Partner barangays of the Humanitarian Legal Assistance Foundation, Inc. (HLAF) from Quezon City, Malabon and Navotas established their city’s own Barangay Council for the Protection of Children (BCPC) Federation.
Through the support of HLAF, facilitated by HLAF Community Organizers, Ms. Emy Torrefiel and Mr. Kio Jerome dela Peña, Quezon City District II, Navotas and Quezon City District V arranged the meeting last Feb. 17, 23 and 25 respectively to hold the election for their BCPC Federation.
Malabon City’s BCPC Federation held their election last July 15, 2016 during the 3rd BCPC Kamustahan at the Penthouse of Malabon City Hall.
BCPC members testified that having a BCPC Federation in every city will acquire them a standardized referral system and will help the processing of children-at-risk and children-in-conflict-with-the-law cases and BCPC networking. It also opens the opportunity to help one another.
