DSWD MIMAROPA, Maxicare conduct mobile medical check-up for staff

MALATE MANILA – In pursuit to strengthen the Employee Wellness Program of Department of Social Welfare and Development MIMAROPA, a Maxicare Mobile Clinic was set up in the Regional Field Office which provided accessible Annual Physical Examination (APE) for employees last Wednesday, August 30.

The said activity aims to promote healthier lifestyle among DSWD staff and to provide accessible medical care to them.

Maxicare Mobile Clinic saves time, money and effort of our DSWD staff in accessing the medical services they needed,” says Rose Jean Mayrena, HROfficer.

Medical Services provided include urinalysis, blood pressure test, blood chemistry test, pop smear, ECG, X-Ray, and general physical examination.

APE is promoted to employees in order to: 1) check for possible diseases so they can be treated early; 2) identify any issues that may become medical concerns in the future; 3) update necessary immunizations; and 4) ensure that staff are maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Mobile Medical Check-up was one of the initiatives of Human Resource Development Unit (HRDU) in partnership with the Social Welfare Employees Association of the Philippines (SWEAP) and Maxicare Healthcare Corporation.

This is in accordance to Memorandum Circular #13 Series of 2013 or Guidelines in Promoting Wellness in DSWD which states that the Department shall provide opportunities for employees to nurture relationships, avoid burn-out, de-stress and maintain their passion for work. ###

Naglalayon ang aktibidad na paigtingin pa ang adbokisiya sa pagsulong ng mga karapatan at pribiliheyo ng PWDs, mapakinggan ang kanilang mga boses at maipakita ang kanilang mga natatanging talento.

Upang pormal na simulan ang pagdiriwang ng 39th National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week, nagbahagi ng inspirational message si Purficacion Ariola, DSWD Protective Services Unit Head.

“Mayroon pong tatlong K para sa ating mga minamahal na PWDs: Karapatan, Kakayahan at Katuparan! Ang mga karapatan po ng mga may kapansanan ay kinakailangan nating proteksyuna mayroon silang mga natatanging kakayahan na. Ang lahat ng ito ay maari nating maisakatuparan kung magtutulungan po tayong lahat,” ika ni Purificacion Ariola, DSWD MIMAROPA Protective Services Unit Head.

Datos ukol sa PWDs

Ayon sa Listahanan Database, may naitalang 14, 453 na mahihirap sa buong MIMAROPA: 1, 559 dito ay nagmula sa Romblon; 3, 192 mula sa Occidental Mindoro; 3, 272 ang nasa Oriental Mindoro; 1, 073 ang nagmula sa Marinduque; at 5, 357 naman ang natukoy sa Palawan.

Sa mga natukoy na mahihirap na PWDs, 7,995 (55.3%) ang lalaki samantalang 6,458 (44.7%) naman ang babae.

Ang Listahanan ay isang pamamaraan ng pamahalaan upang matukoy kung sinu-sino at nasaan ang mga mahihirap sa buong Pilipinas.

PAGBUBUKLOD PARA SA PWDs

Ang iba’t ibang ahensya ng gobyerno ay nagtulungan upang makapaghandog ng may malasakit na serbisyo para sa mga PWDs.

Nagsagawa ng Information Caravan ang Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) upang mapalawig pa ang kaaalaman ng mga PWDs at ng publiko sa mga programa at serbisyo ng departamento tulad ng Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipinong Program, Kapit-bisig Laban sa Kahirapan Comprehensive Integrated Delivery of Social Services (KALAHI-CIDSS), Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP), Listhanan at Assistance to Individuals or Families in Crisis Situation (AICS).

Bukod pa rito nag-sponsor din ng libreng masahe ang DSWD upang mapawi ang pagod ng mga PWDs.

Samantala, nagsagawa naman ng Medical Check-up ang Department of Health (DOH) at Tahanang Walang Hagdan. Naghandog din ang DOH ng mga libreng wheelchair, tungkod at walker para sa mga PWDs.

Nagbigay naman ng pagsasanay ukol sa Food and Beverage ang Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) at ng presentasyon tungkol sa Food Preparation at Packaging ang Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

Ang Lokal na Pamahalaan ng Odiongan Romblon ay nagbigay ng libreng gupit sa mga PWDs samantalang ang Provincial Government naman ng Romblon ay nagkaroon ng serbisyong manicure at pedicure at libreng sakay sa pedicab. Namahagi naman ng mga binhing pananim ang Department of Agriculture.

