A third tranche of the social amelioration program (SAP) may not be coming anytime soon, but some residents of Navotas will have money to tide them over the next few days.

Navotas Rep. John Rey Tiangco is grateful to Senator Francis Tolentino for giving funds so 1,000 of the city’s residents can receive P1,000 each in cash.

The distribution of cash aid happened on February 18 at the San Jose Academy’s covered court, when Metro Manila was still under general community quarantine.

In a Facebook post, the lawmaker said that among the cash aid’s beneficiaries were senior citizens, persons with disabilities, tricycle drivers, jeepney drivers, fisherfolk and indigent students.

Tiangco was joined at the distribution of cash aid by Tolentino’s chief of staff, Jojo Ferma.
