Newbie composer wins Duyog sa Paghigugma songwriting tilt

The poignant yet hopeful song “Paglaom sa Pag-ampon,” composed by first time song writer Regil Alby Gador from Mandaue City bagged the first place in the “Duyog sa Paghigugma” songwriting competition conducted by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office VII.

Regil Alby Gador (right) with guitarist Gabriel Bernil interprets the song “Paglaom sa Pag-ampon” during the culmination of the Adoption Consciousness celebration at the Activity Center of SM City Cebu.

The song which was interpreted by Regil and accompanied by guitarist Gabriel Bernil at the culminating activity of the Adoption Consciousness celebration held in the Activity Center of SM City Cebu on March 4, 2019, emerged as the winner among the 6 entries and won the Php 10,000.00 cash prize.

Regil said that it was her first time to join a song writing competition. “I praise Jesus for enabling me to compose and perform the song and I am also thankful to my family and friends for their moral support,” shared Regil.

“Through the bible verse Psalm 27:10 which states ‘Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me’, I was able to write the lyrics of the song Paglaom sa Pag-ampon,” explained Regil.

“Based on that bible verse, I was able to put myself in the shoes of those kids who were abandoned and neglected and despite that they were not able to feel the love of their parents, the Lord still loves them and eventually they will be given to a new family who will adopt them,” said the 22-year old active member in the music ministry of the Jesus Christ the Healer Christian Fellowship.

Regil shared that winning the songwriting competition is not her main goal but the message of the song which can help in the advocacy of legal adoption.

This year’s theme is “Pagmamahal Palaganapin, Legal na Pag-aampon Ating Gawin! (Spread Unconditional Love through Legal Adoption),” which reiterates the call to ensure that orphaned, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered children are provided with the secure, permanent and loving homes which they deserve. ###

Dancing to the rhythm of life

Hip-hop, R&B and K-POP those are just few of the music genres that a simple girl named Abbie expresses her feelings toward her friends, neighbors and loved ones.

The rhythm of the music symbolizes the different high and low points in her life and the way she dances to the different music signifies her flexibility to adapt with the different situations in life.

For Abbie Sumagang, dancing is her way of coping from stress and pressure which a typical teenager faces nowadays. She also does this as a medium of promoting an active lifestyle and camaraderie among the youth may it be in school or in her neighborhood. Abbie said “I dance often not only to develop my talent and be known for it but through dance I gained new friends.”

Abbie is currently a grade 8 student at Campalanas National High School.

Para nako ang pagsayaw kay usa ka paagi aron ma-express imong self (For me dance is one way of expressing one’s self),” Abbie said in mixed English and dialect.

Ever since she was young, Abbie participated in many school activities and even performed during their town fiesta celebrations.

According to her, she likes to join to a lot of academic and extracurricular activities in school and in the community because it enhances her inter-personal skills.

Abbie is the youngest among the four children of Abner and Helen Sumagang from Sitio Balogo, Barangay Campalanas, Lazi, Siquijor.

Abbie’s residence is the end sitio of their barangay, about 18 kilometers from the town hall. She recalls that every day she walks the rough hills road with her schoolmates from their house to her school that is why she wakes up early in the morning and helps her parents prepare her things.

Abbie finished elementary as the Class Valedictorian and she continues to be on top of her class even up to this day.

Athlete and Volunteer

Aside from her academic achievements, Abbie has also put a name for herself in sports during intramurals as she was among the school’s representatives in the chess competition during the District Level Competition.

An active member of the Girl Scout of the Philippines (GSP), Abbie wants to become an accountant someday. “I want to become an accountant, because it deals more on mathematics, which I love especially problem solving. I always love helping my classmates on problem solving,” explains Abbie.

She has been very helpful to her classmates and is not selfish to share her knowledge in Mathematics and Science. In fact, she has won various awards in the Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines (MTAP) Math challenge both in the district and division levels.

She has been an active volunteer in their barangay and participated in some community activities such as clean-up drive and tree planting.

One of her major extra-curricular involvements is in the Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council. She shares that her involvement motivated her to assist in times of emergency situations. Abbie tells that her place is identified to be a hazard prone area. Furthermore, she said the council is the prime mover in times of school disaster drills, accidents during intramurals and in the information campaign on disaster preparedness at school.

Abbie says “Ang kapobrehon dili kini pagalantawon isip usa ka babag sa pagkab-ot sa mga pangandoy apan usa kini kahagit sa atong kinabuhi (Poverty should be viewed not as a hindrance in achieving one’s goal but rather as a challenge in life).”

She never falters to strive to achieve her dreams because she considers every difficult circumstance as a challenge to herself rather than a reason to surrender.

Family

She is grateful for her family that despite of their simple living, they have maintained a healthy relationship. She recalls her parent’s conviction that “bisan makaagi mi og kalisud, problema ug mga pagsulay ang panaghiusa isip usa ka pamilya gayud ang matigbabaw (Despite the hardships, problems and challenges, solidarity among the family members should rise above all).”