KAYA KO: Abilympics Contest para sa mga Persons with Disabilities

Sa kabila naman ng masamang panahon at pagpapaliban ng walk for development, hindi nagpatinag ang mga PWDs na mapalawig ang kanilang mga karapatan sa pamamagitan ng pagpapakita ng ‘placards’ na naglalaman ng mga mensahe at kasabihan ukol sa may mga kapansanan.

Gayundin, hindi nagpahuli ang mga PWDs na ibahagi ang kanilang mga natatanging talento sa isanagawang ‘Abilympics’ o iba’t ibang patimpalak para sa mga PWDs.

Ang ilan sa mga patimpalak na ito ay painting, cooking, cake decoration, flower arrangement, singing at dancing contest.

Pinatunayan nila na hindi hadlang ang kapansanan upang makalikha ng mga obra maestra at makamit ang minimithing pangarap.

Nagbahagi ng testimonya ang isa sa mga representatives ng PWDs ukol sa pagbabago ng kanilang buhay dahil sa mga programa at serbisyong handog pamahalaan.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako sa gobyerno dahil po pinakita nila sa amin na may halaga kami. Pinaramdam po nila sa amin na hindi po namin dapat ikahiya ang gaming kapansan, bagkus ay gawin itong inspirasyon para mas magsikap pa at matupad ang aming mga pangarap,” ayon sa testimonya ng isang PWD na kahalok sa pagdiriwang ng 39th NDPR Week.

DSWD calls to ‘End AIDS Together’

CANDLELIGHTING CEREMONY. Participants lighted candles in order to remember and honor those who lost their lives because of AIDS.

In order to raise community awareness about Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) and decrease its related stigma and discrimination, Department of Social Welfare and Development MIMAROPA Region spearheaded the AIDS Candlelight Memorial Day in Puerto Princesa Palawan.

AIDS Candlelight Memorial Day is a yearly activity commemorated every 3rd week of May in remembrance of the departed AIDS-affected individuals and to give support to People Living with HIV (PLHIV) and their families.

Activity was in partnership with the Local Government Units of Palawan, Department of Health (DOH), Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), and Faith-Based Groups.

“Despite the advocacy of many countries on the prevention of HIV/AIDS, the incidence continue to rise, thus, here in our country we really need to work harder to strengthen our fight against HIV/AIDS,” said Dr. Louie R. Ocampo, Head of  HIV/AIDS Treatment Hub of Ospital ng Palawan.

Since 1984 to date, there are already 200 cases of HIV/AIDS accounted for in Palawan.  Of which, 96 people living with HIV are now undergoing treatment at Palawan Treatment Hub while six (6) were not able to survive according to Dr. Ocampo.

Josephine Macalagay, DSWD Social Technology Unit Head, expresses that DSWD organized the activity in order to provide an avenue to gather partner-stakeholders, people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV)  and their family to collectively support fight against HIV/AIDS.

Josephine Macalagay, Social Technology Unit Head, expressed DSWD’s commitment to support fight against HIV/AIDS. According to Macalagay: “DSWD is continuously providing social services for HIV/AIDS affected individuals by giving financial and medical assistance. Also, we give emotional support not just with affected but also with their families.”

 Highlights of activity were sharing of testimonies of people living with HIV/AIDS and candle lighting: inner circle was lighted by guests and government officials while outer circle was lighted by youth participants in order to showcase convergence of generations in advocating fight against HIV/AIDS.

“It was painful for me to have HIV. I experienced discrimination from the community but it didn’t stop me from living my life to the fullest. Luckily, I was blessed with people who provided me emotional and medical support. Now it’s time for me to give back by volunteering to the organizations that helped me. Let us End Aids Together!” voiced out by one of the PLHIV.

DSWD intensifies SocTech Advocacy on ‘War on Drugs’

MALATE, Manila – Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA, in cooperation with Local Government Unit of Abra De Ilog, Occidental Mindoro, intensified the ‘anti-drug’ advocacy campaign of the government by organizing a three-day Strategic Planning  for the Implementation of Completed Social Technology Project on Family Drug Abuse Prevention Program (FDAPP) last April 25 to 27, 2017.

