Advisory: DSWD Field Office VI Calls for Everyone to Stay at Home

Foremost, the DSWD FIELD OFFICE VI is one with the entire country in the call for everyone to STAY AT HOME.

With the passage of Executive Orders of Local Government Units, most of which include CURFEW HOURS, we would like to provide the guide in the proper handling of children or minors, as well as street children and dwellers, who are caught violating the curfew.

It is the obligation of the parents, law enforcers and barangay officials to PROTECT THE RIGHTS OF CHILDEN by observing this protocol.

THE BEST THING TO DO NOW IS FOR CHILDREN TO STAY AT HOME AND RESPECT THE CURFEW HOURS.
AVOID BEING INFECTED BY COVID-19. STAY AT HOME.
