CEBU, Philippines — The Cebu City Office for Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) has confirmed that distribution of financial aid to senior citizens will begin on September 29, 2023.

OSCA head Vincent Esmeña said they will be distributing the three-month worth of aid that corresponds to one quarter.

At least 89,987 registered senior citizens will be receiving the P1,000 per month financial assistance summing up to a total of P3,000 each for the three-month period.

Esmeña said the distribution will be done for ten days and will be conducted at the barangay gyms of the respective areas to cater to the bedridden seniors.

"Unya tulo ni ka adlaw sa barangay gym, unya sa pito ka adlaw ari na sa office sa Office of the Treasurer's Office," said Esmeña.

This will be done simultaneously in the barangays in the city that will begin at 5 a.m. as ordered by Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama.

"Atong mensahe sa mga senior citizens na wa mawala na inyong kulba. Ngano man, kay dugay naman mo gapaabot aning tulo ka buwan nga panghatag, ato lang na pahimangno sa atong mga senior citizens, na unta inig adto ninyo sa gym, siguradoa na madala ninyo inyong ID," said Esmeña.

He also reminded the senior citizens to take their time in claiming their entitled aid since the distribution will last up to 10 days, an ample time to cater to all beneficiaries. — (FREEMAN)
