Gitib Inc, Children, Youth Organization and SK Council in partnership with Barangay Council (village council) implemented “Proteksyon Sukaranan sa Paglaum (PSP) para sa Bata Program” (Protection as a measure of hope for children program) among children below 18 years old. This is a children and youth led response to COVID-19 crisis in six villages: Guimad, Pulot, Labo and Calabayan Of Ozamiz City; Pan-ay and Masabud of Clarin.
Through this program, 4,248 children were provided with food and hygiene materials (face mask and soap) for protection against infection. The children and youth organizations also monitored and documented child protection cases to report to their respective Barangay Council for the Protection of Children (BCPC) and to Gitib for immediate response to keep the children safe at all times and especially during this pandemic.
