DSWD, LGUs to provide aid to quarantined families in Luzon
by DSWD release

The Department of Social Welfare and Development, in coordination with local government units, is set to provide family food packs and non-food items to families and individuals during the implementation of the community quarantine in Luzon due to the threat of the coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19).

This is part of the DSWD’s Technical Assistance and Resource Augmentation mandate to assist LGUs as they address the food and other basic requirements of their constituents in times of emergencies.

DSWD’s field offices are now coordinating with LGUs in identifying target beneficiaries, distribution points, and strategies to be undertaken to ensure the smooth distribution of goods.

DSWD will also partner with the Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines for the hauling and delivery of the food packs and non-food items such as hygiene kits to LGUs. 

The DSWD central office has P1.3 billion Quick Response Fund, which the Department of Budget and Management can replenish once exhausted, to sustain the provision of food and other essential supplies to various communities.

Aside from food and non-food supplies, DSWD is now finalizing its guidelines for the provision of social amelioration services that would further benefit families and individuals affected by this health crisis.

The DWSD emphasized that it will continue to provide the delivery of maagap at mapagkalingang serbisyo to the poor, vulnerable, and disadvantaged, while putting premium to the health and safety of its beneficiaries and personnel in this time of public health emergency.
