DSWD, partners to lead observance of 2020 Adoption Consciousness Celebration

To celebrate the unconditional love between parents and their adopted children, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), in partnership with different national government agencies (NGAs), child-placement institutions, and child-caring institutions will lead the observance of the 2020 Adoption Consciousness Celebration (ACC) on February 1 to 9.

With the theme, “Pagmamahal Palaganapin, Legal na Pag-aampon Ating Gawin! (Spread Unconditional Love through Legal Adoption),” the week-long celebration aims to promote legal adoption as an expression of unconditional love and support to abandoned, neglected, and surrendered children.

The theme also encourages families to undergo legal adoption in order to protect the welfare of adopted children.  The legal adoption process will also ensure the safety, security, and best interest of the adoptive children.

2020 ACC Activities

To commence the celebration, DSWD and members of the National Organizing Committee (NOC) of the 2020 ACC will hold a motorcade from Quirino Grandstand to Quezon City Memorial Circle on February 1. It will be followed by a gathering of adoptive families and a media forum at Quezon City Experience Hall with DSWD officials, representatives from the Judiciary and the Department of Justice (DOJ), and adoptive parents.

Among the topics that will be discussed during the media forum are updates on the implementation of Republic Act No. 11222 or the “Simulated Birth Rectification Act,” warnings on the birth simulation and social media pages facilitating illegal adoption, and information on pending laws related to legal adoption.

The Department, with members of the Association of Child Caring Agencies of the Philippines (ACCAP) will also open Adoption Help Desks on selected malls and churches around the country on February 8 and 9.

DSWD invites the public to join the celebration and promote the legal adoption advocacy in social media through the hashtags, “#adoptionislove” and “#legaladoption” this February. -30-

MIMAROPA Youth Center: A better temporary shelter for CICL

In pursuit of its mandate to deliver efficient programs and services to the vulnerable sectors that it serves, including children in conflict with the law (CICL), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office (FO) MIMAROPA has improved the MIMAROPA Youth Center (MYC).

From a one building-facility built in 2009, the MYC of the DSWD FO IVB now has an Administration Building, two separate dormitories, two stockrooms, a centralized kitchen, and a multi-purpose hall.

According to Bartolome Castillo, a house parent who has been working in MYC since it started its operation, the new improvements to the center is a welcome sight not just to the current clients but also to the staff and visitors.

Malaking tulong na may sarili nang lugar ang mga bata at hindi na nakahalo sa mga staff. May privacy ang mga bata, at makakapag-focus na rin ang mga staff sa trabaho nila,” (It is a huge advantage that the children now have a place of their own and are not sharing a single space with the staff. The children may enjoy their privacy, and the staff can now focus on their tasks), he said.

The renovation of MYC was realized through the Centers and Residential Care Facilities (CRCF) project of the Department. Through the project, Field Office MIMAROPA was given a total of P15.7 million allotment with P9.7 million for the construction and repair of infrastructure sub-projects; P3.8 million for non-infrastructure provisions such as machinery and equipment, furniture and fixtures, semi-expendables and other supplies and materials; and P2.1 million for salaries of additional staff and other project costs.

The blessing and Inauguration of the new facilities of the MIMAROPA Youth Center was held last July 2019.

Located in Bansud, Oriental Mindoro, MYC provides protection and rehabilitation services to CICL to prepare them for their reintegration to their families and communities. The center currently houses 27 CICL who are provided with social, homelife, educational, health promotion, spiritual, practice skills enhancement, sociocultural, and legal services.

Likewise, the center has 19 staff complement composed of social welfare assistants and officers, engineer, house parents, psychometrician, and administrative assistants who ensure the efficient and effective delivery of services to its clients.###
