“Lagi po nating linilingap at binibigyan ng halaga ang kalusugan at kapakanan ng ating mga senior citizens,” Lazatin said

This is the 5th year in a row that all registered senior citizens will receive the regular ₱1,000 cash assistance and three-month supply of Vitamin C supplements which started during the pandemic last 2020.

“Tuloy-tuloy po ang mga programang nasimulan natin para sa ating mga senior citizens. Tayo po ulit ang bababa sa kanila,” Lazatin furthered.

The distribution of financial assistance is being supervised by Lazatin’s Chief Adviser IC Calaguas and Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel.
