Everybody happy! Abby Binay gives P5,000 cash aid for each Makati resident


Makati Mayor Abby Binay has announced the grant of P5,000 to each resident, rich or poor, to help them deal with the COVID-19 crisis.

Binay said every resident is qualified to receive the cash aid, regardless of whether they already received money from the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s Social Amelioration Program.

The money will also be given per individual, meaning the number of beneficiaries per household depend on how many are living under one roof.

To qualify for financial assistance, a resident must be at least 18 years old, a registered voter or have either the city’s Makatizen Card or Yellow Card.

The city government has allotted P2.7 billion for the Makatizen Economic Relief Program.
