P40 million worth of new social welfare building to rise in Davao


Davao City – A new Davao City Social Services and Development Office (CSSDO) will be constructed next year – replacing the old building that has been at the forefront of the local government’s delivery of basic social services to the Dabawenyos since 1996.

The new building is worth P40 million and the fund will be coming from the office of Davao City 2nd District Congressional Representative Mylene Garcia Albano.

The new CSSDO is a 3-storey building that will house the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA), Persons with Disability Office (PDAO) and the operations center of the CSSDO.

The 450-square meter new building will be constructed adjoining the Davao City Hall Annex along Pichon Street.

“It will be more friendly to clients,” said CSSDO Chief Maria Luisa Bermudo. “The new building will also feature accessible structure for the elderlies, persons with disabilities, and pregnant women.” The construction will start early next year. CIO
