Kuya Sy-Alvarado: House to ensure people will receive Covid-19 assistance
Bulacan Rep. Jose Antonio “Kuya” Sy-Alvarado assured his constituents that they will receive benefits and assistance from the government through the subsidies laid out in the recently-passed law granting special powers to President Rodrigo Duterte to solve the Covid-19 crisis.
He asked the people to be patient in waiting for the emergency assistance coming their way, including the P200 billion in available funds that were promised to 18 million indigent families in Luzon.
“Kaya’t konting tiis nalang mga kababayan. Ang tulong ng pamahalaan ay parating na at ito ay ipapamahagi ng ating mga maaasahang LGUs,” Sy-Alvarado said on his Facebook page.
“Sa pagdating ng takdang panahon na matatanggap na ang inaasahan at kayo ay hindi nabigyan ng tulong, ipaalam nyo po ito sa inyong lingkod, Cong. Kuya Jose Antonio R. Sy-Alvarado,” he said.
He said: “Bagamat marami na sa atin ang nahihirapan sa sitwasyon na dulot ng COVID-19, ang ating pamahalaan sa pangunguna ng Kamara De Representante ay nagtulong-tulong upang magpasa ng batas na direkta nang sasagot sa ating mga pangangailangan.”
Sy-Alvarado, chair of the House committee on good governance and public accountability, was one of the members assigned to the newly-formed “defeat Covid-19 committee” in the House.
