In the observance of World Social Work Day 2020, it is proper and fitting to remind all progressive social workers to passionately work “to promote, restore, maintain, and enhance the well-being of individuals, families, social groups, organizations, and communities.” In the process of building and restoring human relationships, let us also nurture these relationships as “infrastructures of dissent”. Together with people, we can again promote collectivity and solidarity. Our experience teaches us that only through collective efforts can personal and structural changes achieve enduring character.
Today is World Social Work Day. We challenge our colleagues in DSWD to search for innovative ways to continue to deliver, NOT suspend basic and mandated social protection measures and to come up with others measures to mitigate the enhanced community quarantine. It is also the time for DSWD to release unpaid cash grants and social pension.
