Nearly 3,000 Pantawid Pamilya Partner-Beneficiaries attend the National Family Day organized by Department of Social Welfare and Development MiMaRopa on Sunday, October 4, in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

Pantawid Pamilya National Family Day, a simultaneous event of all DSWD offices nationwide, provides a venue for the beneficiaries to rejoice family togetherness and the positive changes in their lives.

“Tuloy ang Pagbabago!”, this is the theme of the event advocating unceasing effort to improve the overall well-being of the beneficiaries.

During the event, exemplary families for Huwarang Pantawid Pamilya 2015 are also awarded.  They are the beneficiaries chosen nationwide who showcase remarkable values and progress in their lives.

DSWD MiMaRoPa also promotes the institutionalization of the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program. Pantawid Pamilya Partner-Beneficiaries collectively join the ceremonial call to action to pass the CCT Bill.

In order to heighten the festive atmosphere of the day, DSWD with other regional and national agencies such as Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE); Department of Education (DepEd); Department of Health (DOH); Technical Education and Skills Development (TESDA); Western Command (WESCOM); Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth); and Philippine Red Cross also decided to hold mini-job fair, food booths, products fair, haircut booth, medical and dental mission and fun games.

DSWD IV-MiMaRoPa Regional Director Wilma Naviamos, opens the Family Day by delivering an inspiring speech for all the beneficiaries. “You already have started an outstanding transformation in your life. Don’t halt! Continue your journey in achieving your dream,” encouraged RD Naviamos. ###
