The Social Pension Program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development has helped a thousand of our indigent senior citizens all over the country. With a monthly aid of P500 pesos, this aims to help them with their food or medicines. With the aim of perfecting the program, it is therefore important to review how the program went, hence the activity.
We were brought back to the legal bases of the said program and the new guidelines was also presented. We, the implementers, hope that the coverage would be widened to include the 60-year-olds, as this is budget-driven for now.
