The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) said on Friday that it has suspended the requirements for the release of the cash grant for the beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program or 4Ps in Marawi City until December 2018.

“We have suspended the conditionalities that will allow them to receive even if they are not attending schools or not going to health clinics, or not even attending the family development sessions,” Undersecretary Emmanuel Leyco, DSWD officer-in-charge, disclosed during the Bangon Marawi briefing in Malacañang.

Last November, the DSWD initially suspended the requirements for the beneficiaries of the 4ps in Marawi City until March 2018. But, Leyco noted, the DSWD recommendation to extend it until December 2018 was already approved.

“The conditionalities for Pantawid families have already been waived for the rest of 2018,” he said.

“We have some 12,000 households who are members of our Pantawid [program] and therefore, we’d like to make sure that the funds are delivered to them,” he added.

Leyco assured the people of Marawi City that the government would always be ready to help them.

“We’d like to assure the people of Marawi that DSWD, along with other government agencies, will stand ready to address their needs,” he said.    /kga
