Butuan City-The Department of Social Welfare and Development Caraga inks Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Mindanao Centro Daily (MCD) and the Philippine Electronics and Communication Broadcasting Corporation (PECBC) last February 20, 2015 at Almont Hotel’s Inland Resort, Butuan City during the conduct of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program Knowledge-Deepening Workshop for Media Partners.
The formal ceremony was represented by Minda B. Brigoli, CESO III for the DSWD Caraga, Alex Mapoy as representative of the MCD Publisher Mr. Joseph P. Sy and Engr. Romeo L . Zerrudo, General Manager of PECBC.
“This engagement symbolizes trust between partners. Trust that only the two parties can define. Your [media] service to the people thought us to be more visible and become closer to the public. Help us to carry this out more,” Director Brigoli shared.
“Dahil gusto nating ma-ipadama sa kanila [beneficiaries] that the Department is here to serve them. Through the intervention of the media, we could inspire more people to live their dreams and make those dreams a reality. We can do it more “better” now because of you,” Brigoli acclaimed.
Under the said engagement, both parties are titled to be visible to the needs of one another. The DSWD can assure that media will help them inform the public of the programs and social protection services that the Department offers, on the other hand, partner media can certify that the DSWD will afford them information provided that they acknowledge the DSWD as the source of data.
A total of 52 local media partners witness the signing of the MOU (###DSWDCaragaSocialMarketngUnitRyanMalbasTapayan###).
