Pasig City launches supplemental amelioration program for families not covered by DSWD

News

Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto said that those in need who will not be covered by the national government’s Social Amelioration Program (SAP) will be given assistance through Pasig City Supplemental SAP.

“Malaking tulong ang “Social Amelioration Program” (S.A.P.) ng nasyonal/DSWD, pero marami sa mga pamilyang nangangailangan din ang hindi nakasama sa listahan. KAYA MAGKAKAROON PO TAYO NG “PASIG CITY SUPPLEMENTAL S.A.P.,” Mayor Sotto said.

“Mauuna pong mabibigyan ang nasa listahan ng DSWD (printing na po tayo ng 93K forms). Pagkatapos nito, bibigyan din natin ang mga iba pang nangangailangan pa. Mga 200K na pamilya po ito,” he said.

However, Sotto clarified that the local government cannot match the amount being provided under the national government’s SAP.
