    DSWD to hire 1,245 staff to validate recipients of social aid

    by UNTV News   |   Posted on Monday, March 24th, 2014

    From the Department of Social Welfare and Development

    The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) will hire and train 1,245 staff members to validate beneficiaries of Social Pension for Indigent Senior Citizens and Modified Conditional Cash Transfer (MCCT) Program.

    The staff members will be hired through Listahanan, the national household targeting system for poverty reduction. They will be assigned as area coordinators, area supervisors, enumerators, and encoders.

    Of the total number of staff to be hired, 878 will be assigned to validate the status of the 132,000 beneficiaries of the Social Pension who are not in the Listahanan database, while 371 will assess potential beneficiaries for the MCCT Program. DSWD targets to include around 63,000 families in the MCCT.

    Social Pension is being implemented in accordance with the Expanded Senior Citizen’s Act of 2010. It grants qualified beneficiaries P500 monthly stipend each to augment their daily subsistence and medical needs.

    The MCCT, on the other hand, provides cash grants to street and displaced families, nomadic indigenous peoples (IPs) or those living in geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas provided that they comply with its conditions on health and education.

    “For the Social Pension, the purpose of the special validation is to verify the poverty status of its current recipients and ensure that only the poor senior citizens will continue receiving benefits,” explained DSWD Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman.

    DSWD field offices will facilitate the recruitment and screening of applicants beginning April 2014.

    Applicants can submit their application to the nearest DSWD office or to the Social Welfare and Development Team office.

    The special validations will start by the 2nd quarter of 2014.

    MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) plans to allocate a huge chunk of its P137-billion proposed budget to its flagship program, Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4P’s).

    The 4P’s would get an P89-billion allocation, while the DSWD also plans to allot P19-billion for the monthly pension of poor senior citizens.

    This means that the number of senior citizens who will receive a P500-monthly pension might rise to 2.8-million.

    “Now that senior citizens are being standardized, we are now compliant with the standard definition of a senior citizen which is at 60 years old. And we anticipate this year or next year there will be a 7% increase,” said DSWD Officer-in-Charge USec. Emmanuel Leyco.

    In the proposed budget, the DSWD allots P1.2-billion for the subsidy from the tax reform package for the cash transfer program.

    According to DSWD officer in charge Undersecretary Emmanuel Leyco, the said subsidy would be a huge help for  poor families who may be affected by tax reforms the government plans to implement.

    “This is what we are looking at, when the prices of goods increase, the number of poor would also increase. This is why we are happy with the tax reform resolution to increase the subsidy and implement it slowly,” Leyco said.

    About 4.4 million families stand to benefit from the 4-P’s  program of the government. – Nel Maribojoc | UNTV News & Rescue

    Over 2,000 families suffer impact of “Maring” in NCR and Calabarzon

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

    MANILA, Philippines — Floodwater has not receded yet in more than 130 areas in Metro Manila and Central Luzon.

    Heavy rains caused by tropical depression Maring have affected more than 2,000 families in the National Capital Region (NCR) and Calabarzon region.

    Based on the estimates of the National Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Council (NDRRMC), about 1800 families affected by floods are still staying in 116 evacuation centers.

    The typhoon has damaged nine houses, while several roads remain unpassable.

    “Some areas remain unpassable to due to minor slides and increase in water level due to the typhoon. Many are located in Calabarzon. These are in the 3rd district of Quezon, 4th district of Quezon, 2nd district of Cavite, 3rd district of Laguna and in the 1st district of the province Rizal,” said NDRRMC Spokesperson Romina Marasigan.

    At least five were reportedly killed due to typhoon Maring.

    The NDRRMC said it did not fail in issuing sufficient warnings and reminders to the public about the effects of the typhoon.

    “We issued warning to the public. We sent them messages about the proper preparations. The key here is for them to cooperate,” said Marasigan.

    Meanwhile, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has prepared stockpiles and standby funds for those affected by the typhoon. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue

    MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has renewed the registration and license of the Kamanggagawa Foundation Incorporated (KFI).

    DSWD has recognized KFI as one of its licensed foundations, and partners in providing aid and care to our compatriots in need, especially the poor.

    The DSWD awarded KFI a certificate of registration and license for its continued support to the government’s good advocacies.

    With this, the KFI can finally receive funds from DSWD and donations from international organizations or groups that it can use in bringing more aid to those in need.

    “What’s important is that we are able to establish the legitimacy of organizations. We saw their capabilities and willingness to cooperate with the DSWD. As a partner of the DSWD, we can finally share our resources with them so they could help more Filipinos,” DSWD OIC Director USec. Emmanuel Leyco said.

    The DSWD noted itis not easy for a charitable foundation to secure a license especially since it needs to undergo thorough screening of its qualifications and requirements.

    The KFI, meanwhile, has expressed deep gratitude to the recognition and privilege it received from the DSWD.

    “We are very happy and thankful to God because it proves that our goal is not only to help others but also to comply with the requests of the agencies of the government.”

    “We are thankful to DSWD because it recognized our efforts to continue in helping those in need, not just those without shelters, but also those who are with disability, those who have been hit by calamities and others who are in need of help,” KFI Board of Trustee Bro. Danny Navales said.

    The Kamangagawa Foundation Incorporated is a non- profit organization that aims to help and improve the lives of the poor, senior citizens, people suffering from illnesses, persons with disability, and orphaned Filipinos, through the leadership of Bro. Eli Soriano and Mr. Public Service Kuya Daniel Razon.

    For now, the KFI is exerting more efforts in assisting and supporting various charitable activities of UNTV, like medical missions, feeding programs, and free college education, among others. – Joan Nano | UNTV News & Rescue
