AROUND 89,000 senior citizens in Cebu City are set to receive their monthly financial assistance amounting to P3,000 starting Saturday, August 13, 2022.

Ester Concha, head of the city’s Department of Social Welfare and Services (DSWS), said Thursday, August 12, that 89,281 elderly will receive their P1,000 cash aid for the months of June, July, and August.

The City Government has allocated P257 million worth of funds for the program, she added.

Concha also reminded the elderly that authorization letters will not be entertained during the distribution.

The City Government will be conducting site distributions in all 80 barangays in the city for five days to give ample time for the senior citizens to claim their financial aid, said Concha.

For bedridden elderly, the DSWS will deliver the cash assistance in their own house. (IRT)
