LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu — Two days from now, expect the “young once” to flash their smiles as this city celebrates its Charter Day coinciding with the midyear scheduled cash pay-out of P4,000 each for senior citizens and P3,000 each for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).

Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan disclosed that this coming Friday, June 17, all senior citizens who celebrate their birthday last April and May will also receive a birthday gift of P1,000 each. Last year, the midyear bonus was given in May.

On Friday, June 17, Lapu-Lapu City celebrates its 61st Charter Day anniversary and will be a non-working holiday.

Chan added that June 17 and 18 is the scheduled distribution of the midyear bonus for all elderlies and PWDs here on the mainland of Mactan.

But tomorrow, June 16, is the scheduled pay-out in Olango island’s 11 barangays.

The mayor said the distribution venue will be either the barangay gymnasium or public schools.

City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) head Junard Abalos said the City has a total of 31,737 senior citizens and 6,718 PWDs.

“Bawal ang authorization, siya gyud mismo ang mokuha,” Chan said.

However, for the bedridden beneficiaries, their relatives must inform the City Hall, and personnel will personally visit their homes and deliver the pay-out.

He said the same policy applies to PWD beneficiaries.
