1st FWC Federation created in CV


Cebu City,Philippines. Representatives from several industries are at full throttle for the launching of the Regional Family Welfare Committee Federation, the first one created in Central Visayas. 

Composed of representatives from labor, management, plant-level clinics, the Region’s FWC Federation officers are set to take oath next month, said Regional Labor and Employment Director Cyril L. Ticao Wednesday. 

He said that the coming together of the DOLE’s social partners last month was productive, adding that the activity paved the way for the successful creation of the FWC Federation as well as the election of its set of officers and the crafting of its constitution and bylaws (CBL). 

“We’re thankful to everyone for taking active part in the activity. Their cooperation was instrumental in the ratification of the CBL,” said Ticao, who also congratulated and thanked the officers for welcoming an added responsibility. 

Central Visayas’ FWC Federation officers included the following, namely:


  • President- Ms. Gladys Santos of Knowles Electronics Philippines; 
  • Vice-President- Mr. Gerard Paul Sentillas of Primary Group of Builders; 
  • Secretary- JoahnaNacar  of Apo Cement Corporation; 
  • Treasurer- Ms. Helen Binangbang of Alturas Group of Companies; 
  • Auditor- Ms. Angel Nobleza of Virginia Foods, Incorporated; 
  • PIO Internal- Ms. Mina Loterte of Sports Royal; and 
  • PIO External- Mr. Jude Fuertes of Atlas Fertilizer.



The successful creation of the Region’s FWC Federation, according to Director Ticao, is another manifestation of the vibrant and sound relations that exist among the industries in the Central Visayas. 

The Family Welfare program’s thrust, according to him, has now shifted its focus from just promoting family planning to providing family welfare services to workers. 

The ten (10) dimensions of the program which will serve as guide to both labor and management in the implementation of programs and projects consist of the following: (a) Reproductive Health and Responsible Parenthood; (b) Education/Gender Equality; (c) Spirituality or Values Formation; (d) Income Generation/Livelihood/Cooperative; (e) Medical Health Care; (f) Nutrition; (g) Environmental Protection, Hygiene and Sanitation; (h) Sports and Leisure; (i) Housing; and (j) Transportation.
