DSWD humbled by 78% approval rating

The Department of Social Welfare and Development, gladly accepted the result of the latest Pulse Asia Ulat ng Bayan Nationwide Survey indicating the highest approval rating of 78 percent on the government’s response to the needs of calamity-hit areas.

The nationwide survey on Important national concerns and performance rating of the national administration was conducted from 17 to 21 September, using face-to-face interviews with all member agencies.

It was based on the response of 1,200 participants 18 years old and above.

The department attributed the high approval rating to the consistent on-the-ground coordination of local government units, which are the first responders, and national government agencies in responding to disasters.

In addition, in coordination, with the LGUs and other member agencies of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, the DSWD strategically prepositioned food and non-food items in typhoon and flood-prone areas to ensure that there are sufficient relief resources before a disaster strikes.
