Andeng Ynares asks DSWD: Increase cash aid allocation for Antipolo
Antipolo Mayor Andeng Ynares has asked the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) to increase the city’s allocation for cash assistance for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) to ensure those who need it will receive the money.
In a statement Saturday, April 4, Ynares said DSWD only took into account half of Antipolo’s population in deciding who should get the social amelioration cards (SACs), which will be its basis in giving out cash aid.
“Hindi daw pwede ipa-photocopy sabi ng DSWD dahil bar-coded ang mga ito, pero sabi naman ni Speaker Cayetano ay wag tipirin ang SAC forms at ipamigay sa bawat pamilya at hayaan nalang ang DSWD mag validate pag tapos na mai-sumite ang mga SAC forms,” she said.
Ynares said that if DSWD can’t increase Antipolo’s allocation, it should at least clarify news reports that all poor families will receive cash aid from the government.
“Patuloy ang hiling ng mga barangays natin sa DSWD na dagdagan ang mga SAC forms na ibinibigay niyo sa mga barangays o di kaya ay bigyan linaw ang mga kumalat na balita na UNA, diumano’y lahat ng pamilya ay mabibigyan at PANGALAWA, huwag daw tipirin kaya diumano’y pwede kahit xerox copy ng SAC forms at bahala na ang DSWD mag validate,” she said.
