimism on this latest DSWD engagement.

“At this early, I foresee the success of this all-women venture. I am very positive that they can do it given their sheer enthusiasm and the technical inputs being provided by DSWD project development officers.”

I am just so excited because in the past, San Isidro has extensively worked with DSWD on the core shelter units constructed in several barangays here. Now, we still have Kalahi-CIDSS, Pantawid Pamilya, Social Pension, Suplementary Feeding, and others. In a way, our town is blessed with a lot of social protection programs from DSWD and we are grateful for this, Arenal shared.

ABC President Reynaldo Peñafiel and some members of the barangay council also conveyed their happiness and pledged to support the project.

Association President Renefe Quilisadio delivered her message of acceptance and promised to take good care of the fund entrusted them and committed as well to deliver the roll back payment in a quarterly basis.

“Initially, we will start working on 40 piglets with an average weight of 10 kilos each,” she said.

Based on SLP Policy Memo 04-2013 from the Office of Secretary Soliman, Cambaleon Hog Raisers SEA-K Association will serve as the SLP-Supplementary Feeding Program Commodity Cluster Model (CCM) in San Isidro, Duterete shared.

Hence, the group is responsible in supplying the pork meat requirement in the conduct of Supplementary Feeding Program in the town which provides nutritious hot meals to children in day care centers, Duterte added.

DSWD continues to empower poor families nationwide through SLP, a community-based capacity building program that seeks to improve  socio-economic status of family recipients, in partnership with local governments, national government and non-government agencies. (DSWD)
