Pres. Aquino congratulates DSWD on its 63rd anniversary, encourages staff to continue doing good job

Pres. Aquino and Sec. Soliman read the wishes of the children survivors of Typhoon Yolanda during the celebration of DSWD’s 63rdAnniversary at the DSWD Central Office in Quezon City

Pres. Aquino and Sec. Soliman read the wishes of the children survivors of Typhoon Yolanda during the celebration of DSWD’s 63rdAnniversary at the DSWD Central Office in Quezon City

“Sana po huwag kayong magsawa na makipagtulungan sa akin upang maibalik ang pagtitiwalang ipinagkaloob ng mamamayang Pilipino. Sa husay ng trabaho ninyo dito, nararamdaman kong magiging mas malawak, mas mabilis, mas pangmatagalan pa ang magagawa nating pagkalinga at pagpapaunlad sa kalagayan ng ating mga kababayan – ang ating mga boss – kahit na gaano pa ito kahirap.”

(I hope you do not get tired of working with me, so the Filipino people can trust us again. Because you do your jobs well here, I feel that our services will have broader coverage, faster delivery and more long-term effect. All this for our countrymen – our bosses – no matter how difficult the task may be.)

This was the gist of the message of President Benigno S. Aquino III who was the guest of honor during the celebration of the Department’s 63rdAnniversary held on Thursday, January 16, at the DSWD Central Office in Batasan Hills, Quezon City

Speaking in the vernacular, the President commended Secretary Corazon Juliano-Soliman and the employees of DSWD saying that “not everyone can do the work that [they] do.”

“During times of disasters, many of you cannot even find the time to sit down because of the myriad things that have to be done,” he said.

He continued to mention not only how DSWD is critical on what services are rendered, but also when they are given out.

“You know that you cannot forgive yourselves even for just a few seconds of delay in the delivery of relief goods and medicine because so many are hungry, thirsty, sick, scared and lonely,” the President highlighted.

Mentioning DSWD’s role in development, Pres. Aquino stated that the Department’s mandate focuses not only on the welfare of the disadvantaged and vulnerable citizens but also on developing and empowering the capabilities of these sectors.

The President cited that with the help of DSWD staff and through the programs being implemented by the Department, the government is “able to achieve the mandate given by the people.”

Enumerating the pro-poor programs being implemented by DSWD, Pres. Aquino said that almost four million poor households were provided with the opportunity for a brighter future under the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, which widened its coverage in 2013, while some 334,158 households benefitted from the Sustainable Livelihood Program.

“Sustainable means long-term, not just for photo ops,” the President emphasized.

Some P1.53 billion was given to indigent senior citizens, while P2.85 million was spent for the Supplemental Feeding Program benefitting 1.45 million children.

He also mentioned other pro-poor programs such as the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS) which implemented 3,541 projects chosen by the communities themselves, benefitting 841,000 households.

“Since it’s the beneficiaries themselves which identified the projects they need, we know that they will ensure the success of each project,” the President expounded.    

“In the end, a person or an institution is not seen in their number of years here on earth, but on how many people they were able to help; how many lives they changed; how deep their positive contribution to society; and how many were given hope,” he added.

Pres. Aquino ended by encouraging the DSWD employees to continue doing a great job.

“I invite all of you here at DSWD, let us continue to give our all, our best in helping those in need. We have travelled far, and I know that with your continued contribution, we will achieve even more.” ###
