The word Oragon is a Bicol slang for somebody who is a fighter — feisty, determined, one who perseveres passionately without giving up, unafraid of consequences, and one who stands up for his or her principles.

Bicolanos are known as Oragons who bravely face day-to-day challenges especially during calamities or disasters.

In pursuit of the delivery of social services, DSWD Region V exhibits resilience and excellence in the field of public service emanating the mark of “Serbisyong Oragon sa Lahat ng Panahon”.

As the agency navigates the challenges of our time, the Angels in Red Vests are committed in ensuring fast and efficient implementation of programs and services with extra love and extra care.

Let us collaborate to adapt and innovate to the changing needs of our communities as we uphold the rights and welfare of our poor, vulnerable, marginalized, and disadvantaged population.

Together, we can build a future where every community has the opportunity to prosper and contribute to the development of our society.

Dios Mabalos!
