Manila LGU awards educational assistance to beneficiaries

The Manila city government, through the Manila Department of Social Welfare, distributes the financial aid to the beneficiaries of the Educational Assistance Program.

Manila Mayor Maria Sheilah “Honey” Lacuna-Pangan, together with Manila Department of Social Welfare Director Ma. Asuncion “Re” Fugoso distributed a total of P3,370,000 to 674 recipients from districts 1, 4, and 6.

“Makakaasa po kayo nga ang pamahalaang Lungsod ng Maynila ay gagawin at mag-iisip ng mga paraan para lalong maibsan ang napakabigat na suliranin, dahil hanggang ngayon ay nasa ilalim pa rin po tayo ng state of health emergency,” the Mayor stated.

This is the first out of four batches, wherein more than 2,000 recipients from Manila are expected to receive the assistance.
