DSWD launches Adoption Consciousness Week

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) recently launched the observance of Adoption Consciousness Week by setting-up Help Desks in selected SM and Ayala Malls to provide information on adoption for interested individuals and families.
The Help Desks are manned by social workers from DSWD Central Office, Field Offices IV-A, IV-B, and National Capital Region, as well as accredited child-placing agencies, such as Norfil Foundation Inc. and Kaisahang Buhay Foundation (KBF).

 Information about adoption including the processes, requirements, and its benefits and effects are discussed here.

Prospective adoptive couples may visit the following malls on February 15, 16, 22, and 23: SM City Manila, SM City Fairview, SM City Marikina, SM City Southmall, SM Megamall, Market Market Mall, Glorietta, and Greenbelt.

With this year’s theme, “Legal na Pag-aampon sa Lahat ng Pagkakataon,” the awareness week aims to highlight the importance of adhering to the legal adoption process in every situation, including during disasters.
