DSWD - CAR Family builds ‘dream home’, finds peace of mind C ordillera Administrative Region- Peace of mind was seldom experienced by George and Sylvina Boto-og of Brgy. Tanulong in Sagada, Mt. Province. The couple, together with their five (5) children are engulfed with fear especially during the rainy season. “Idi 1991, ada iti nagaburan ditoy ayan mi. Idi 2011, nag landslide manen. Isu nga kananayon nu agtudon ket mabuteng kamin (Noong 1991, mayroon natabunan dito. Noong 2011, nag landslide naman. Kaya natatakot na kami tuwing umuulan.)”, Sylvina shared. The family had to deal with this until the family was granted the Core Shelter Assistance provided by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). “Nakaawat kami iti 70 thousand pesos nga nag-gapu iti DSWD. Isu iti inusar mi nga naggatang iti materyles iti balay mi (Nakatanggap kami ng 70 thousand pesos mula sa DSWD. Ito ang ginamit naming para makabili ng mga materyales para sa bahay namin)”, George said. The Core Shelter Assistance is one of the interventions of the DSWD under Disaster Mitigation and Preparedness. It aimsto provide environment-friendly, structurally strong, and decent shelter units to families who are victims of disaster or calamities in relocation sites provided by the national or local government units. Under the Core Shelter Assistance Program, the beneficiaries are given the monetary resource to cover the expenses of the materials while the beneficiaries provide the manpower during the construction. Meanwhile, Boto-og family was able to complete their home in 2013. “Maymayat tatta ta as-asideg kami iti kalsada. Maymayat iti danum ditoy. Sobra-sobra iti danum nga mausar mi. Awanen pay iti buteng mi uray ag-bagyo. (Mas maganda ngayon dahil mas malapit kami sa kalsada. Mas mayos din yung [supply ng] tubig. Maraming tubig na pwede naming gamitin. Hindi na rin kami natatakot kahit bumabagyo)”, Sylvina added. As per guideline, the beneficiaries are provided with a minimum of 60 sq. meter home lot where they can construct their core shelters. The shelter units are required to include the basic parts such as kitchen, bedrooms, and bathroom. However, the family decided to continue improving the core shelter provided by the DSWD. Through the hard work of the couple, they were able to pool additional five thousand pesos (Php 5,000.00) which they used to pay the expenses for the labor and materials of the extension of their home. “Talaga nga impaaramid mi met ti extension [sala] na daytoy balay para iti pamilya mi. Dayta ket pag-ayayaman iti ubbing ket nu adda bisita ket adda pagdagusan da. (Talagang gumawa kami ng extension [sala] ng bahay para sa aming pamilya. Dito pwedeng maglaro ang mga bata at kapag may bisita ay mayroon silang tutuluyan)”, Sylvina said. The family has expressed full acceptance and ownership of the core shelter unit provided to them. “Kayat mi ditoyen. Haan kami nga umalis ta daytoy ket bagi mi, nagrigatan mi. (Gusto namin ditto. Hindi na kami aalis ditto dahil saamin ang bahay na ito, pinaghirapan namin.)”, George emphasized. As of 26 August 2016, there are 884 core shelter units being constructed in the region. Based on the 2015 Guideline on Shelter Assistance, beneficiaries of the core shelter assistance may receive Php 130,000.00. Victims with partially damaged houses may receive a maximum of Php 10,000.00 while victims with totally damaged houses may receive a maximum of Php 30,000.00. Victims who fall below the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) food threshold, residing in high risk areas, and families with small children, lactating or pregnant mother, persons with disability or other special needs and are not receiving any housing assistance are the priority of the DSWD’s Shelter Assistance. Individuals who are interested to avail of the said assistance should report to their respective Local Social Welfare and Development Offices in their municipalities/ cities or may contact the DSWD Field Office Cordillera Administrative Region Disaster Management Focal Arnold Lartec through or (074) 446-59-61. #DSWD-CAR, SOCIAL MARKETING UNIT, Nerizza Faye G.

These developments can be accounted to the concerted effort of our partners and stakeholders” DSWD OIC- Regional Director Janet P. Armas shared. “For the past year, we have accounted some practices of our partners that helped in the implementation of the Program”, SFP Focal Person Eleonor Bugalin said. Among the practices include the conduct of Parent Effectiveness Session initiated by the local government of La Trinidad in Benguet. Day Care parents and guardians are required to attend the Parents Effectiveness Sessions. The sessions focus on topics including children rights, proper childcare, nutrition, and family and child development. Parents and guardians unable to attend the sessions are penalized Php 200. The amount collected is being used to augment in providing the needs of the day care centers. Among these centers is the Camp DSWD - CAR Dangwa Day Care Center located inside the Philippine National Police Office, in La Trinidad, Benguet. Aside from this strategy, Day Care Worker Miriam S. Botongen coordinates with the Philippine National Police Cordillera (PROCOR) and other agencies. As a result, physical fitness activities, and annual medical and dental check-up have been conducted to the Camp Dangwa Day Care children. Other activities involving the children conducted include “Batang Munti, Kalingain, Kalusugan Pagyamanin” Project, tree planting activity which teaches children how to protect and preserved the environment, recycling of waste materials, and Gulayan sa Day Care Center Project. “We would like to commend our partners who give beyond what is expected of them. Their strategies are valuable inputs for our Department to further improve our service delivery. We hope that our partnership with them continue to flourish this year and we are optimistic that these will help our clients for an improved accessibility of our programs and services”, Director Armas shared. # DSWD-CAR, Social Marketing Unit, Nerizza Faye G.
