BUTUAN CITY (12 January) – Si Pangulong Gloria Macapagal Arroyo gitakda nga mang-apod apod og cash cards ngadto sa mga benipisyaryo sa programang “Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program” kon 4 P’s, karong Biyernes, (Enero 15) didto sa Dapa, Siargao Island, probinsiya sa Surigao del Norte.

Matud pa, si Surigao del Norte Cong. Francisco T. Matugas kauban si Dapa Mayor Peter (Boy) Ruaya ang mosugat sa pagbisita ni Pres. Arroyo sa probinsya, samtang si Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Caraga Regional Director Mercedita Jabagat ang mu-assistar kang Pang. Arroyo sa pagpang-apod-apod sa maong cash cards.

Mismong si 4P’s focal person Wilma B. Geralla sa DSWD-Caraga and misaysay nga plantsado na ang listahan sa mga beneficiaries nga makadawat sa maong cash cards ug kini magikan sa 12 ka mga barangay sa maong lugar.

Dugang ni Geralla, ang kinatibuk-ang kantidad nga ipang-apod-apod mikabat na sa P5 milyon sa maong probinsya.

Sa rehiyon sa Caraga, nakatabang ang maong programa sa gobyerno nga may pundong kapin P178,705,000 ang nahatag ngadto sa pamilyang nakabenipisyo niini.

Sa talaan sa 4P’s program, halos 73,016 ka pamilyang Pilipino na sa tibuok Caraga Region ang nabenipisyuhan sa maong pinansyal nga tabang sa gobyerno, sulti ni Geralla.

Ang 4P’s program sa gobyerno ang tipik sa dakong solusyon sa pagpakunhod sa poverty incidence nga kasamtangang nasinati sa nasud sa Pilipinas.

Ang cash grants gikan sa nasyunal nga pundo ang itunol sa gobyerno aron matagaan sa pinansyal nga panginahanglan ang pamilyang ubos ang panginabuhian.