Strategic Planning aims to: 1) Better understand the context of the drug addiction problem in Abra De Ilog; 2) Cultivate a deeper understanding of FDAPP and develop a logical Framework for the municipality; and 3) Identify project implementation activities and clarify roles and responsibilities of participants.

Workshop seminar was participated by Barangay Officials from nine (9) barangays in Abra De Ilog, Occidental Mindoro: Amado, Balao, Cabacao, Poblacion, Lumang Bayan, Wawa, San Vicente, Tibag and Udala.

Family Drug Abuse Prevention Program

Family Drug Abuse Prevention Program is a community based prevention program to educate and prepare families and their members as well as the communities regarding the adverse effects of drug abuse.

Josephine B. Macalagay, Social Technology Unit Head of DSWD MIMAROPA, Discussed the Guidelines in the Implementation of FDAPP

 “Family, as the basic unit of the Filipino society, has a significant role in the education and awareness on the ill effects of dangerous drugs,” highlights Josephine B. Macalagay, Social Technology Unit Head of DSWD MIMAROPA during her orientation on ‘Guidelines in the Implementation of FDAPP’.

FDAPP further aims to equip the families with parenting and life skills towards a drug free home.

Primarily, FDAPP is based on RA 9165 “Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002” Section 41, Article IV which states the involvement of the family and tasked it to be primarily responsible for education and awareness on Drug Abuse Prevention.

 

Components of FDAPP

In order to ensure effective implementation of the program, there are four (4) main strategic components of FDAPP: 1) Organization of Families or transformation of families into family councils who will conduct drug abuse prevention activities within their groups/communities based on their needs; 2) Capacity Building which includes conduct of training activities such as life skills, leaders training, peer counselling and values education; 3) Advocacy and Social Mobilization such as dialogue sharing among parents and children, symposium, and lecture discussion which may heighten support and awareness in the implementation of FDAPP; and 4) Networking and Alliance Building which involves collaboration and cooperation with existing anti-drug abuse councils, government, non-government organizations, parents/youth organizations’ on raising awareness of drug abuse prevention issues that would affect the families and community.

Macalagay, during her orientation, explains, “We will conduct these strategic components of FDAP in order to ensure successful implementation of the program. For now, we are conducting strategic planning in order to better understand the context of drug addiction problem in Abra De Ilog and to develop logical framework for the FDAPP of the province.”

Convergence on War on Drugs

Collaboration and convergence of various National Government Agencies (NGAs), Local Government Units (LGUs), Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) and other concerned entities made the workshop seminar more extensive and meaningful.

Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) MIMAROPA Representative Grace D. Lano discussed the ‘National and Regional Situationer of the Drug Trafficking in the Whole World’ and how the PDEA worked for this problem. While, Abra De Ilog Chief of Police Roel Gabito conferred the ‘Project Double Barrel’ and Barangay Drug-Cleaning Operation ‘Oplan Tokhang’ in the municipality.

On the other hand, Rowena Espiloy from the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) lectured on ‘Preventing Drug Addiction among Children and Adolescent’.

With the lectures provided, Emmanuelle M. Protasio, main facilitator of the activity, guided the participants in crafting a concrete and strategic drug prevention plan for their respective barangays.

At the end of the workshop seminar, Abra De Ilog Mayor Ma. Gloria M. Constantino and Vice Mayor Orlando Quito, together with barangay officials, committed to support and implement the Family Drug Abuse Prevention Program and exert their utmost effort to make Abra De Ilog a drug-free home for their constituents.

The National Drug Rehabilitation Program of the government has three pillars. Pillar I refers to the creation of a data base of drug surrenderers, Pillar II is the community-based rehabilitation pillar, while Pillar III refers to the aftercare, reintegration, and transformation  support for recovering drug dependents. The DSWD, as mandated by President Rodrigo R. Duterte, is one of the lead agencies for Pillar II and Pillar III.

