    0

    Alarmed by the mushrooming of street dwellers in some parts of Metro Manila, concerned government agencies have vowed to intensify campaign to move them away from thoroughfares. The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has teamed up with the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) to rescue homeless people from the stretch of Roxas Boulevard to make the area vagrant-free. MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said that a satellite office would be set up at the ground floor of “Gwapotel 1” in Bonifacio Drive, Port Area, Manila where the street families, street children and other homeless adults who will be rescued from Roxas Boulevard will be sheltered temporarily. The DSWD personnel will also man the satellite office.
