“Pang 1 week lang yun”, 4P’s Beneficiary Reacts to Government’s 8k Financial Assistance
A 4P’s beneficiary expressed her reaction to the government’s 8k cash aid for poor families: “Pang 1 week lang yun”.
Over the past few weeks, the Philippine government is already implementing stricter rules and regulations as a part of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon. The new measure limits the movements of the residents to contain the spread of the coronavirus outbreak.
The government is already exerting extra effort to extend help to the less-fortunate Filipino people whose livelihoods were affected by the quarantine orders. Local government units were giving relief goods and cash aid to help poor families.
Recently, the Facebook page “GMA News” has shared the video footage of a 4P’s beneficiary who expressed her reaction regarding the P8,000 cash aid given by the Philippine government.
Alma Aquino, a beneficiary of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) is spending the P8,000 cash aid wisely. Aquino said that she is spending around P500/day in food alone to feed their family of eight.
In the video, it can be seen that a reporter asked the beneficiary: “Yung P8,000 po na tulong pinansyal kakasya po ba yun sa inyo sa isang buwan?”
Aquino replied: “Maam hindi po, mga ano nga lang ma’am yun, mga one week lang yata”.
