On September 5, 2022, the Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office NCR (DSWD FO NCR) and the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos NCR (NCMF-NCR) explored their existing partnership to expand the coverage of programs and services offered to Muslim Filipinos.
Through a consultation-dialogue, NCMF NCR Regional Director, Dir. Adzhar Albani, CESO III with DSWD NCR Regional Director, Dir. Monina Josefina H. Romuladez, discussed collaborative programs for Muslim communities who are residing in Metro Manila, especially the centralized system of referral for requests for assistance of Muslim groups and organizations.
Both agencies have a shared commitment to see to it that the needs of Muslim Filipinos in all areas of social welfare and development are provided. Thus, a Memorandum of Agreement or Understanding between DSWD-NCR and NCMF-NCR, among others, will be forged to officially institutionalize the said partnership. ###
