Navotas City Mayor Toby Tiangco said he will donate two years worth of salary to provide cash assistance to constituents who are not covered by the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s (DSWD) Social Amelioration Program (SAP).

Tiangco made the announcement on his Facebook page and said his monthly salary, starting April 2020 to the end of his term in June 2022, will be allocated to his constituents affected by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) crisis.

According to him, it will amount to P3,291,809.


“Pina-compute ko na po ang sweldo ko simula April 2020 hanggang matapos ang termino ko sa June 22… Kahit hindi ko pa natatanggap ito, ido-donate ko na ang buong halaga para mabigyan ang mga kababayan natin hindi nakatanggap ng SAP [I already have my total salary until my term ends computed…Although I have not yet received it, I will donate the total amount so my constituents who are not able to receive cash assistance will also be given financial assistance],” he said.

For the meantime, Tiangco said, he would get the amount from his own pocket while he has not yet received the entire two-year salary.

He added that he would let the city’s social welfare department decide on the amount to be given.

“Ang payo ko lang ay isiping mabuti kung magkano ang ibibigay at sino ang bibigyan. Halimbawa, kapag P8,000 per family, 411 families ang mabibigyan. Kapag P4,000 per family, 822 families ang mabibigyan [My advise is that, the social welfare office should think well how much money they would give and who would be the recipients. For example, if P8,000 per family, then there would be 411 beneficiaries. If P4,000 per family, then there would be 822 beneficiaries],” he said.

Local government units are receiving complaints from their constituents that the cash assistance from DSWD, which is dedicated to help families affected by COVID-19, is not sufficient to cover all residents in their cities.

Tiangco said that his two-year salary might not be enough but expressed hope that it might help those who really are in dire need of support.
