Government through DSWD opens Marawi operations center

“This shall serve as the nerve center for our operations in Marawi to make sure that the initiatives of the Department will match the requirements of the internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the area,” Leyco announced in the Bangon Marawi press briefing in Malacañang.

The DSWD, in particular, will focus on the recovery and re-establishment of human infrastructure in the affected communities in Marawi.

The Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC), on the other hand, will take care of the security and physical infrastructure.

Leyco also announced that the DSWD has prepared a “portfolio of programs” in Marawi. Among them is the suspension of conditionalities for the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), or the government’s conditional cash transfer, until March 2018.

“We have suspended the conditionalities that will allow them to receive even if they are not attending schools or not going to health clinics, or not even attending the family development sessions,” he said.

The other DSWD programs in Marawi were modified sustainable livelihood, social pension, supplementary feeding, and assistance to individuals in crisis programs. (PCOO)
