DSWD provides financial aid to LSIs in Hatid Tulong initiative

A social worker of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) facilitates the payout of financial aid to a locally stranded individual during the Hatid Tulong Grand Send Off at Quirino Grandstand.

In continuation of the efforts to address the needs of locally stranded individuals (LSIs) in Metro Manila, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) provided more than P5 million worth of financial assistance to some 2,242 LSIs during the government’s Hatid Tulong Grand Send Off activity on July 4 and 5, 2020 at the Quirino Grandstand.

Hatid Tulong is a transport assistance initiated by different national government agencies to aid LSIs as they return to their respective provinces.

As part of the health and safety protocol, the LSIs underwent rapid testing from the Department of Health (DOH) for the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) before they received travel authorization from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Aside from the cash assistance provided  through the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS), the Department’s Field Offices will also distribute Family Food Packs (FFPs) to the LSIs once they reach their respective hometowns.

The LSIs are also required to undergo a second screening and a mandatory 14-day quarantine to ensure that they are free from COVID-19.

DSWD will continue its coordination with concerned agencies to ensure the provision of assistance to remaining LSIs in Metro Manila. ###

In continuation of the efforts to address the needs of locally stranded individuals (LSIs) in Metro Manila, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), together with other government agencies, held a Hatid Tulong Grand Send-Off activity on July 4 and 5, 2020 at the Quirino Grandstand.

Hatid Tulong was a transport assistance initiative by different national government agencies to aid LSIs as they return to their respective provinces. More than 2,000 LSIs comprised of students, workers, Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), and local tourists availed of the free transportation assistance.

The first day of the send-off catered to LSIs returning to Mindanao, while the second day assisted stranded locals traveling back to the Visayas and Northern Luzon.

As part of the health and safety protocol, the LSIs underwent rapid testing from the Department of Health (DOH) for the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) before they received a travel authorization from the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG).

Meanwhile, DSWD provided financial assistance to the LSIs under the Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS). DSWD Field Offices will also distribute hot meals or Family Food Packs (FFPs) to the returnees once they reach their hometowns.

The LSIs are also required to undergo a second screening and a mandatory 14-day quarantine in their respective hometowns to ensure that they are free from COVID-19.

DSWD-10 extends relief augmentation to Locally Stranded Individuals through LGUs in the Region

DSWD-10 continues to repack family food packs in preparation for requests from LGUs needing augmentation from the Department.

To support the local government units (LGUs) in responding to the needs of locally stranded individuals who were stranded in their provinces within Region 10 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office 10 (DSWD-10) extended relief augmentation to the LGUs to suffice the much needed relief for the stranded individuals.

As of July 5, 2020, the DSWD-10 extended various relief goods with a valuation total of P539,377.17. The relief goods were composed of rice, canned goods, sachets of coffee, and kitchen utensils. The food support was requested by the LGUs who hosted the stranded individuals while they are waiting for a chance to go to their respective homes.

The relief goods were in response to the requests of the local government units who hosted the locally stranded individuals who cannot travel back to their hometowns because of the travel prohibitions issued by the government to contain the spread of COVID-19.

LSIs that were provided with the relief support were students, families, and returning individuals stranded mostly in Iligan City and Cagayan de Oro City. Per mandate, the DSWD-10 continues to respond to the requests of LGUs who are needing augmentation to support their constituents who are affected by the coronavirus.###

DSWD, other gov’t agencies to assist Filipino transferees from Sabah

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), together with the members of the Inter-Agency Task Group Western Mindanao for the Management of the Returning Filipinos (IATGWM-MREFs), will provide assistance to some 5,300 Filipino transferees from Sabah, Malaysia.

The transfer is being organized after the Malaysian government’s implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO) to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) in their country.

The Filipino transferees from Sabah will arrive in batches to ensure that government health protocol against Covid-19 will be followed. This includes undergoing the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test before being allowed to board the ship and observing the social distancing policy while on board.

DSWD assured that only those who tested negative of the RT-PCR will be allowed to be brought to Tawi-Tawi and Zamboanga City as the main drop-off points.

The Department has already coordinated with the local executives of Basilan, Sulu, Tawi-Tawi (BASULTA) provinces and the city government of Zamboanga City for the arrival of the Filipino transferees. Zamboanga City Mayor Maria Isabel Climaco-Salazar chairs the local IATGWM-MREF.

For transferees with registered addresses outside of the main drop-off points, DSWD and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) have also coordinated with concerned local government units (LGUs) to facilitate their transfer and provide appropriate assistance, including referral for proper accommodation or health facilities, when necessary.

The Department will also assess the emotional state of the transferees in terms of their anxiety and stress level using the Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS)-21 assessment tool. The result of the assessment will be useful to gauge other psycho-social interventions that they need.

Likewise, DSWD, through its Field Office IX, will provide family food packs, sleeping kits, and hygiene kits to all the transferees. The Department has allotted around P39 million to assist them. In addition, the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) Ministry of Social Services will provide them with financial assistance.

Other members of the inter-agency task force include the DILG, Department of Health-Bureau of Quarantine, Philippine Ports Authority, Department of Transportation-Maritime Industry Authority, Department of National Defense, National Intelligence Coordinating Authority, Armed Forces of the Philippines-Western Mindanao Command, Philippine National Police, Department of Foreign Affairs, Bureau of Immigration, Bureau of Customs, Office of Civil Defense, Overseas Workers Welfare  Administration, Department of Labor and Employment, Philippine Coast Guard, and the BARMM Ministries of Social Services and Development, Interior and Local Government, and Health and Transportation.

All members of the inter-agency task force will prepare a long-term plan for the integration of the transferees in their respective communities. ###
