DSWD rehabs thousands of malnourished children

Cagayan de Oro City — Thousands of children in Northern Mindanao are now medically considered as healthy after 120 days of supplementary feeding by the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

DSWD’s Nutritionist-Dietitian Rechel Grace C. Ceniza disclosed that out of 123,991 children, only 4,345 are left malnourished after being subjected to supplementary feeding for 120 days.

Ceniza said Day Care Centers throughout the region followed a 20-day cycle menu, serving variety of viands and rice in a day.

She said the menu is standard supplement to the three meals for a child under the modified nutritional recipes for the implementation of supplementary feeding.

Bukidnon province tops the number of malnourished children during the 2013-2014 cycle of feeding with 39,145. But, it declines after the 120-day period of feeding with 3,432 left malnourished or 8.8 percent.

Camiguin has the least number of malnourished children in the entire region with 2,510 at the start of the program. Of the number, only 121 children are left malnourished.

Ceniza explained that malnourished children are those found either severely underweight or underweight.

“The 120 days feeding program has improved the nutritional status of 11,736 malnourished beneficiaries due to strengthened monitoring and coordination among DSWD, parents, and local government units,” the nutritionist-dietitian added.

Parents have been involved in feeding preparations and sessions while Day Care Workers supervised the program.

Meanwhile, Atty. Araceli F. Solamillo, Regional Director of DSWD Northern Mindanao; is optimistic that several children in the region will become healthy this 2014-2015 4th feeding cycle, which will start this July 2014.

DSWD has targeted 115,430 children, currently enrolled at day care centers.

Lanao town inaugurates 13 community-identified and implemented projects

Lanao del Norte – 13 community projects were inaugurated last June 26, 2014 in Kauswagan, Lanao del Norte which were made possible through the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services – Peaceful and Resilient Communities (KALAHI-CIDSS PAMANA) – a community-driven development (CDD)project implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

The subprojects inaugurated were expansion or potable water systems, construction of pathways, farm-to-market roads improvements, and two-classroom units. The total project costs totaled to more than P4.7 Million Pesos.

Barangays Libertad, Inudaran, Tacub, Kawit Occidental, Tugar, Poblacion, Kawit Oriental, Cayontor, Baraason, Delabayan, Tingintingin, Bagumbayan, and Paiton completed each of their subprojects under the KALAHI-CIDSS PAMANA with a set of their own community volunteers.

Kauswagan has been victimized with unstable peace and order situation for years, following a series of attacks brought about by armed conflicts. To bring progress and stabilize the security and peace for its residents, the KALAHI-CIDSS PAMANA was launched in the said municipality to strengthen peacebuilding, reconstruction, and development in the area.

KALAHI-CIDSS PAMANA is the government’s peace and development framework that aims at putting a permanent and just closure to internal armed conflict through peace negotiations and undertaking programs that addresses the root causes of conflict through interventions on the ground. It is done through convergence of delivery of basic social services; good governance through responsive, transparent and accountable resource allocation and utilization, and community empowerment.

With the Project, the DSWD guides the community members in formulating the peace and development project criteria to determine which identified projects are feasible and are in line with the community’s common peace vision and the PAMANA goal of peaceful and resilient communities. The members identify and select projects that clearly address conflict situations in the community that they have identified. ###smu
