The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) continues to reiterate to the public to stay vigilant and report their situation to authorities as a new low pressure area (LPA) is expected to enhance the monsoon rains affecting  a huge portion of Luzon.

“Patuloy po ang aming paalala sa publiko na mag-ingat at agad makipag-ugnayan sa kanilang lokal na pamahalaan o sa DSWD-Field Offices upang agad namin maihatid ang tulong na kanilang kailangan (We remind the public to remain vigilant and to coordinate with their local government units (LGUs) or DSWD- Field Offices so that we can immediately deliver necessary assistance),” said DSWD Secretary Virginia N. Orogo.

In addition, the Department, as the lead agency in camp coordination and camp management, has assigned social workers to  conduct visitation and needs assessment in evacuation centers  to ensure the welfare and protection of evacuees

The DSWD FO-NCR also confirmed that 100% of the evacuation centers in Metro Manila have child and women-friendly spaces to ensure the safety of children.

NYC GEARS UP FOR INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY AND LINGGO NG KABATAAN 2018

The National Youth Commission (NYC) were in the cities of BiƱan, Iriga, Dagupan, Cebu, Iloilo, Zamboanga and Iligan to celebrate the International Youth Day (IYD) and Linggo ng Kabataan (LNK) 2018  last  August 12, 2018. 

With the theme “Safe Spaces for Youth,” this year’s IYD aims to increase awareness among the youth on what is safe space, to determine the youth’s perspective on safe space, and to advocate the role of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) in governance, as one of the champions in ensuring and providing safe spaces for the youth.

“This year’s IYD will be different from the previous celebrations. We conceptualized a program that is more fun so that the youth will appreciate the activity even more. It is quite challenging for us to implement IYD in seven areas but at the same time, we are looking forward and excited on what would be the outcome,” said NYC Assistant Secretary Paul Pangilinan, Chairperson of the IYD and LNK 2018 National Organizing Committee.

IYD and LNK 2018 participants in each area will be coming from the sub-sectors of out-of-school youth, in-school youth, and youth with specific needs. Sangguniang Kabataan officials and youth volunteers will also join the celebration.


“As one of the most vulnerable sectors in our society, we are hoping that the youth sector will not just have fun during the IYD and LNK 2018 celebration but will also gain knowledge on the concept of safe space and propose recommendations or policies to their LGUs in order to provide a safer and more secured environment for the youth,” added Pangilinan.

IYD is an event celebrated annually every 12th day of August based on the United Nations Resolution 54/120 adopted on December 17, 1999. (NYC) #  Source - PIA
