DSWD Field Office X established the first Regional Technical Working Group Cluster III for the Implementation of Aftercare, Reintegration, and Transformation Support for Recovering Drug Dependents (RDDs)

The Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office X, led by Regional Director Mari-Flor A. Dollaga officially made ties with the members of the Regional Technical Working Group Cluster III through signing the Memorandum of Agreement on October 15, 2021, via virtual teleconference.

Among all the implementing regions in the country, the DSWD Field Office X as the lead agency of Cluster III is the first to create its Regional Technical Working Group Committee. Working hand-in-hand with its partner members from the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Department of Health (DOH), DOJ-Parole and Probation Administration, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and Philippine Sports Commission (PSC), this committee will be responsible for the Aftercare, Reintegration and Transformation Support for the Recovering Drug Dependents.

In response to the growing number of drug dependents who have surrendered since the Duterteโ€™s administration began its intensified campaign against illegal drugs, the national government agencies including the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) are undertaking convergent efforts to combat illegal drugs and to provide government-wide support treatment and rehabilitation for recovering drug dependents. With this, the creation of the Regional Technical Working Group is made possible to intensify awareness/advocacy on Cluster III; prepare a plan of action, guidelines/directions about the implementation of Cluster III; synchronize efforts towards the effective and efficient implementation of aftercare programs to the recovering drug dependents and their families; provide guidance, technical assistance and capability building in an integrated manner on matters relating to Cluster III based on their agencyโ€™s mandate and expertise; oversee/monitor respective implementation to be consistent with its goals and objectives; coordinate and facilitate linkage/networking with other National Government Agencies (NGAs) and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) and other possible partners/stakeholders in the provision/referral of aftercare programs/services, and act as a body in discussing and resolving Cluster III related issues/complaints/grievances received from the stakeholders.

Moreover, the DSWD Field Office X through its Social Technology Section has been implementing the Yakap Bayan Program which is a rehabilitation and reintegration framework for the strategic and coordinated provision of services to recovering drug dependents. This program works with the different LGUs in Region 10 to offer community-based aftercare and reintegration model for persons who used illegal drugs. Since the programโ€™s first implementation in 2020, DSWD FO X has already had a Memorandum of Agreement for its adoption with the 8 LGUs in Region 10 specifically in Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte; Sugbongcogon, Misamis Oriental; Tudela, Misamis Occidental; Pangantucan, Bukidnon; Binuangan, Misamis Oriental; Salay, Misamis Oriental; Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental; and the Provincial Local Government Unit of Misamis Oriental.

The Regional Social Technology Section has also successfully endorsed the Yakap Bayan Program during the Regional Development Council X โ€“ Social Development Committee meeting for support of the RDC-X, through the Social Development Committee-X, to enjoin the: a) Local Government Units to adopt/institutionalize the YBP with corresponding resources, using the whole of LGU approach; and b) the concerned NGAs to provide technical support and resource augmentation, as applicable.

The DSWD Field Office X will always be in line with the building of a strong network of support for the recovering drug personalities, together with their families and communities, in transforming surrenderees into leaders through working hand-in-hand with its partner agencies in keeping the country comfortable, peaceful, and just.

In response to the need of the African Swine Fever (ASF)-hit farmers in Alubijid, Misamis Oriental, the DSWD Field Office X extended a total of 281 Family Food Packs (FFPs) to the Department of Agriculture Region 10 for its distribution to the said farmers.

The 281 bonafide farmers lost their primary livelihood on the account of ASF contagion, hence the Department of Agriculture will be distributing the African Swine Fever Indemnification with the Family Food Packs in order for these farmers to get back on track.

The DSWD will always be in line and in full support with the programs and services of the other National Government Agencies which aims to improve the quality of living of every Filipino family.

Community-based trainings face challenges brought by limited physical gatherings

The Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services National Community-Driven Development Program (KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP) Additional Financing affords community members and local officials to participate in pre-implementation trainings that will prepare them for the implementation of chosen sub-projects in their community. But because of the pandemic, balancing safety concerns and indispensability of the trainings have become a challenge for its program facilitators and partner local institutions.

Pre-Implementation trainings conducted by KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP provide fundamental knowledge on community-based processes for the delivery of the sub-project; beginning with financial management, procurement, and infrastructure management.

Eight municipalities in Region X under the Program have successfully conducted the pre-implementation trainings with observance to the strictest health protocols.

Barangay Lourdes Chairperson Genebeb Cabusas of Dangcagan, Bukidnon said that their learnings during the trainings have been useful not only for their sub-project implementation but also for other development programs undertaken by their barangay.

Barangay Poblacion Chairperson Vilma Guhil also expressed that despite the current situation of the pandemic, attending the KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP initiated trainings is a gain on their end.

The pre-implementation trainings are found to have an impact on uplifting the confidence of community volunteers who, mostly, have low educational background and minimal project management experience, were given the opportunity to participate in the development process.

Dangcagan Mayor Fruto B. Dandasan, Jr. expressed his gratitude and excitement after learning that the municipality of Dangcagan is included in the additional financing of KALAHI-CIDSS NCDDP.

LGU Dangcagan has committed a local counterpart amounting to Php3,237,932.30 (cash and in-kind) for the implementation of Phase 1 KALAHI CIDSS NCDPP Additional Financing. Learning about the Program from local leaders in neighboring municipalities, Mayor Dandasan is eager to support the program to enable community empowerment and improve access to basic social services.

October 1, 2021 | With the convergence of all the National Government Agencies (NGAs), the Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office X actively participated during the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP) Mini Caravan held at Iligan City Central Elementary School.

The PCUP Field Operations Division for Mindanao spearheaded the caravan with the theme: โ€œPinagsama-Samang Serbisyo Para sa Tao,โ€ which aims to provide orientation on government pro-poor programs or services and livelihood opportunities from the different government agencies. This caravan is an avenue for the people to be aware of and be able to know regarding the different programs and services of the different NGAs.

The DSWD FO X staff gave an orientation to the officials from the different barangays of Iligan City as to the programs and services of the department; from its requirements to its processes. There is also a booth/query desk at the front part/outside the designated DSWD area, managed by the DSWD Iligan satellite staff, to entertain issues and concerns from the public.

The Department is constantly coordinating with the different NGAs and LGUs in order to continuously provide efficient and effective services to its people at any given time and avenue.
