Mayor Ferdinand Abesamis of Penaranda town in Nueva Ecija welcomed on Saturday acting Secretary Virginia Orogo of the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

According to the local government of Penaranda, Orogo “announced all new programs and benefits of (the) DSWD, (especially) for the Senior Citizens.”

The department said Orogo conducted an ocular visit to the Mega Drug Abuse Treatment and Rehabilitation Center (DATRC) in Nueva Ecija to assess the current situation there and identify strategies to strengthen inter-agency partnership.

“Her primary concern is the welfare of the residents of the said rehabilitation center, especially those who are children in conflict with the law,” the DSWD Region 3 office said.

Joined by DSWD Central Luzon director Gemma Gabuya, Orogo facilitated also the distribution of 300 family food packs in the province and the awarding of social pensions to some 793 program beneficiaries.
