Some 200 solo parents in Navotas have received a P2,000 cash subsidy from the local government to help cover their expenses.

Navotas Mayor Toby Tiangco said the Saya All, Angat All Tulong Pinansyal ng LGU ng Navotas para sa mga Solo Parents is part of its pandemic recovery programs.

“We want to extend as much help as possible to Navoteño solo parents because we know they are one of those who were severely affected by the pandemic. We hope to give them the means to provide for their families, especially now that the expanded face to face classes have started and the prices of basic commodities have increased,” he said.

Navotas, through City Ordinance No. 2019-17, also provides indigent solo parents with P1,000 educational assistance every school year.

To receive the cash assistance, solo parents must apply or renew their IDs and be validated by the City Social Welfare and Development Office
