LAKING-TUWA ng mga kaanak ng 12 Centenarian na residente ng lungsod dahil full support ang Valenzuela city hall sa kanila upang mabigyan sila ng cash incentives kamakailan.
Sa pangunguna ni Mayor Rex Gatchalian ay namigay ang punong-lungsod ng halagang P50,000 para sa mga centenarian sa selebrasyon ng Elderly Filipino Week.
“The local government has been giving out cash incentives to its Valenzuelano centenarians since the passage of Ordinance No. 300, Series of 2016, or the Centenarian Ordinance of Valenzuela City.
This was amended by Ordinance No. 652, Series of 2020, which raises the cash incentive from P20,000 to P50,000 for each centenarian due to the continuous economic inflation and for other economic considerations. Centenarians will receive the cash incentive once every year,” ani Mayor Gatchalian
Sa 12 centenarian residents, pito sa kanila ang katatapos na maging 100 taon, tatlo (3) sa kanila ay 101 years old na at ang dalawa ay 102 years old, na pawang residente ng lungsod sa iba’t ibang barangay
“The City Government of Valenzuela fully supports our senior citizens by ensuring that all benefits intended for them are given for their total well-being and full participation in society.
“Aside from granting cash incentives for the City’s centenarians, the local government has been true to its promise to provide benefits to all Valenzuelano senior citizens through the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA).
“This includes the annual tradition of Pasko Sa Hulyo Para Kay Lolo at Lola – this year being Food Packs Para Kay Lolo at Lola, where around 57,000 senior citizens received food packs filled with canned goods and rice back in July,” sabi pa ni Mayor Rex Gatchalian.
Inihahanda na rin ang Handog Pamasko Para Kay Lolo at Lola 2020 ngayon December.
