The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) extends its gratitude to the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) for recognizing the agency’s efforts to assist vulnerable sectors, particularly women, during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement released by the CHR through their spokesperson, Atty. Jacqueline Ann de Guia, the Commission lauded DSWD for the continuous provision of livelihood support to women through the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP).
SLP is one of the capacity building programs of the Department that provides opportunities that increase the productivity of the livelihood assets of the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized communities, helping them improve their socio-economic well-being.
Amid the pandemic, the Department commits to continue to ensure unhampered provision of social protection programs to mitigate the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and community quarantine measures.
