Benitez, and Assistant Regional Director for Administration, Francis A. Khayad, in a recent turnover ceremony.
The new OIC-Assistant Regional Director for Operation Ms. Edna S. Benitez was the DSWD’s 2013 National Best Center Head.
OIC-RD Janet P. Armas made history by being the second Cordilleran to head the DSWD in the Cordillera since 1988. The first Cordilleran Director of DSWD-CAR was Dir. Constancia C. Mangaoang. #DSWD-CAR, SOCIAL MARKETING UNIT, Jomel Anthony V. Gutierrez
