MCG vows to add 1,000 slots for senior citizen pensioners

MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga — Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo on Monday vowed to allot 1,000 more slots intended for senior citizen pensioners this 2020.

This was gleaned after Garbo distributed social pension to hundreds of indigent senior citizens at FilHomes, Mabiga this town.

The elders received P1,500 each, representing their social pension for the last quarter of 2019.

In his message to the elders, Garbo said the MCG 2020 Vision program includes senior citizens’ welfare.

Aside from pensions which the elders receive quarterly, he added, the city’s top-caliber medical, hospital and financial programs are still available, if the need arises.

“Maliban sa local social pension ay nagpapatuloy rin ang iba pang programa ng siyudad na nakatuon sa pagkalinga para sa mga lolo at lola tulad ng pagbibigay ng tulong pinansiyal, medikal at iba pa upang mas lalong maitaguyod ang iba’t ibang serbisyo para sa mga nakatatandang Mabalaqueño,” Garbo said.

Meanwhile, the Mayor also included in his 2020 vision program a more localized implementation of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program or 4Ps, dubbed as “Pagkain sa Hapag Kainan.”

Garbo vowed to provide infrastructure projects like health stations and educational facilities, to enable the beneficiaries to comply with the health and education requirements of the local 4Ps.

He also dismissed participation of local officials in identifying beneficiaries to maintain impartiality and to avoid the perception of possible political influence.
