Senators Alan and Pia aid over a thousand Cebuanos in two-day support initiative

The path to recovery from difficult situations became clearer for more than a thousand Cebuanos when the offices of Senators Alan Peter and Pia Cayetano provided support to residents on June 5 and 6, 2024.

Barangay Health Workers (BHW), Barangay Nutrition Scholars (BNS), Day Care Workers (DCW), and women’s group leaders in Catmon and Mandaue were the primary beneficiaries during the two-day support initiative.

On June 5, 2024, the Cayetano siblings’ offices visited Catmon to assist a total of 500 individuals to bolster their income.

“This will help them buy rice, ayun talaga ang kailangan nila dito,” former Vice Mayor Earl Oyas said when asked where the beneficiaries will use the assistance given.

“Makakatulong din ito pambili ng school materials for their kids, kaya salamat po talaga,” he added.

The aid can also be utilized to cover daily expenses and meet the essential needs of the beneficiaries, providing them with crucial financial support.

Along with Oyas, former Mayor and Incumbent Councilor Dan Jusay and Barangay Captain Karem Joromo played important roles to ensure that the residents of Catmon receive the much-needed support.

On the second day, June 6, 2024, 512 residents of Mandaue received aid from the offices of the sibling senators.

During this visit, the offices of the sibling senators also met with women’s groups from an earlier event held by Senator Pia on March 7, 2024 in Cebu.

The success of the Mandaue event was made possible through the efforts of local government units and Representative Lolypop Ouano-Dizon.

The two-day program in Catmon and Mandaue was a partnership between the Cayetano siblings and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) through its Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) program.

AICS aims to assist individuals facing difficult circumstances by providing a range of support services tailored to their specific needs. This includes educational aid, food, transportation, medical support, burial services, and financial help.

Dedicated to their advocacies, the Cayetano siblings strive to support Filipinos in need, helping them recover from challenging situations.
