TABUK CITY, Kalinga- Thirty indigent residents of this city are the beneficiaries of the Sustainable Livelihood Program (SLP) of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) who each received P15,000 in cash assistance Wednesday, May 5.

The fund came from the Livelihood Assistance Grant (LAG) under the Bayanihan 2 of the national government, said Jonaliza Pulacan of DSWD-CAR, adding that all beneficiaries are indigent residents of Tabuk City.

She added that the grant is given to families affected by the lockdown during the enforcement of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).

“Daytuy dijay ibagbaga da nga LAG nga ma-iprovide para iti families, families nga naapektaran idi lockdown tapnu ag-start da manen nga bumangun (This is what they call as LAG and provided to families that were affected by the lockdown and for them to recover),” she said.

She said the money must be used for the put up of business and not for anything else.

Mayor Darwin Estrañero thanked the DSWD for its continuous support to the people of the city during the award ceremony.

Esrtanero reminded the beneficiaries to use the money wisely and avoid getting tempted of using it for unnecessary things or worst use it for gambling activities.

“Nagadu iti pagusaran tuy kwarta nga inted ti gobyerno kadatayu, ket haan tayu lang kuma itay-taya. Nu tumaya ka man, siguraduen tayu nga jay excess money lang tapnu ada mabati para pamilya tayu (There are many ways wherein we can make use of the money given by the government and not for gambling, use the excess money for other things so that there will be something left for your family),” he said.

He said the 30 families are lucky to be chosen and assured that qualified indigent families not part of Wednesday’s grant should not worry because there will be other batches for qualified beneficiaries in the future.

He assured that aside from the DSWD, the local government unit is working hard to provide for families who have been affected by the pandemic.
