The provincial government of Negros Oriental has handed over P100,000 cash gift each to five centenarians.

Provincial Social Welfare & Development Officer Rosa Emilia Banquerigo told the media on Wednesday that the P100,000 cash assistance was from the provincial government.

They also received a plaque of appreciation.

Another P100,000 will also be given to the beneficiaries from the national government, she added.

The centenarians received the financial aid on their 100th birthday, Banquerigo said, adding that this is in line with the implementation of Republic Act 10868 or “An Act Honoring and Granting Additional Benefits to Filipino Centenarians and for the Other Purposes”.

The first to receive assistance was Emeliana Cagang from Guihulngan City on April 17.

The other three, Severo Angcon from Pamplona town, Felisa Verzano, and Patricia Bungcasan from Valencia town, received the checks on April 18.

On Wednesday, the fifth centenarian, Patricia De Arca of Mabato, Ayungon, got her check.

Banquerigo said more centenarians are to receive their cash gifts after completing the requirements.

The national government counterpart is also under process, she said. (Judy F. Partlow/PNA)
