Surigao City: Caraga’s child-friendly city for 2008

The City of Surigao was pronounced, once again, as a regional winner in the Search for the Presidential Awards for Child-Friendly City 2008, after having rendered exceptional services to advance the interests of the children. This was disclosed by the search’s regional awards committee to Mayor Alfonso S. Casurra on Tuesday last week (September 23).

The city’s entry was submitted directly to the Regional Sub-Committee for the Welfare of Children (RSCWC) in Butuan City. The RSCWC evaluated and validated the entry, and monitored the various programs and activities implemented by the city government in the advancement of its end goal of attaining total development of its people, particularly the children.

The formal awarding of prizes will be held in Cagayan de Oro City but the final date is yet to be scheduled as of press time. (Karen T. Acero)
