“Ang pagkakaroon ng CIU ay napakalaking bagay para sa mas maayos na sistema ng pagbibigay ng tulong pinansiyal man o anumang serbisyo para sa ating mga kapwa Palaweño,” PSWDO chief Abigail Ablaña said.

The assistance is based on existing Provincial Ordinance No. 2211 or the ordinance “Establishing the New Guidelines for the Utilization of Funds Allocated for the Financial Assistance Incorporated in the Enhanced Crisis Intervention Unit (CIU) of the Provincial Government of Palawan chargeable against the Provincial Governor’s Office, Public Welfare Assistance and Community Assistance Program.”

Under the ordinance, qualified individuals may each receive assistance up to P100,000 depending on the need.