Noo’y Utak Talangka, Ngayo’y Utak MANHAK: Kwento ng Tagumpay ng Blue Crab Fattening Production ng SLP MANHAK Association

 

Bago ito nagawa, yung project namin, napakahirap talaga ng dinaanan namin. Mahirap po pala kapag hindi naniniwala sa’yo ang mga taong nasa paligid mo, yung hihilahin ka pa nila pababa. ‘Yun po ang pinanghawakan ko, sabi ko sa sarili ko na ‘talagang itutuloy ko ito, hindi pwede na magpapatalo kami sa mga sabi-sabi,” ito ang mga katagang sinambit ni Luz E. Soriano, Presidente ng SLP MANHAK Association, ng tanungin siya ukol sa mga pagsubok na kanilang pinagdaanan bago makamit ang tagumpay ng kanilang Blue Crab Fattening Production.

Ang Blue Crab Fattening Production ng SLP MANHAK Association (Sustainable Livelihood Program – Manggagawang Aktibo na Naglalayong Harapin ang Kinabukasan), sa gabay at suporta ng Sustainable Livelihood Program ng Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office MIMAROPA Region, ang hinirang na ‘Kampyon’ sa kategoryang Micro-Enterprise sa nakaraang SLP Bangon Kabuhayan 2017.

Bayanihan: Sandata sa Kahirapan

BAYANIHAN. Ang miyembro ng SLP MANHAK Asosasyon at kanilang pamilya ay nagtulungan at nagbayanihan upang mabuo ang kanilang proyekto.

Nagsimula ang proyekto noong Disyembre 2015 sa Brgy. Manhac, Looc, Romblon.

Dahil napapalibutan ng karagatan at kabundukan ang kanilang lugar at sagana ito sa yamang dagat, napagpasyahan ng grupo na pagpapataba ng alimasag ang kanilang gawing proyekto.

Sa kanilang laban sa kahirapan, pamilya at pagbabayanihan ang kanilang naging sandigan.

Nagtulungan ang mga miyembro ng MANHAK, pati ang kanilang pamilya, upang mabuo ang proyekto – simula sa paghahabi ng net, pagtatayo ng cage, paghuli at pagpapataba ng alimasag.

“Dahil wala naman po kaming totoong sweldo sa pagtayo nito, pagbabayanihan po ginawa namin para tuloy-tuloy po. ‘Yun pong mga asawa at anak namin, nagtulong-tulong po kami sa pagbubuhat… sa lahat, para matapos po ito,” sambit ni Luz na may ningning sa kanyang mga mata.

Pati ang iba’t-ibang ahensya ng gobyerno ay nagtulungan upang suportahan ang proyekto. Naglaan ng P525, 741.00 ang SLP-DSWD para sa Skills Training at Cash for Building Livelihood Assets (CBLA) para sa pagtatayo ng kanilang ‘Foot Bridge at Bamboo Cottage’; nagbigay naman ang Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) at Department of Science and Techlogy (DOST) ng training ukol sa pagnenegosyo at teknolohiya sa pagpapataba ng alimasag; sinuportahan naman ng Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) ang pagbibigay permit para mag-operate ang asosasyon, nagsagawa ng ‘Food for Work’ ang Municipal Social Welfare and Development (MSWDO) at nagbigay ng environmental permit ang Local Government Unit (LGU) ng Looc, Romblon upang magamit ng asosasyon ang lugar na pinagtirikan ng kanilang proyekto.

 

Women Empowerment

WOMEN EMPOWERMENT. Siyam (9) sa 10 miyembro ng asosasyon ay babae. Katuwang ang kanilang pamilya, sila ang gumagawa ng mabibigat na trabaho tulad ng pagbubuhat ng kawayan, paggawa ng ‘cage’ ng mga alimasag at pagsisid sa karagatan.

Bukod sa pagbabayanihan, ipinamalas din ng grupo ang ‘Women Empowerment’, siyam (9) sa 10 miyembro ng SLP MANHAK Association ay kababaihan. Higit sa lahat, babae ang kanilang presidente.

Pinatunayan ng asosasyon na hindi basehan ang kasarian upang maging matagumpay sa buhay.

Ang mga kababaihan ng SLP MANHAK Assoc., katuwang ang kanilang pamilya, ang nagpasan ng mabibigat na trabaho tulad ng paghahabi ng net, paggawa ng ‘Cage’ ng talangka, pagtatayo ng tulay at pagsisid sa karagatan.

