THE NATIONAL Government has shown its fullest concerns on the over-aged but indigent citizens to avail the monthly social pension in order that they could cope with their needs being a non-labor class citizens of the country.
The dynamics of this program was given to the Barangay Nutrition Scholars (BNS) of the 33 Barangays under the supervision of the Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office (MSWDO) headed by Mrs. Lydia Serna Gazmen on May 16, 2011 at the Cabugao Cultural and Sports Complex.
Also present were personnel of the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) headed by Ferdinand R. Concepcion. He stressed that this geriatric program is intended for adults aged 77 and above who are already unable to earn his income for old age reasons. The recipient will receive P500 pension per month and they want the listings of recipients for the first quarter release of said pension.
The Sangguniang Barangay will also help the BNS in producing the masterlist of qualified recipients in their respective barangays and submit to the MSWDO for validation.
“This is a timely and very noble program of the LGU to give additional rights to assist senior citizens. We thank the proponents in the provincial and municipal level for their concern to our indigent senior citizens,” expressed Mr. Antonio Sabio, president of the Federated of Senior Citizen of Cabugao.# (Mr. Manolito S.
