NARRA, Palawan — Over 10,000 families here that were not included in the list of recipients of the different national subsidy programs will receive 2 sacks of rice and dressed chicken from the municipal government.

Mayor Gerandy Danao told Palawan News the beneficiaries are those who did not receive financial subsidies from either the Social Amelioration Program (SAP), SURE Aid or Survival and Recovery Program, Financial Subsidy to Rice Farmers (FSRF).

“Marami tayong nakita na mga tao na may kapasidad na nakasama doon sa listahan. Parang ang nangyari kung sino pa ang wala siya pa ang hindi nakasama, kaya kailangan natin silang mabigyan,” he said.

Danao said the rice sacks will be given along with the second wave of food packs that will be distributed.

He also said that the families will not only receive sacks of rice, but also one whole dressed chicken bought by the government for P60 per kilo.

“Kasama na sa second wave ‘yong mga hindi nakatanggap ng SAP isinama na namin. Nagtampo na ‘yong ibang hindi nakasama sa SAP kaya pinunuan na namin ‘yan, para mabuo na namin lahat, kaya hindi na mabibigyan ‘yong nabigyan sa SAP,” he said.

“Ang napag-usapan na ayuda na ibibigay sa mga tao ay dalawang kaban na bigas at may kasamang manok, at iba pa, ‘yong kilo ng manok na binili po natin ay P60 ang per kilo — baka isipin nag-over priced po tayo. Napakamura na po nyan,” Danao added.

The fund for distribution was from the Bayanihan grant from the national government amounting to P27,117,640 and P20,431,385 from the 20% Development Fund supposedly for road rehabilitation but was realigned to food assistance and for the isolation building.

In addition, Danao is requesting the residents of Narra to bear with them as they are still completing the deliveries of the rice.

“Maghintay-hintay lang po paparating na po ‘yan, makikita naman nila sa mga bara-barangay, nandiyan na po ang mga bigas na ‘yan pero kulang pa nga po dahil hindi pa na-dedeliver. Bubuohin muna natin ang pag-deliver sa mga barangay bago po magdedeliver ang barangay. Kung kailan po makukumpleto ang bigas, saka po natin i-didistribute,” he said.
