'Sendong' victims in Region X to get 4Ps grant

MANILA, Dec. 31 – Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Corazon "Dinky" Juliano-Soliman said that "Pantawid Pamilya Pilipino Program" (4Ps) beneficiaries who were affected by typhoon “ Sendong” and were unable to comply with the health and education conditionalities will still receive their cash grants for November and December.

She added that beneficiaries would receive their cash grants this January.

“We have waived the non-compliance of the co-responsibilities of the beneficiaries such as going to the health center and school attendance because we understand the ordeal that they are going through,” Soliman said.

The DSWD-Field Office X is currently validating the 4Ps beneficiaries who were affected by tropical storm “Sendong.”

The latter is the conditional cash transfer program of the Philippine government implemented by the DSWD, which provides poor families cash assistance for the health and education needs of their children 0-14 years old.

A qualified beneficiary receives as much as P1,400 provided that they comply to the conditionalities of sending their children to school and health centers for regular check-ups. (PNA) RMA/PFN
