Taguig Rep. Lani Cayetano believes poor Filipino families need to receive P10,000 from the government to help them survive amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cayetano joined other lawmakers in marking Labor Day on May 1 by giving P10,000 to 200 workers from 13 districts nationwide.

In a Facebook post, the lawmaker thanked her colleagues in the House of Representatives who made the grant of cash aid possible.

“Hindi man namin kaya na ‘sana all’ ay magpapatuloy po kami, sapagkat ito ay paraan namin upang bukod sa mga kasalukuyang programa ng gobyerno ay makapag hatid tulong sa personal na paraan katuwang ang mga pribadong indibidwal at grupo na naniniwala sa adbokasiyang ito,” she said.

Cayetano said the poor deserve to be given additional assistance on top of the cash aid they earlier received from the government.

“Paniwala ng grupo na hindi naman likas na tamad ang mga Pilipino, talaga lamang napakabigat na ng tama ng COVID sa mga kababayan natin. Habang hinihintay natin ang pag-apruba ng 10k ayuda bill, patuloy lang po ang aming grupo sa paghanap ng paraan na makatulong,” she said.
