“For this week, we intend to distribute the P1,000-P4,000 cash aid to 10,309 NavoteƱo families. We have set up five distribution venues to ensure that everyone will be accommodated and served promptly,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.  

“We have posted in our social media account the partial list of beneficiaries in the masterlist. We will also post regular updates on how many have received their cash assistance,” he added.

Included in the first batch of beneficiaries were residents of Barangays Bagumbayan North and South, Bangkulasi, Navotas East and West, San Jose, San Roque, Tanza 1, and Tanza 2.
