On PRRD’s commitment to SAP


President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s vow that no one goes hungry amid the current global health crisis remains firm and unchanged.

The Palace notes that the President has instructed Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Secretary Wendel Avisado to determine how much funds from the 2020 National Budget will be realigned to augment the Administration’s social amelioration measures, pursuant to Republic Act No. 11469.

We likewise confirm that PRRD will ask the assistance of Congress in the finding of additional funding for the second tranche of the Social Amelioration Program to complete the rollout of aid to poor and low-income families.
