Mayor Dalipe personally hands over cash aid to more than 1K seniors in Zamboanga City

Zamboanga City Mayor John Dalipe personally distributed cash incentive to over 1,000 senior citizens residing in the island and mainland barangays.

Each of the 1,618 60 years old and above in the east coast received P1,000, an incentive being given to the seniors quarterly by the local government. The city government released a total of P2.46 million.

At the Manicahan Central School covered court, the mayor reached out 1,121 senior citizens from the island barangays of Busay, Landang Gua, Landang Laum, and Tumalutab, as he distributed the P1,000 cash assistance per quarter for each beneficiary, the city government said.

At the Lamisahan covered court, the recipients totaled 497 senior citizens from barangay Lamisahan.

The P1K cash incentive per quarter is in line with the Social Amelioration Program which Dalipe first rolled out in the west coast last July 2023 and has so far benefited thousands of senior citizens in the city, the local government said.

The City Social Welfare and Development Office is facilitating the program.
