Angeles City receives P8.4M from DSWD for kids’ supplemental feeding
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Region III has awarded P8.4 million to the city government of Angeles for the supplemental feeding of the children in day care centers.
Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan formally received the amount in behalf of the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) from DWSD Central Luzon Director Gemma Gabuya in a ceremony held Monday, July 16, at the city hall.
The feeding program will benefit 4,700 children and this will be conducted across the 78 day care centers in the city.
It will be held from Mondays to Fridays and will run for 120 days starting this month of July.
According to CSWDO Head Joy Duaso, an average of 50 kids are being looked after in each of the city’s day care centers.
“We have even surpassed the requirement of one center per barangay in order to meet the needs of children in bigger villages,” said Duaso.
Aside from supplemental feedings, day care workers regularly host activities such as play dates, arts and crafts and storytelling, which aid in the mental and social development of the children.