“Kami po talagang gumawa ng lahat ng makikita ninyo dito. Kami po ang naglala ng mga net, nagbuhat ng mga kawayan para po mabuo ang aming cage at tulay. Sumisisid din po kami sa karagatan para po manguha ng mga talangka na aming papatabain, pagmamalakaing sambit ni Luz habang inaalala ang malaking kontribusyon ng kababaihan sa kanilang proyekto.

Kirot ng kahirapan ng buhay

Bago natikman ng grupo ang tagumpay, mas masakit pa siguro sa nasipit ng alimasag ang kanilang naranasan.

Noong hindi pa nagsisimula ang proyekto, kumikirot ang kanilang puso na makita ang kanilang pamilya na hikahos sa buhay — hindi sapat ang kanilang kita sa pangingisda sa pang araw-araw na gastusin, hindi sila makabili ng kagamitan sa bahay at higit sa lahat wala silang pantustos sa edukasyon ng mga anak.

“Mahirap po talaga ang buhay namin bago itong proyekto. Kulang pa minsan sa pangkain namin. Tapos napilitan akong patigilin yung college ko na nag-aaral ng Political Science. Masakit po para sa isang magulang na patigilin ang kanilang mga anak,” sagot ni Luz habang nanginginig ang kanyang boses sa pagpigil sa pagpatak ng luha sa kanyang mga mata.

Bukod pa rito, dahil sa hindi naman madaliang makita at makamtan ang bunga ng paghihirap, marami rin sa mga miyembro ng SLP MANHAK Association ang pinanghinaan ng loob sa kalagitnaan ng kanilang proyekto. Kumalas sila sa asosasyon sa pag-aakalang hindi magtatagumpay ang proyekto.

“Marami po ang umalis sa grupo namin dahil nga po wala naman kaming sweldo sa paggawa nito. Simula po 23 miyembro eh 10 nalang po kami. Kami po yung nagtiwala talaga na magiging matagumpay po itong proyekto naming ito. Kahit wala agad kita simula, go pa rin po kami,” paliwanag ni Luz kung bakit nangalahati nalang ang miyembro ng asosasyon.

 

Taba ng Talangka tungo sa Malusog na Pamumuhay

KAMPYON. Ang Blue Crab Fattening Production ng SLP MANHAK Association, sa gabay at suporta ng SLP-DSWD MIMAROPA, ang hinirang na ‘Kampyon’ sa kategoryang Micro-Enterprise sa nakaraang SLP Bangon Kabuhayan 2017.

Sa tiwala, bayanihan at gabay ng may kapal, naging malusog din ang pamumuhay ng mga taga-SLP MANHAK Assoc. tulad ng mga pinataba nilang alimasag.

Kung dati, ang kita ng bawat miyembro ay 0 hanggang 100 piso, ngayon ay kumikita na sila ng P225.00 kada araw. Para naman sa buong asosasyon, kumikita sila ng P140,00.00 kada buwan.

Nagkaroon na ang asosasyon ngayon ng kanilang sariling ‘motor banca’ at karagdagang ‘fish nets’ na kanilang ginagamit upang higit na mapalawig ang kanilang proyekto.

Nakapagpundar din ang bawat miyembro ng iba’t ibang kagamitan sa bahay tulad ng refrigerator, rice cooker at telebisyon.

Bukod pa rito, natupad na rin nila ang ilan sa kahilingan ng kanilang pamilya. Si Gemma Tabayay, miyembro ng SLP MANHAK Association, ay natupad na ang kahilingan ng kanyang mga anak na makapanood ng malinaw sa kanilang telebisyon. Kamakailan ay nakapagpakabit na sila ng GSAT cable. Si Alita Gaito naman, miyembo din ng asosasyon, ay nakapagbigay ng mas malawak na tahanan para sa kaniyang pamilya ng nakapagpa-second floor siya ng kanilang bahay.

Isa rin sa kanilang pinagmamalaki  ngayon ay ang kanilang kakayanang makapagpaaral ng mga anak. Karamihan sa kanila ay nakapagpatapos na ng kolehiyo.

Sa ngayon, ang anak ni Luz ay bumalik na sa kolehiyo at kumukuha ng kursong BS in Fisheries and Aquatic Resources upang makatulong sa pagpapaunlad ng kanilang Blue Crab Fattening Production.

