600 Senior Citizens join the 2016 Elderly Filipino Week Celebration in Palawan

ABORLAN, PALAWAN – 600 Senior Citizens attended the 2016 Elderly Filipino Week Celebration in Aborlan, Palawan Tuesday, 18 October 2016.

Department of Social Welfare and Development MiMaRoPa, in coordination with the Local Government Unit of Aborlan, Palawan, spearheaded the said celebration.

Activity aims to recognize the important contributions of senior citizens in community development and nation building.

This year’s theme, “Pagmamahal at Respeto ng Nakababata, Nagpapaligaya sa Nakatatanda”, emphasizes that older persons should be loved, cared for, and respected.

Naniniwala po ako na ang mga Senior Citizens ay malaki ang kontribusyon sa pagpapaunlad ng ating ekonomiya at komunidad. Sila po ang humuhubog sa ating mga kabataan na maging may takot sa Diyos at maging mabait na mamamayan (Senior Citizens have great contribution in improving the state of our economy and community. They hone and guide our youth to be God-fearing and to be good citizens),” said Purificacion Arriola, Protective Services Unit Head.

One of the highlights of the event was the discussion of the Republic Act (RA) 10868 or the Centenarians Act of 2016.

The law states that all Filipinos, who have reached  100 years old and above, whether residing in the Philippines or abroad shall be honored with a Letter of Felicitation from the President of the Philippines congratulating the celebrant for his or her longevity; and a Centenarian gift in the amount of one hundred thousand pesos (P100,000).

Moreover, DSWD continued to advocate for the strict implementation of Republic Act (RA) 9994, or the Expanded Senior Citizens Act of 2010, which provides more benefits and privileges to older persons.

They are entitled to 20% discount on the purchase of certain goods and services, special 5% discount on prime commodities and basic necessities, and 5% utility discount on electric and water consumption.

To heighten knowledge and awareness of Senior Citizens about their health, rights and privileges, various talks were given.

Ms. Emily N. Beridico, Executive Director of Coalition of Services of the Elderly, Inc., shared about ‘Ageing, Emerging Needs and Issues on OP Sector and How to Prevent Elderly Abuse’ while Ms. Adelwisa Maria C. Joquin, President of Bantay Matanda Inc. presented the ‘How to Care for Alzheimer’s Patient’.

Members of Regional Interagency Committee for Senior Citizens — Department of Health (DOH), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and Department of Science and Technology (DOST) — also supported the Elderly Filipino Week Celebration.

Free medical check-up, massage therapy, and livelihood assistance were some of the services provided to elderly.

On the other hand, Local Government Unit provided community-based alternative living arrangements and senior citizens centers that serves as a venue for our older persons recreational, educational, health and social activities.

Also, senior citizens participated in the following contest: a) food preparation; b) best display of products; c) biggest no. of participants; d) oldest male and female; and e) banner making contest. ###

Listahanan marks international poverty, hunger eradication celebration thru symposium

SAN JOSE, Occidental Mindoro – In observance of the October 17th ‘International Day for Eradication of Extreme Hunger and Poverty’, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA held the 2016 Listahanan Anti-symposium yesterday.

This year’s theme is Moving from humiliation and exclusion to participation: Ending poverty in all its forms.’

According to United Nations, “humiliation is pervasive among the homeless and people living in poverty; it is a negative experience that is interpersonal in nature. While shame is the result of a personal judgment of failure, humiliation tends to involve the belief by the individual that he or she does not deserve the treatment he or she is getting.”

The symposium is an initiative of DSWD to acknowledge the effort and struggle of people living in poverty and a chance for them to be heard and recognized,” said Ernie Jarabejo, NHTS Regional Project Coordinator.

One of the noteworthy topics in the symposium is the ‘Ambisyon Natin 2040’ of National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA). It is a long-term (25 years) vision for the country as a basis for unity among Filipinos which is also anchored with development planning across four administrations.

On the other hand, the Provincial Government of Occidental Mindoro has presented the pro-poor programs and services and the Social Protection Framework of DSWD which address the poverty situation in achieving the government sustainable development goals.

Listahanan also bares the results of the 2015 Household Assessment highlighting the profile of the poor in Occidental and Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan (MIMAROPA) provinces which identifies 207,863 (36.5%) poor households regionwide.

In Occidental Mindoro, 37,983 households are identified as poor. The results also revealed that Magsaysay,Abra de Ilog and San Jose are the top three towns with the highest magnitude of poor provincewide.

Meanwhile, beneficiaries of DSWD’s programs such as KALAHI-CIDSS, Sustainable Livelihood and Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Programs shared testimonies on the impact of government social protection programs to their families and community.

“Maipagmamalaki kong sabihin na dahil sa pagtutulungan ng amingkomunidad at suporta ng DSWD aynagkaroonkami ng farm to market road na nagbukas ng maramingoportunidadtulad ng mabilis na tranportasyon sa amin ng aking mga kabarangay,” community volunteer Julia Viduya said.

