May baon pa rin: Along Malapitan gives P2K cash aid to college students
Caloocan Rep. Along Malapitan wants to make sure that students of the University of Caloocan City ang (UCC)-North Campus have funds to buy school supplies amid the pandemic.
Malapitan recently met with 2,000 students to turn over the P2,000 cash assistance on Tuesday, May 4.
In his speech, the lawmaker urged the students to use the money wisely, such as by buying load allowance or data allocation for their online classes.
“Kahit naibigay na natin ang libreng matrikula, hindi tayo tumigil maglaan ng mga bagong programa, lalo na mayroon tayong kinakaharap na krisis. Sana magamit niyo ito upang mas pag-igihin ang inyong pag-aaral dahil pangarap nating makapag-tapos kayong lahat,” he said.
Malapitan thanked the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) for ensuring the continued distribution of the students’ allowance.
