QUEZON CITY — The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) encourages the public to continue to follow health and safety protocols in accordance with the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and local government units (LGUs) decision to allow minors and adults to go Christmas caroling.

The DSWD also emphasized that children should be supervised by their parents or guardians while caroling to ensure that they follow the minimum health and safety protocols or guidelines established by authorities in accordance with their locality's alert level status.

To ensure that children have a safe Christmas, the Department encourages the public to organize gift-giving activities or medical missions at activity centers in collaboration with LGUs and other appropriate authorities to ensure compliance with minimum safety protocols. The general public may also donate to DSWD centers and other organizations that assist street children, as well as hold charity drives.

The DSWD would also like to encourage LGUs to include in their policies that caroling should take place only in safe areas within their barangays or communities, rather than along roads and major thoroughfares. (DSWD/PRESS RELEASE)
