International SWS for Filipino Nationals


The DSWD, being the primary government agency responsible in providing protection and upholding the welfare of Filipinos wherever they maybe located, has conceptualized and implemented the International Social Welfare Services for Filipino Nationals (ISWSFN) Project in 2002. It is carried out through the deployment of social workers abroad who provide psychosocial interventions and other welfare and protection services to migrant Filipinos particularly the undocumented and the distressed.
