Volunteers needed desperately!

Posted by Marie on Friday, October 23, 2009 in , ,
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is in dire need of volunteers assistance in repacking relief goods at the DSWD National Relief Operations Center.

I knew about this a week ago when they sent a memo to our office asking for help - I just didn't realized how badly until a friend posted a blog in Facebook, reporting that the relief goods in their warehouse are spoiling.

They also need volunteer counselors who are capable of conducting trauma counseling to the typhoon victims.

The DSWD have an online volunteer registry if want read more information on volunteering with them. Here's the contact info from their homepage:

"If you are interested to render volunteer work to do repacking of good and/or provide stress debriefing session, please click here and register online, or call DSWD - SWIDB at telephone number (02) 951-28-05. You may also call or text Dir. Ma. Suzette M. Agcaoili at 0928-505-9108 / 0928-479-3523 or Mr. Tony Binalla at 0921-219-3646."

You really don't need to register first before volunteering. You can just call them up to get your schedule and which DSWD location you'll be assigned and that's it. You can also call Ms. Nolee Macabagdal at 951-2805 and 931-8101 loc 405.



hey, i signed up for this (through Unicef) a week ago, i have filled all the forms they sent me via email, but they havent emailed me back for the confirmation. im supposed to go at the DSWD warehouse this afternoon. But I dont wanna barge in there without any confirmation, because thay said they only need 50 volunteers at a time...

Same thing with me. I filled up the forms three weeks ago - and received their notification email just yesterday. It seems they don't give that much attention to their online website. Better call to confirm instead, and I suggest to call them twice (plus, get the name of the person who received your call). And thank you for volunteering! :)
