Naga landslide: DSWD-7 encodes entries of internally displaced persons

October 03,2018 - 10:34 PM

THE Department of Social Welfare and Development in Central Visayas (DSWD-7) has started encoding the entries in Disaster Assistance Family Access Card (DAFAC) of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Naga City, Cebu.

The DAFAC plays an important role in monitoring the provision of assistance to the IDPs. It contains basic information on each displaced family, including where they are currently staying at; whether in the evacuation center or at their or relatives’ houses. It also helps keep track of the services extended to the families from the start of the disaster to the Early Recovery Phase.

“Effective data management is important in the delivery of services to the IDPs. Hence, we need to fast track the encoding of the information gathered through the DAFAC,” said DSWD-7 Regional Director Ma. Evelyn Macapobre. She added the encoded entries will be reviewed to come up with a clean master list of all IDPs, which will be the basis for providing further interventions to the IDPs. /pr
