Many companies are close amid the ECQ and several workers won’t be receiving salaries amid no business operations. Unfortunately, it is a struggle on several households as many families could hardly make ends meet.

To ease the burden on the part of the residents most especially the breadwinners of their families who rely on their daily salary, the national government assured to give cash assistance to the qualified residents. Each recipient may get P1,000.00 with a maximum of P4,000.00 per household.
