OROQUIETA CITY, Misamis Occidental (PIA)–In order to strengthen the partnership between the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-10 and the provincial government of Misamis Occidental, an executive meeting was conducted at the Asenso Misamis Occidental Sports and Cultural Center Capitol Ground, Oroquieta City.
Graced by the provincial governor, vice governor, board members, and officers; respective local chief executives, and city/municipal social welfare and development officers, the first ever DSWD and Misamis Occidental Executives’ Consultative Meeting paved the way in addressing the issues and concerns regarding the programs and services of the department.
Assistant Regional Director for Operations Ronald Ryan R. Cui led the team as they talked about the programs and services of the department on behalf of the DSWD-10 regional director.
During the interactive discussions, news about the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), Sustainable Livelihood Program, KALAHI-CIDSS, and Disaster Response Operations, to name a few, was shared. This helped provincial and local officers figure out what their biggest worries were.
Cui expressed his deepest gratitude to Provincial Gov. Henry S. Oaminal for the invitation and opportunity to create a stronger bond, coordination, and partnership between the province and the DSWD.
He also added that the DSWD is always in sync with the plans of the provincial officers for the betterment of the Misamisnons.
Meanwhile, Oaminal also ended the activity with a reminder that the “Local” and “National” are brothers with the “Government” as their surname, which simply means that there is only one goal for both offices, and that is to ensure a prosperous, peaceful, and happy community for its people.
With the help of the program heads and project officers of DSWD Field Office 10, both sides met in the middle to solve the problems that were brought up. (DSWD-10/PIA-10/Misamis Occidental)
