Volunteer to DSWD

by Koree S. Monteloyola


Today, nag hahanap na ng mga volunteers ang DSWD, at least nakagawa ng action kaagad. Para sa information kung paano makapag volunteer, visit na lang sa site ng GangBadoy (http://gangbadoy.multiply.com)


[start quote from gangBadoy]

I was so happy.

I immediately replied. My hunch was right, my friend Congresswoman Risa Hontiveros gave my contact number to the Dept of Social Welfare and Development Secretary. I told Risa if 'the lack of volunteers' is the reason why DSWD has not sent out the relief goods then she should call me.  I know  many private citizens who are willing to help out. And voila, she did.

Many are willing to pack and sort and look for options for delivery (as groups like WhiteSpace, TulongBayan, BalayExpo, Angel Brigade, LSGH, AdMU, Red Cross have been doing since typhoon Ondoy).   Since the warehouses of DSWD are filling up with donations from overseas- then it is time they be delivered to the survivors.  Families who are recovering and desperately rebuilding their lives from the recent onslaught brought about by the two typhoons.

Sec. Cabral and I talked and she mentioned that the DSWD is open 24 hours for workshifts so she agreed for us (private citizens via our NGO: Rock Ed Philippines) to try to come up with a shift-coordination-list of, at least, 50 volunteers per day - for Monday to Friday - 3pm-11pm.
