The officials of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) gave their continuous support and commitment for efficient implementation of various social-related programs and projects for the province of Lanao del Norte particularly the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4P’s) under the current administration.
 
The commitment was aired by the newly assigned 4P’s Provincial Link Ms. Kendi Lovellen Villarin during her visit at the office of the Provincial Governor accompanied by PSWDO Annabele Mendez, SWO III Hiyasmin Cabrera, Provincial Grievance Officer Fatima Lyka Eppie, Felsone Gazelle Francisco, Jan Rickrein Solivio and Florylove Patromo.
 
The meeting paved the way to discuss the issues, concerns, and future programs of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in giving effective service to the people of Lanao Del Norte. Governor Angging extends her gratitude and encourage everyone especially the newly assigned officers to continue the intensifying efforts of the DSWD and the Provincial Government of Lanao Del Norte in assisting the needs of the people especially that we’re still in the midst of health crisis.
 
“We have to widen our scope and be stricter in validating the beneficiaries under 4P’s because there are still a lot of people that need help and assistance. Let us also encourage them to be wiser in spending their money or cash assistance. The alteration of their lives greatly relies on their hands, but as paid government officials, we need to be more proactive in extending our hands to them. Let us help our President Duterte in his dedication in promoting wellness especially during this pandemic,” Governor Angging said.
 
Furthermore, Congressman Abdullah emphasized the true value and purpose of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.
“The main goal of the 4P’s is to alleviate the lives of the people especially those who are less fortunate. There should be a proper guideline in validating the beneficiaries to make it more effective. In line with that, we should all be united, from the barangay to the provincial government. If there is unity, we can definitely attain the real purpose that we are all aiming for, and those are progress and peace”, Congressman Abdullah said.
 
The newly assigned officials were so grateful for the heartwarming welcome of Governor Angging and Congressman Abdullah, hence, they promised to do their very best for the development of all people in this province. Governor Angging also assures them that she will continuously support and assist every program on finding ways to help the people of Lanao Del Norte. PIO-LDN
