DSWD denies hauling of homeless families, points to Manila LGU

2015_1119_SWCorazonSoliman2

smileredunhappySocial Welfare Secretary Corazon Soliman said that the transfer of homeless families from Manila to the Boystown in Marikina City was solely an initiative of the local government of Manila.

The DSWD statement was in reaction to allegations that Manila street dwellers were removed in time for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meeting from November 18 to 19.

Soliman said that DSWD-National Capital Region will coordinate with the City Social Welfare and Development Office of Manila to look into the situation of the families at the center.

She assured that both the local and national governments have no intention to detain the street dwellers, but to provide them services to ensure that they will not return to the streets.

“If the families who were taken to the Boystown want to leave the center, then we will help the LGU reintegrate these families into their communities by giving them appropriate services.”
