Personnel of the Cagayan de Oro City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD) Department last night, August 15, 2017, reached out to some 38 Badjaos found begging in the city streets and re-oriented them on the anti-mendicancy law (prohibition of begging) in the city. They were then immediately brought to Bulua Westbound Terminal for their transportation back to their houses in Tambacan, Iligan City.

Government authorities were assisted by Bulua Barangay Police and a group of Badjaos from Agora who helped in the communication (translation of their dialect). See official post in CSWD’s Facebook page below.
