Adoption inquiry desk opens at SM Davao

Davao City (6 February) -- Beginning today, February 6 until February 11, DSWD Davao Region will entertain inquiries on its Adoption Program as it opens an Adoption Inquiry Desk at SM City Davao from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Director Ester Acebedo-Versoza of DSWD said the event is one of the highlights in observance of the National Adoption Consciousness Week slated February 6-13. "Isulong Legal na Pag-aampon, Hindi Simulation," is this year's theme, Acebedo-Versoza said.

An Adoption Forum for prospective adoptive parents and municipal social workers is also set on February 11 at DSWD Conference Hall. Aside from the Legal Adoption Procedure, Republic Act 9523 or An Act Requiring the Certification of the DSWD to Declare a Child Legally Available for Adoption will be discussed.

RA 9523 was approved in March 2009. This new law amends Presidential Decree No. 603, the Child and Youth Welfare Code which entails a long process thus delaying immediate placement of children for adoption.

Acebedo-Versoza said R.A. 9523 mandates DSWD to certify that a child is abandoned through the issuance of a Certification which serves as primary evidence that a child is legally available for adoption. This is the most expeditious proceeding to declare abandoned, neglected or surrendered children legally available for adoption, she explained.

For information on Legal Adoption, interested parties are invited to visit SM City this week or dial 2278746 or 2242643. DSWD Regional Office is located at Ramon Magsaysay Ave. with website: fo11.dswd.gov.ph. (DSWD/carmelacadigalduron) [top]
