A total of 243,035 or 78.59 percent of target beneficiaries have already claimed the ECQ Special Ayuda as of August 19. This was disclosed by the City Government of Cagayan de Oro as it continues to distribute the cash assistance from the National Government through the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). Meanwhile, the DSWD approved the request of City Mayor Oscar Moreno to extend the payout.
It can be recalled that Acting City Administrator Teddy Sabuga-a Jr., City Social Welfare and Development Overseer Michael Christopher Fabello and City Treasurer Jasmin Maagad received the cheque from DSWD Field Office X last August 4, 2021 amounting to P767,824,000 for the ‘ECQ Special Ayuda’.
