Gusa 4Ps mother returns cash aid from SAP Gusa Barangay Captain Marlo Tabac’s Facebook Account
A resident from Barangay Gusa, Cagayan de Oro City, returned her cash subsidy worth Php6,000 despite being listed as one of the beneficiaries under the Social Amelioration Program (SAP).
Rosalie Villa, 64 and a mother of six, is an existing member of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps). She believes that she is no longer qualified for the SAP subsidy as she has been receiving cash assistance through the 4Ps.
"Kahibalo g’yud ko nga dili nako pwede makadawat [sa SAP] kay 4Ps ko, maong human nako huna-hunaa, ako dayon gipahatod balik ang kwarta," she said.
Villa immediately asked her daughter to return the money during the distribution of cash grants to SAP beneficiaries in their barangay.
The City Government of Cagayan de Oro has lauded her honesty and hopes that others will follow Villa’s example.
According to the DSWD guidelines, existing members of the 4Ps will receive their COVID-19 cash assistance separately and not under the SAP. The agency has released earlier the list of qualified beneficiaries on their respective media channels.
Gusa Brgy Captain Marlo Tabac also reported that another resident returned his SAP subsidy.
