Angeles City to establish women and children’s desk in every barangay

April 1, 2011

ANGELES CITY, Pampanga, March 30 – In a bid to address the problem of domestic violence, the city government is set to establish women and children’s desks in the city’s 33 barangays.


This is in cognizance of the rules and regulations implementing Republic Act (RA) 9710, otherwise known as the Magna Carta of Women.


In compliance with this law, a joint memorandum circular no. 2010-2 was issued by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Department of Education (DepED), Department of Health (DOH) and the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW).


It required all local government units (LGUs) to establish a violence against women and children’s (VAWC) desk in every barangay.


Vice Mayor Vicky Vega Cabigting said that there are cases of violence against women and children that are not being addressed and given proper attention due to lack of information on the part of the victims or lack of immediate personnel to guide them.


“The establishment of women and children’s desk in every barangay is an intervention that would raise the consciousness of the general public in recognizing the dignity of women and the protection of children,” Cabigting said.


For his part, Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan said that the VAWC desk in every barangay will greatly help abused women and children in the city.


“This sends out a strong message that rape, domestic violence, trafficking and other violence against women is totally unacceptable,” Pamintuan said.


“We believe that barangay officials in the grassroots level have a role to play in ensuring support for victims, bringing perpetrators to justice and beginning the long-term task of preventing violence before it begins.” Pamintuan said.

The city government distributed P5,000 to each barangay that will be used as an initial funding in the establishment of their respective VAWC desk. (PNA)
