The Manila City government will soon begin distributing the second tranche of the P1,000 cash aid from the City Amelioration Crisis Assistance Fund (CACAF) for more than 607,000 families in the city.

Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso announced on Saturday, May 16, that the ordinance for the second tranche of P1,000 cash assistance for city residents has been approved last week.

The Mayor said that the distribution of the P1,000 cash assistance “will be felt” by the public starting next week.

“Ito naman po ang aasahan niyong ayuda sa darating na dalawang linggo ng buhay natin ngayong Mayo. Naaprubahan na po last week ang second tranche ng CACAF. Tayo po ay muling magbibigay sa inyo mga kababayan ng P1,000 pesos per family sa targeted 607,000 families sa Lungsod ng Maynila,” Domagoso said via Facebook Live.

“Iyan po ay mararamdaman niyo na this coming week. We will give that immediately. In our own little way, mga kababayan, in our own little way, maibsan man lang namin yung mga pangangailangan niyo sa buhay,” he added.

Likewise, Domagoso announced that public school students in the City of Manila, from Kinder to Grade 12, will start receiving food packs and hygiene kits within the month.

The Mayor said that about 275,000 students will benefit from the said assistance.