Vina, Abbie’s elder sister, expresses that she considered Abbie an achiever. “We are proud of her because not only she achieves her aspiration as a student, she also performs her household chores well.” Vina added that Abbie never forgets to do her household chores before and after school.

As a form of family bonding, the Sumagang family maintains a small backyard garden at home that also serves as their source of food supply and income. They family helps their neighbors by sharing them vegetables and corn cobs every time they harvest.

Abner, Abbie’s father, is a carpenter and at times, works at their farm for additional income. Her Mother Helen, who hails from Pampanga, is a simple housewife and maintains the family backyard garden.

The couple often wondered how they were able to send all their children to school given their limited income. Before Abner went to carpentry, he used to be a fisherman and they struggled a lot financially before they became a Pantawid Pamilya partner-beneficiary.

Lisud ang trabaho sa usa ka mananagat kay kung bati ang panahon o adunay bagyo dili makapangisda si Papa (A fisherman’s work is difficult because if the weather is bad and if there is a typhoon, my father cannot work),” Abbie recounts.

When Helen decided to work in Manila as a housekeeper in one of her relatives in order to sustain the needs of the family, Abner had to assume both roles as a father and mother.

Abbie exclaimed “Si Papa ang nibuhat sa mga trabahuon nga gitrabaho pud ni Mama sama sa pagluto, paglaba ug uban pa (My father had to do the household chores as my mother did like cooking, washing laundry among others).”

However, the family did not lose hope and continued to strive for the betterment of their family coupled by prayers.

When they become Pantawid Pamilya partner-beneficiary, Helen came home to take care of their children and on the other hand Abner was also able to find a better job that would augment their family needs.

Abbie Sumagang (leftmost) together with other Exemplary Pantawid Pamilya Children from Central Visayas Ma. Janica Delusa, Jhefrell Casido and Dylene Jee Polea during the 2018 Araw ng Kabataan at the SM North EDSA Skydome.

It was shared by Helen that the program did not only help them financially but it has also strengthened their family relationship with the aid of the Family Development Session (FDS) where they learned to be more responsible and mature in handling their children and family as a whole. They are now aware of the different internal and external resources in the community giving them easier access in finding better solutions to address the needs of their family.

At a very a young age, through the guidance of her parents, Abbie was able to balance her personal, family and social life in school, church and community. She hopes that one day, all the children in their community will be able to finish their education and reach their dreams in life.

She continues to inspire other people to help others in the simplest way they can. She and her family upholds to the mantra “Kapag may itinanim may aanihin (What you sow, so shall you reap).”

With this, she created her own meaning of the acronym 4Ps. One has to have Patience, Persistence coupled with Passion in everything he/she does to achieve Perfection.

Life is full of happiness and tears. And for Abbie, whatever comes her way, she just have accept it, be strong and have faith.

There are many kinds of music out there and so are life’s surprises, but with her values, experiences, and with the people who love and support her, Abbie believes that she can dance to the rhythm of life. ###

DSWD-7 reminds 4Ps: Be vigilant and active this election

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office VII reminds Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program or 4Ps partner-beneficiaries to be vigilant and be active citizens as the mid-term election activities begin.

“Our program partner-beneficiaries are free to decide, choose and express their beliefs and rights on issues concerning their lives,” said OIC DSWD Regional Director Rebecca P. Geamala.

“They are encouraged to exercise their right to vote and protect its secrecy and sanctity as the future of the community and the nation depends on this,” added Geamala.

Director Geamala further said that 4Ps beneficiaries are empowered individuals and are aware of their rights as citizens and they are free to choose someone whom they believe epitomizes their principles.

Pantawid Pamilya continues to implement its election-related campaign which aims to promote and strengthen active citizenry. Beneficiaries’ empowerment are further fortified through the monthly Family Development Session (FDS) with the good governance and active citizenship module and information campaign on election related matters.

“We would also like to clarify that DSWD programs and services are not directly or indirectly coursed through local officials or their offices,” said Geamala.

She appeals to everyone to refrain from spreading false information that they can, for instance, remove or de-list from the 4Ps or from any other DSWD programs and services if one would not vote for them,” Geamala said.

“Again, it is only the DSWD that can recommend additional beneficiaries to the program based on the Listahanan database and as of now we do not have expansion of the program. There is no additional 4Ps beneficiaries since the moratorium issued in 2016 has not been lifted yet. And a 4Ps household can only be removed from the program if it does not comply with the program conditions or does not have children eligible for monitoring,” she added.

Moreover, DSWD personnel like the City and Municipal Links who are covered by the Civil Service rules are not allowed to campaign or influence 4Ps beneficiaries who they should vote or support during the election.

DSWD Secretary Rolando Joselito Bautista also instructed for the conduct of payouts and other DSWD activities in neutral grounds and venue to avoid political campaigning during the DSWD activities in partnership with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (PNP), Philippine National Police (PNP) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).

