Response to your request

We shall partially grant your request and we shall refer your request with respect to this matter to the proper DSWD office. DSWD has limited information of indigent and abandoned elderly staying in residential care facilities run by DSWD.

Hence, you may wish to direct your request to the PSA by submitting a request to the PSA via this portal. You may also contact the PSA by telephone at 462-6600 locals 839, 833 and 834 or via email at info@psa.gov.ph.