Malaki rin ang naging kontribusyon ng asosasyon sa pag-unlad ng kanilang komunidad. Isa na sila sa mga pangunahing taga-supply ng alimasag sa iba’t ibang restaurant sa Looc, Romblon at sa karatig na Munisipyo. Pati mga turista sa Boracay ay nakatikim na rin ng kanilang mga matatabang alimasag.

Higit sa lahat, tumaas na ang kanilang kumpyansa sa sarili. Ang dating mahiyain, ngayon ay nagsisilbi ng tagapagsalita sa iba’t ibang okasyon upang maibahagi ang kanilang paglalakbay  at paghihirap tungo sa masagana at matagumpay na proyekto.

Dati’y Utak Talangka, Ngayo’y Utak MANHAK

Ang Utak Talangka ay isa sa mga hindi magandang ugali ng mga Pilipino.  Ito ang mga taong ayaw na may nakaka-lamang sa kanya, kapag nakaka-angat sa buhay ang isang kababayan ay sisiraan niya ito at pag-iisipan ng masama.

Sa una, ito ang malupit na naranasan nga mga taga SLP MANHAK Association — ang pagdudahan ang kanilang kakayanan at hilahin sila pababa upang hindi magtagumpay— pero ngayon, ang mga taong noo’y humamak sa kanila ang siya na nilang katuwang at katulong sa pag-angat sa buhay.

Dahil sa pagsisikap ng SLP MANHAK Association, sila ngayon ay nagsisilbi ng inspirasyon sa kanilang komunidad upang huwag mawalan ng pag-asa, magbayanihan at maging positibo upang makakamtan din ang inaasam na tagumpay sa buhay. Kung dati sila’y may ‘Utak Talangka’ na nanghihigla pababa, ngayon ay meron na silang ‘Utak MANHAK’ na humihila pataas at umaalalay sa tagumpay ng kanilang kapwa. ###

Ika-10 Anibersaryo ng Mangyan Day, Ipinagdiriwang

MAMBURAO, Occidental Mindoro – 1,536 mga katutubo mula sa pitong (7) tribu ng Mangyan— Hanunuo, Alangan, Gubatnon, Iraya, Buhid, Bangon at Tadywan — at mga miyembro ng iba’t ibang organisasyong sumusuporta sa mga IPs ang dumalo sa pagdiriwang ng ika-10 taon ng Araw ng mga Mangyan na inorganisa ng HAGIBBAT-MANGYAN MINDORO.

Ang mga kawani ng Department of Social Welfare and Development Central Office at FO MIMAROPA region ay nakiisa sa selebrasyon upang pakinggan ang kanilang mga tinig at ipakita ang suporta sa pagpupursigi na pangalagaan at protektahan ang kanilang lupaing ninuno. 

Ipinaabot ng mga Mangyan sa Gobyerno at publiko ang mga isyung kanilang ipiniglalaban sa pamamagitan ng kanilang malikhaing pagtatanghal – pagkanta, pagsayaw at pagtula.

Isang dayalogo ang isinagawa ng DSWD at mga lider ng pitong (7) tribu ng Mangyan, Huwebes, ika-27 ng Abril.

Dito inilahad ang kasalukuyang kalagayan ng mga Mangyan, mga isyung kanilang kinakaharap, at resolusyon para sa DSWD.

Sa panig naman ng DSWD, sinagot nila ang mga agam-agam ng mga katutubo at itinala ang mga isyu at hiling na ipaparating sa mga opisyales ng DSWD.

“Kung nasaan po ang mga mahihirap, kung nasaan po ang mga nangangailangan, doon po titindig ang DSWD sa ilalim po ni Sec. Taguiwalo.

Hindi po namin kayang sabihin na Stop Mining kung ang paninindigan po ng administrasyon ay ituloy. Pero yun nga po, gagamitin po ni Sec. Taguiwalo ang kanyang impluwensya at ang kanyang mahabang panahon ng paglilingkod sa sambayanang Pilipino bilang aktibista para ipaabot po sa administrasyon ni Pangulong Duterte na masama ito para sa mamayan at sa mga katutubo, gagawin po niya ito.” – Ina Alleco Silverio, Media Officer of DSWD & Representative of DSWD Sec. Judy M. Taguiwalo during the Mangyan Day 2017.