The 4P’s is a program of the national government that invests in the health and education of poor households primarily of children aged 18 and below. It provides cash grants to compliant household beneficiaries with health grant worth Php 500 and educational grants worth Php 300 and Php 500.00 each to the children studying in elementary and high school, respectively. The beneficiaries also receive a rice subsidy in the form of cash amounting to Php 600.00. ###

DSWD-7 chorale serenades CIS clients

As the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) celebrates its 68th founding anniversary, the DSWD-7 Chorale had valentine serenade to the clients of the department’s Crisis Intervention Section (CIS) on February 13, 2019.

Just in time for the love month celebration, the DSWD-7 Chorale has rendered love songs to the CIS clients waiting for their turn to complete the process of their request for Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situations (AICS).

The DSWD-7 chorale amuses CIS clients with their rendition of the love songs entitled How Deep is Your Love?, Panalangin, You, Killing Me Softly, and You are the Reason.

Under the AICS, the DSWD provides medical, educational, burial, transportation as well as non-food assistance to persons or families in crisis situations, particularly those who belong to the sector and other poor, marginalized, vulnerable, and disadvantaged individuals.

Maria Nancy Bondoc, 62, of Brgy. Tinago, Cebu City who has sung along with the DSWD-7 chorale expressed her amusement of such effort of the staff. “Nawala jud akong stress nga naminaw sa ilaha ganina nga nanganta (My stress has disappeared while listening to the songs they sing),” said Maria Nancy who was processing a medical assistance for her daughter.

Mr. Proceso A. Bomediano, Pantawid Provincial Grievance Officer and one of the members of the Chorale has also voiced how fulfilling it was for them to have gone an extra mile for the CIS clients through such serenade. “It really feels good to at least put a smile on their face and for that span of time that they have stayed there processing their documents, we have shared something more than the cash grants they would receive,” Mr. Bomediano recounted.

This serenade to CIS clients is just one of the lined-up activities of the field office for its week-long celebration of the DSWD 68th Founding Anniversary with the theme: “Katuwang sa Pagbabago”. Among the activities for the week-long anniversary celebration are the meeting with the Secretary, Ribbon Cutting of SLP and AVRC II exhibit, Blessing and Dedication of the Center for Women and Children, Awarding of Outstanding Employees, NGOs, media and partner stakeholders/institutions, Employees Welfare Program Symposium, Blood Letting Program, Holy Mass and the AnniverSaya Afternoon featuring assorted amusement booths. ###

FO7 celebrates DSWD’s 68th founding anniversary

The Field Office VII celebrated the 68th founding anniversary of the Department of Social Welfare and Development with Secretary Rolando Joselito D. Bautista during the kick-off activity of the week-long celebration

Several activities highlighted the first day of the celebration.

Secretary Bautista met the Regional Management Development Committee (RMDC) where DSWD-7 presents its 2018 accomplishments and plans for 2019. Likewise, he reiterated the directive of the president to keep DSWD activities from politicians.

DSWD Secretary Rolando Joselito D. Bautista delivers his Keynote message during the PANATA and PRAISE awards in FO7’s celebration of the DSWD’s 68th anniversary.

With this years’ theme “Katuwang sa pagbabago” or (Partners for Change), Secretary Bautista encouraged the cooperation of each staff toward success and admit that he cannot do it alone. “Sama-sama tayo!” said Sec. Bautista to the staff.

Another activity he attended was the opening of the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) Bazaar together with OIC-Regional Director Rebecca Geamala, Assistant Regional Director for Operations Shalaine Marie Lucero and Assistant Regional Director for Administration Grace Subong. Secretary Bautista led the Ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The SLP Bazaar displayed products made by the beneficiaries as well as the handicrafts created by the inmates of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP), as a way of helping them promote their products and gain income.

Furthermore, he also graced the blessing and dedication of the newly renovated Center for Women and Children.

This center was previously known as HerSPACE or Her to refer as Women/Girls and SPACE is the abbreviation for Service Providers Assessment Center. It is a temporary shelter for women and children who are rescued from human traffickers before transferring them to other centers. The name was change to Center for Women and Children since it is presently accepting rescued male children as well.

Former DSWD-7 Regional Director Ma. Evelyn B. Macapobre shared the difficulties that the DSWD experienced of having no care center to house the rescued persons. Most of them did not see it as a rescue but a stop of their economic endeavor. Hence, they became resentful and did dangerous things like burning the mattress at the center and threatening the staff with a kitchen knife.

“I could still remember that with the help of IJM we were able to survive in handling these victims of prostitution with nothing at all,” said Macapobre.

John Tanagho, Cebu field office director of International Justice Mission (IJM) expressed his gratitude for the opportunity of being able to serve and help the children who are victims of exploitation.

“It’s really a privilege and a blessing for us as an NGO to work with the law enforcer and those with the authority to rescue,” said Mr. Tanagho.

In his message, Secretary Bautista encouraged the parents to know online media education in order to protect their children from online sexual exploitation.

Secretary Bautista thanked the partners especially the IJM for its continued support. He said, “together we can fight exploitation.”

Another highlights of the anniversary celebration were the PANATA and PRAISE awards ceremony with Secretary Bautista as Keynote Speaker.
