Bangued LGU vows to end child trafficking

by Maritess Benas

Bangued, Abra (24 October) -- The Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office of Bangued is convening a conference to raise the awareness of its partners in the protection of trafficked children.

Myrna Ruth Borgonia, MSWDO and area convenor for the Philippines Against Child Trafficking (PACT) in the province said the conference is called for as it is vital for the partners to know the Philippine Guidelines for the Protection of Trafficked Children to be able to effectively carry out their role and in the management of cases.

The conference also aims to strengthen the system of referral, coordination and cooperation among the child service providers.

The PACT is a national network for multi-sectoral advocates committed to end child trafficking. It is committed to coordinate the efforts of all its partners in the prevention, protection, prosecution and reintegration of child trafficking victims and survivors all over the country.

PACT's network of child rights advocates is composed of local government officials, government agencies, non-government organizations, people's organizations, faith-based organizations, law enforcers, teachers, social workers, community leaders and media.

It has been noted that since Bangued is the provincial capital and the melting pot of all social and economic activities in the province, it is here where cases of child trafficking have been observed although still negligible.

However, Mayor Dominic Valera is determined to take preemptive measures in the possible commission of such criminal acts to protect the children in the communities. (PIA-Abra) [top]
