According to the Department of Social
Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary, Dinky Soliman, citizens can
take part by indicating the location or name of the street, time when
they found the homeless child together with other relevant details
such as nearby landmarks and tagging it to DSWD’s designated
Twitter account @savestreetkids
Information submitted to the DSWD will
then be relayed to the agency’s “reach-out team” for immediate
action. In addition, the agency will also be updating the status of
each reported incident by indicating the location of the “reception
action centre” where the homeless child is temporarily sheltered.
The Department of Social Welfare and
Development is seeking to engage the public, via the popular
microblogging site called Twitter, to help save the lives of homeless
children in the streets of Metro Manila.
