Ten local government units (LGUs) in the Bicol Region were able to completely distribute the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) of the national government according to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) regional office Monday, April 27.
The SAP is the Coronavirus disease (Covid-19) response of the government that distributes between P5,000 to P8,000 as financial assistance to the country’s poor population.
According to the DSWD six of the LGUs are from Camarines Sur and these are the municipalities of Siruma, Bombon, Ragay, Garchitorena, Ocampo and Tigaon. The others are Casiguran in Sorsogon, San Vicente in Camarines Norte, Ligao City in Albay and Bagamanoc in Catanduanes.
There is no LGU in Masbate that is included in the top 10 or even top 15 list. The province, however, is also included in the SAP.
