A total of 14 television sets will be purchased by the department worth P200,000 which will be distributed to DSWD office and DSWD 9 centers in Region 9.

Recipients of the television sets are: Reception and Study Center for Children located in Barangay Talon Talon, Area Vocational and Rehabilitation Center in Barangay Mampang, Home for women in San Roque, Home for elderly Talon- Talon, processing center for displaced persons Mampang, Regional Rehabilitation Center for Youth Zamboanga del Norte, Balay Dangpanan sa Kabataan also in Zamboanga del Norte, Crisis Intervention Unit in Sta.Barbara, five Social Welfare and Development Teams, and regional office.

According to Salvador, these television sets will show DSWD 9 programs in a one to two-minute videos such as social pension, trafficking, supplementary feeding, adoption, center based programs, and others.

"We wanted to establish good understanding among our public, how DSWD is working for the welfare of the clients," Salvador said. (R.G. A A. Go)
