Knowing the value and aid of an enlightened private media in their various anti-poverty programs, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Corazon "Dinky" Juliano-Soliman has feted and expressed her appreciation to the working press.
The private media groups were each given an "Gawad Ulat Award" by the DSWD during the agency's 61st founding anniversary celebration.
They were Kelly Vergel De Dios, assistant vice-president for Administration and Ms. Ma. Teresa L. Pacis, assistant vice-president for Corporate Affairs of GMA7, Most Supportive Television Station; Aida Sy and Allan Lopez of Aksyon Radyo Singko 92.3 News FM for Most Supportive Radio Station; Rene Bas, Editor –In-Chief and Arnel Caguingin, Marketing Executive of the Manila Times for Most Supportive Newspaper.
The "Gawad Ulat Awards" is given to media organizations and practitioners who are committed to advance the advocacy, promotion and publicity of DSWD’s programs, projects and services.
“Media is DSWD’s partner in rendering service to the poor and disadvantaged. They are not all praises to us but they help us attain our goals with truthfulness, honesty and integrity,” Soliman said.
The "Gawad Ulat Awards" is part of the "PANATA ko sa Bayan or Pagkilala sa Natatanging Kontribusyon sa Bayan Awards" given by the DSWD in recognition of the invaluable support of its partners and stakeholders in the implementation of agency's programs, projects and services.
The "PANATA Awards" highlighted the month-long celebration of DSWD’s 61st anniversary with the theme, “DSWD @61: Tuloy-tuloy sa Kaunlaran.”
