DSWD joined the Solidarity Walk in Tuguegarao City on Friday as the kick-off activity to mark the 18-day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (VAW).

This year’s kick-off event was spearheaded by the Zonta Club of Central Tuguegarao and was participated by various regional line agencies, private and civil society organizations.

Among the highlights of the activity was the releasing of balloons to symbolize the participants’ commitment to ensure a VAW-free community.
