600 families in Central Luzon get P10K cash aid
Almost 600 pandemic-stricken families in Central Luzon were given P10,000 in cash aid under former Speaker and Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano’s “Sampung Libong Pag-Asa” program on July 9, officials said.
According to a Sun Star Pampanga report, the beneficiaries in Region 3 brought the number of beneficiaries to more than 5,000 nationwide.
Five hundred families in Tarlac and Pampanga provinces received the cash assistance, while another 100 who left comments on the livestream also received P10,000 each, the report said.
“Very timely po ito kasi alam po natin na lahat sa buong mundo nagkaroon ng recession at talagang nadiskaril ang ating ekonomiya. At dito po sa amin talaga maraming nawalan ng trabaho,” Floridablanca councilor Joe Rey Montemayor was quoted as saying in the report.
“Tingnan mo naman, napakainit hindi makapagtanim y’ung ating mga farmer. Tapos, biglang dumating [itong programa]. Talagang parang galing sa langit ito kako,” Guagua Mayor Dante Torres said.
The Sampung Libong Pag-Asa or 10K Ayuda Bill was launched by Cayetano and his allies in Congress on May 1.
