CEBU CITY, Philippines— Amid the controversies circling around the distribution of the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) in the city of Lapu-Lapu, one unqualified beneficiary was still able to get some aid from the government all thanks to social media.

In the post by Chan on his official Facebook page, he stated that this male PWD was one of those poorest of the poor but was not qualified for SAP.

“Tungod niana, ato siyang gidalhan sa iyang pang-adlaw2 nga panginahanglanon,” said Chan in his post.

(Because of that, we brought him some basic necessities for his daily needs.)

He was able to reach out to “Tatay” as what he calls him on his post after a concerned netizen reached out to Chan on behalf of Tatay.

In the photos, you can see Tatay’s face light up  upon knowing that he has a visitor and no less than the city mayor himself.

“Walay kabutangan ang kalipay sa usa ka PWD sa Brgy Pajo sa iyang pagkahibalo nga ato siyang gibisita sa iyang pinuy-anan,” said Chan.

(A PWD of Barangay Pajo was so happy when he knew that the mayor has visited his home.)

The city government of Lapu-Lapu was able to supply the needed day to day necessities of Tatay with this distribution.

In his post, netizens were also happy with the help that this PWD got from the government.

Levi Noel commented, “Familiar kaau ni si Tatay, Praise God kay natabangan jod siya.”

(Tatay is familiar. Praise God that he received the assistance.)/dbs
