THE City Government of Caloocan has officially launched its Anti-Sexual Harassment (ASH) desk and hotline to further protect the public from sexual abuse, violence, and exploitation.

Caloocan Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan stated that any kind of sexual harassment or abuse is punishable by law, and that the opening of the ASH desk and hotline is a perfect way to conclude Women’s Month and kick off the Sexual Assault Awareness Month this April. He also shared the ASH hotline, email address and location of the desk for assistance.

“Walang puwang sa Caloocan ang pang-aabuso at pambabastos kaya sinikap namin na maglunsad ng Anti-Sexual Harassment Hotline at Desk sa pangunguna ng Gender and Development Resource and Coordinating Office (GADRCO). Ang sinomang biktima o nakasaksi ng anumang uri ng pambabastos or pang-aabuso ay maaaring magreport sa numero bilang 0956-88-43210 o magpadala ng mensahe sa [email protected]. Maaari rin silang magtungo sa ating GADRCO sa 8th floor, Caloocan City Hall – South,” said Mayor Malapitan.

“Oras na para tuldukan ang sexual harassment. Napapanahon din ang paglulunsad natin ng ASH desk at hotline bago matapos ang National Women’s Month at bilang pagsalubong natin sa Sexual Assault Awareness Month na inoobserbahan tuwing Abril,” the Mayor said.

Moreover, GADRCO Officer-in-Charge Ms. Jan Christine Bagtas addressed the public and encouraged them to seek assistance whenever necessary.

“Sa ating mga kababayan, may kakampi po kayo sa Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Caloocan. Huwag po kayong matatakot na magsumbong o magdalawang isip na humingi ng tulong, bukas po ang ating tanggapan upang gabayan kayo sa mga nararapat na aksyon,” Bagtas stated stressed.
