Angeles City gov’t apportions P5-M for solo parents

ANGELES CITY — City government of Angeles has apportioned PhP5 million financial assistance to about 5,000 registered solo parents.

“Each solo parent will receive PhP1,000 cash assistance from the city government as the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) entered its 3rd week,” Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr said.

Lazatin added that the city government will extend its assistance to all sectors of society in these trying times as most residents are unable to work and make ends meet.

ECQ, meant to curb the rising number of cases of coronavirus disease, will be implemented in the entire Luzon from March 17 to April 13
