DSWD assists employees hit by Odette


Amid its continuous disaster response operations, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) also supports its employees and their families affected by the onslaught of Typhoon Odette.

Secretary Rolando Joselito Bautista issued a memorandum on December 27, directing the provision of financial support and material assistance to affected personnel through the Assistance to Individual in Crisis Situation (AICS). This is in consonance with the DSWD Administrative Order No. 20, series of 2018 or the Enhanced Mechanism on Promoting Occupational Wellbeing and Employee Reinvigoration (EMPOWER).

In consideration of the DSWD personnel, the Crisis Intervention Sections of the DSWD Field Offices, and Social Welfare Assistance Desks, will facilitate the provision of assistance to the employees, based on the assessment of the concerned social worker and following the existing guidelines of AICS.

Furthermore, the DSWD-Disaster Response Management Group and its Field Office counterparts are providing food and non-food items to the affected personnel, as part of the responsive alternative support or workplace interventions of the Department.

The DSWD commits to support the welfare of its employees while continuing its relief operations to disaster areas.
