52K seniors in Nueva Ecija receive P1K each
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the family of Nueva Ecija Rep. Estrellita Suansing distributed P1,000 in cash aid to 52,400 senior citizens in Nueva Ecija’s first district
Suansing personally supervised the distribution of the financial assistance to the elderly residents at the municipal gym of Licab town as part of her “Malasakit sa Kapwa” program.
“Lalung-lalo na ito mga senior citizens dahil sila yung nangangailangan ng proteksyon –vitamins, gamot, pang-maintenance nila (Especially the senior citizens because they are the ones who need protection, such as vitamins, medicines for their maintenance),” Suansing was quoted as saying in a Philippine News Agency report.
The report said 13,000 recipients were from the municipality of Guimba; 12,000 from Talavera; 6,500 each from the towns of Sto. Domingo, Aliaga, and Cuyapo; 3,000 each from Licab and Zaragoza; and 1,900 from Nampicuan.
“Balak ko rin na magbigay mga ayuda sa mga tricycle drivers kasi hindi lumalabas yung ating mga kababayan kaya wala silang masyadong kita,” Suansing said.
