By Alma L. Tingcang

IPIL, ZamboangaSibugay - The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) celebrated last Jan. 9 its 64th anniversary with the theme “TuloyangPagbabago at Pag-unlad.”

In response to a memorandum issued recently by DSWD-9 Regional Director Zenaida L Arevalo, a motorcade around the municipality was held at 8 a.m., followed by a thanksgiving mass.

SWADT Leader Jasmin A. Albelda, on the other hand,said DSWD’s teambuilding activity through sports and parlor games would be conducted with a “boodle fight” at lunchtime.

Highlighting the activity were the Search for Mr. & Ms. SWADT Ipil and Videoke Singing Competition, showcasing the talents of DSWD personnel including the Pantawid staff, KC-NCDDP, Social Welfare and Development Team (SWADT) and Livelihood Sustainable Program (LSP) employees.

According to Albelda, the DSWD is dedicated to continue the delivery of its various services and programs to help the poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged sectors of the society improve their quality of life.

She reminded the DSWD employees to maintain their dedication and commitment to work with integrity in line with the department’s vision, mission and goals.

“DSWD will untiringly keep touching the lives of the Filipino people, as it is the responsibility of a social worker in the community she is serving,” she said.
