I remember the time that I went to the Manila Post Office to cover an event in behalf of Astig.PH about the distribution of the prepaid cards to the recipients of the MCCTs or the modified conditional cash transfer as part of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, or 4Ps.
Started as one of PGMA’s programs, it’s a good thing that PNoy has continued this program to help the underprivileged.
But as the campaign surfaces, various programs from candidates has plans for the said program. One of which is Mar and Leni’s promise of continuity and improvement of such campaign.
I remember during the MCCT event that I covered that there are so many who needs help, and I’ve only seen Manilenyos and Manilenyas benefiting from this program. It makes me realize how this program benefited homeless street families, indigenous people and displaced families so that they could send their children to school and to improve their way of living.
I think with Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo’s plan to institutionalize the program and making it into a law, it’ll be a great thing for sure! I really pray that the poorest of the people will improve their lives through this program and will rise up again.
It is all about continuity and improvement of our way of living. This is one of the reasons why I’m all for RoRo!
