In accordance with Presidential Decree No. 1563 or the Mendicancy Law of 1978, the Local Government of San Fernando, through its City Social Welfare and Development Office, recently conducted a rescue operation of street children and street families around Poblacion area in this city.

Social Welfare Officer II Bernadette Maniago said they were able to rescue more than 30 street children found begging on the streets.

Most street children are residents of Barangays Sta. Lucia, San Pedro Cutud, San Nicolas, Quebiawan,Calulut, Malpitic and Sto. Nino.

The CSWD on Monday has conducted a Parent Effectiveness Seminar attended by Health Workers, Nutrition Scholars, Purok Leaders and parents from the said barangays which aims to promote awareness on the control and eradication of mendicancy.

Mayor Edwin ‘EdSa’ Santiago said the activity also seeks to promote the importance of parent involvement in their children’s lives. Thus, strengthening a parent-child relationship in a family.

“Gusto nating isulong ang responsible parenthood para mabawasan ang kaso ng pamamalimos at child abuse sa ating syudad.”

Meanwhile, rescued mendicants are immediately brought to the Women’s Crisis Center in Barangay Sindalan for legal assessment and evaluation.

The city government was recently named by the Department of Interior and Local Government and Department of Social Welfare and Development as a Child-Friendly Local Government Unit for promoting programs aimed to uplift the living conditions of youth.
