ANGELES CITY — All 2,407 registered solo parents from the 33 barangays will receive ₱1,000 cash assistance, five kilos of rice, and three-month supply of Vitamin C supplements from the city government led by Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr.
Rebecca Peñaranda said the beneficiaries are those who were registered with the solo parents affairs from January to December 2022.
“Wala po ito sa liit o laki ng halaga, pero sa simpleng pagtulong, malasakit, at pagalala po sa sektor ng solo parents ng administrasyon ni Mayor Lazatin,” Peñaranda said.
The cash assistance would be of great help to them, Peñaranda added.
The distribution is set on March 1, which will be carried out via house-to-house.
According to Peñaranda, the house-to-house distribution is now easier since the database for the solo parents’ community in the city’s 33 barangays has been updated and organized.
In 2020 and 2021, indigent registered solo parents also received ₱1,000 cash aid from the city government.
Among the beneficiaries of the livelihood program of the city government are solo parents, particularly in the Angeleño First Facemask livelihood project.
It was also during the leadership of Mayor Lazatin appointed the city’s focal person for solo parents affairs to better serve the sector.
Lazatin’s Chief Adviser IC Calaguas recently presided the meeting for the distribution with Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel, City Social Welfare and Development Officer Edna Duaso, Solo Parent Affairs Focal Person Peñaranda, Angeles City Economic Development and Investment Promotions Office Head Irish Bonus-Llego, and Gender and Development Officer Mina Cabiles.
