Beneficiaries Who Misuse of SAP Cash Aid May Suffer Punishments
The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) warned beneficiaries who misuse the cash aid of SAP may face punishments.
Aside from the corruption of barangay officials, there are lots of report of beneficiaries who are using the cash assistance received from the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) of the government in inappropriate way.
Some beneficiaries are getting arrested for gambling, illegal use of drugs, drugs sale, drinking liquor and illegal cockfighting. Those who misuse the cash aid given will be disqualified for the second tranche of SAP distribution and incoming government assistance, according to DSWD
Even 4Ps (Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program) beneficiaries who will have caught using the cash assistance for illegal purposes may also be ineligible. First offense, authorities will warn the beneficiary, if caught again, the beneficiary will be removed from the list and the slot will be given to those who need the help, based on the report of ABS-CBN News.
“Para makapag identify tayo ng another responsible member of the family na tatanggap nung ayuda, at itong indibidwal o itong miyembro ng pamilya na to ang titiyak at magsisiguro na yong ayuda ay gagamitin para sa pagkain, gamut at iba pang pangangailangan,” said DSWD spokesperson Dir. Irene Dumlao.
She added that this consideration is necessary because some families can go hungry if the government continues to neglect the inappropriate behavior of beneficiaries who have the opportunity to receive the cash assistance from the government.
