Marisol Casabuena's job is to make sure that children who committed crimes in Quezon City receive the services, support and guidance they need to help them reintegrate into society. Currently there are 238 children in the Molave Youth Home (Bahay Pag-asa) in QC and a staff of 50 under Marisol's watch. β€œMay stigma talaga. Hindi porke’t may nagawang krimen, automatic kulong agad. Dapat tulong-tulong ang barangay at ang social worker para matulungan ang bata,” she said. It’s a challenging job, but what motivates Marisol is seeing the positive results of her work. β€œAng pinakamasayang part is kapag nakita mong nagbago yung bata. Yung simpleng matuto sila ng β€˜po’ at β€˜opo’, malaking bagay na yun,” she shares with a smile.

For Women's Month, we're featuring women who work to improve Filipino children's lives! πŸ‡΅πŸ‡­ Samia Macaraya is a Sanitary Inspector in Lanao del Norte. She helps families stay healthy by monitoring the environmental sanitation of communities and evacuation centers. β€œI think my work is important because dirty water and improper hygiene can cause people to get sick from sicknesses such as diarrhea, vomiting and rashes,” she said. #IWD2018

#throwbackthursday As we continue our work for children this year, we look back at our long history in the Philippines. In the 1950s, UNICEF supported the government's vaccination campaign against tuberculosis by providing medical equipment, vehicles and lab supplies. Today, we continue to support DOH to ensure that infants receive complete routine vaccination to protect them from diseases such as TB, hepatitis, polio and measles. πŸ’‰ #vaccineswork (πŸ“· ©️ UNICEF/ICEF-2539)
