True to its commitment to bring social protection services closer to the Filipino people, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) joined the simultaneous launch of the Duterte Legacy: Barangayanihan Caravan Towards National Recovery.
The caravan was launched in all the 17 regions across the country on Sept. 30. It was led by the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), in partnership with the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), and the Philippine National Police (PNP).
“The activity aims to inform the public about the government’s programs, policies, accomplishments, and efforts to bring about real change to the lives of the Filipino people by showcasing real stories from the beneficiaries in their respective localities of the administration’s landmark policies and programs — a legacy and embodiment of our President’s Whole-of Nation Approach,” the DSWD said in a statement.
“Furthermore, the caravan intends to bring the basic services of the government to the grassroots level and offers on-ground activities for the participants in all of the 17 regions.”
As part of the caravan, the DSWD initiated information dissemination activities and provided basic services, financial assistance, medical assistance, and provision of family food packs.
The Social Security System (SSS), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Technological Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), Department of Agriculture (DA), and Department of Health (DOH) were among the other agencies that participated in the other Serbisyo Caravan.
“The launching of the caravan is just the beginning, as the Duterte Legacy Caravan will be knocking on the doors of the different cities, municipalities and even barangays nationwide in the coming days to make sure that the Duterte Legacy is experienced by every Filipino,” the DSWD said.
