CEBU, Philippines —  More than 250,000 of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) in Central Visayas had received their cash grants last Thursday, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-7 said.

DSWD-7 also added that the cash grants of more than 13,000 beneficiaries of the Modified Conditional Cash Transfer (MCCT) were credited last March 24.

MCCT is a sub-component of the 4Ps which uses a modified approach in implementing the conditional cash transfer program for poor families including homeless street families, indigenous peoples, and families in need of special protection.

The cash grants were credited through the Europay, Mastercard, and Visa (EMV) card and can be withdrawn from any Land Bank of the Philippines automated teller machines (LBP-ATMs) or any ATM subject to minimal charges.

“Dako gayud ang matabang aning cash grant namo nga madawat karon labi na nga nahunong kadiyot ang trabaho sa akong bana kay ga-community quarantine man ta batok sa COVID-19,” said Sergia Daza, a parent leader of Barangay Ermita, Cebu City.

Her husband is a construction worker.

While the beneficiaries were queuing at an ATM, 4Ps beneficiaries observed physical distancing and wore face masks. They also brought hand sanitizers for disinfection.

DSWD-7 employees like the City/Municipal Links and City/Municipal Roving Bookkeepers observed in the proper conduct of the payout in coordination with the Philippine National Police.

The 4Ps is a program of the national government that invests in the health and education of poor households primarily of children aged 18 and below.

It is implemented by the DSWD together with the Department of Health and the Department of Education.  GAN (FREEMAN)
