On the SWS Survey on the government’s cash subsidy program

The Social Weather Stations (SWS) National Mobile Phone Survey, conducted from September 17-20, 2020, on the government’s cash subsidy programs showing seven out of ten Filipino families received financial assistance from the government since the start of COVID-19 proves that government help has reached and has been felt by a great number of our people.

This is indeed a fulfillment of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s vow to make up for the loss of economic opportunities when quarantine measures were imposed.

The primary recipients of the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s Social Amelioration Program (SAP) and the Department of Labor and Employment’s Abot Kamay ang Pagtulong (AKAP), Tulong Panghanap-buhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD), and COVID-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP) are the most vulnerable sectors and those severely affected by the lockdown.
