DSWD officer pushes for 2 care centers-A A +A
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
A SOCIAL welfare and development officer is pushing for the establishment of two care centers -- one for the abused women and children and the other for the indigent dying people in Iloilo City.
Alfredo Villanueva, of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-Iloilo, said although the City is maintaining the Dalayunan Center for children in conflict with the law and juvenile teenagers, there is no center that could be used exclusively for abused women and children.
Villanueva said he is also working on the establishment of another care center for the dying indigent people who have no home or relatives.
He said he hopes Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog will approve the creation of the two centers.
Villanueva was recognized by the City Government as one of the six best City Hall employees during the Mayor’s Ball highlight held on August 25.
