Las Pinas City distributed P1,000 cash assistance to 10,000 tricycle and padyak (pedicab) drivers in the city.

Mayor Imelda Aguilar said that the P1,000 cash given is part of the city government’s support to those in the informal workers sector who lost their earnings due to the enhanced community quarantine.

Aguilar ordered the release of P10 million fund sourced from the city’s Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office for the financial assistance.

She said that the beneficiaries were composed of about 6,500 trike drivers who are members of 32 registered tricycle drivers and operator’s associations (TODA) and 3,500 pedicab drivers plying various routes in 20 barangays in the city.

The mayor said that the distribution of cash assistance was being coursed through presidents of various TODAs and pedicab groups who were asked to submit the list of their members which was the basis for the payroll.

Aguilar said that the release of assistance to driver beneficiaries will take about few days to complete as some TODAs were yet to verify their respective list of members.

She pointed out that the financial aid is apart from the food assistance given to city residents since last month during the implementation of enhanced community quarantine.

To date, the city government has distributed more than 80,000 food packs consisting of four kilos of rice, canned goods, instant noodles, and vegetables in the city’s 20 barangays.

Aguilar also reiterated her call for sobriety and cooperation of every city residents as the enhanced community quarantine enters into the fourth week of implementation. She also urged everyone to obey the stay at home order and strictly practice hygiene starting with hand washing and coughing etiquette to help fight the dreaded COVID-19 the soonest possible time.
