PAG-APOD APOD SA UNANG BATCH NGA MAKADAWAT SA SOCIAL AMELIORATION SUGDAN KARUNG BIERNES

After a thorough meeting today with Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, City Social Welfare and Development Officer Lilibeth Filipinas, social workers from DSWD Region 7 and representatives of the 30 barangays it was decided that the first batch of recipients of the 2020 Social Amelioration Program will receive their financial assistance starting Friday in front of the City Treasurer’s Office along Burgos Street.

The beneficiaries are indorsed and pre-determined by DSWD Region as they are already included in the master list and the supporting documents have been found to be valid.

Mayor Remollo appealed to the beneficiaries to prioritize buying for their basic needs and avoid using it for gambling and other vices to support their families.

The barangay officials have been reminded to post the names of the recipients in the public places for transparency in accordance to the DILG directive. The distribution continues as more beneficiaries are validated and listed to be in the next batch to receive the financial assistance.

Police and other volunteers will be deployed to ensure the security of both the cashiers and the beneficiaries.
