Thus, the CWC launches MAKABATA HELPLINE 1383 during the 30th National Children's Month (NCM) celebration last November 3, 2022.

The MAKABATA 1383 Helpline, which stands for “MAhalin at KAlingain ating mga BATA,” ensures they have someone to report to. To create a society where children are safeguarded and given agency, the Makabata Helpline will coordinate, refer, track, and offer feedback.