The symposium was also joined by the Philippine National Police, Philippine Army, academe- Occidental Mindoro State College, Civil Society Organizations, officials of local government units and representatives from media.

Listahanan 2015 database re-launches in Romblon

ODIONGAN Romblon- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA has re-launched the ‘Listahanan 2015 Database: Regional Profile of the Poor’ in this town yesterday, 14 October.

Results show that the town of San Jose Romblon posted the highest magnitude of identified poor with 1,030 (47.1%) poor households followed by Calatrava town with 871 (42.6%) poor households and on the 3rd rank was the town of Sta. Fe with 1,520 (41.7%) poor households.

In MIMAROPA region, from the 569,316 households assessed and validated, 207,863 or 36.5 percent are identified poor and in Romblon 19,860 households are identified as poor.

June this year, the ‘Listahanan 2015 Database’ was first launched in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. However, DSWD realized the need to intensify its campaign to other provinces knowing the geographical setting of the region.

The Provincial Government of Romblon and Philippine Health Insurance Corporation both shared their experiences in using the ‘Listahanan Data’ in the identification of potential beneficiaries of Social Protection Programs for the poor.

“We considered Listahanan as an important reference in the implementation of H.E.A.R.T. – health, education and environment, agriculture, revenue generation, tourism, transparency and true public service, for the people of Romblon towards sustainable and inclusive development,” said Bellie Faminialan of Provincial Social Welfare Office.

According to PhilHealth Officer Andrew Faa, health insurance in Romblon has now covered 98 percent of families from the 17 municipalities province wide.

Prior to the database launching, the Department displayed ‘Listahanan Exhibits’ in Romblon State University- Main Campus and in Provincial Capitol for public viewing and for increasing knowledge and awareness about statistics and profile of the poor particularly in Romblon province.

The re-launching aims to showcase the results of the second round household assessment, which was attended by various national and local government agencies and media partners. ###

DSWD, DOH, PhilHealth renew partnership to enhance basic social protection for the poor in MIMAROPA

MANILA City- The improvement of social protection programs is one of the major thrusts of the current Philippine government in order to provide genuine change and development to all Filipino citizens, most especially to the poor and the vulnerable sector.

In line with this agenda, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), the Department of Health (DOH), and the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PHIC) renewed their partnership to harmonize delivery of social services and to enhance the efficiency of social protection programs for poor Filipino households through the Social Protection Support Initiative (SPSI) – Convergence Project memorandum of agreement (MOA) signing yesterday in Manila.

SPSI is an umbrella collaboration of three social protection projects: Sustaining Interventions in Poverty Alleviation and Governance (SIPAG) implemented by the DSWD to enhance the capacity of local social welfare and development offices (LSWDOs) to manage cases through the usage of the electronic social case management system (e-SCMS); Watching Over Mothers and Babies (WOMB) implemented by the DOH which facilitates access to and utilization of the agency’s maternal, neonatal, and child health and nutrition (MNCHN) services at the local level; and, the PHIC’s Sigurado at Garantisadong Insurance Pangkalusugan (SAGIP) which proactively registers all Filipinos in the health care system and remind their members to regularly pay their contributions to continuously avail of their health care benefits.

The convergence pilot project aims to create an interoperable or integrated e-referral system across SIPAG, WOMB and SAGIP to institutionalize cross agency data sharing and standards which will enable more improved means of ensuring that basic social protection services are received by poor and marginalized client-beneficiaries.

Under this agreement, the pilot-testing of the SPSI shall be expanded to 11 municipalities in Occidental Mindoro, namely: Abra de Ilog, Calintaan, Looc, Lubang, Magsaysay, Mamburao, Paluan, Rizal, Sablayan, San Jose, and Sta. Cruz.

In her message during the event, DSWD Secretary Judy M. Taguiwalo expressed her support to deliver efficient service to the public.

“Inaasahan natin na ang SPSI ay tutulong sa ating mga social workers at development workers na mapabilis at magawang efficient ang proseso, at maihatid ang mga agarang solusyon kasama rito ang pag-refer sa mga tamang ahensya at serbisyo sa mamamayan upang agad na malaman ang mga interventions na kanilang pangangailangan (We expect that the SPSI will help our social workers and development workers to hasten and efficiently improve the process of providing immediate interventions to the public, including referral of cases to proper agencies and prompt delivery of services),” she said.

She also underscored that the proper implementation of the project is vital to help reduce the repetitive collection of data and information from client-beneficiaries.

Lastly, she acknowledged the partnership of local government units and national government agencies to bring the programs and services of the current administration closer to the public.

“Ang pagtutulungan ng bawat ahensya, kasama ang mga lokal na pamahalaan, ay kasama sa direksyong tinatahak ng bagong administrasyon upang lubos na maihatid ang tiyak at aktwal na pangangailangan ng bawat isa sa ating mga mahirap na mamamayan (The direction of the new administration is to improve the collaboration of all agencies, including local governments, to deliver the exact and actual needs of our poor citizens). ###
