Thousands of people waited for their turn to queue for education assistance from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in its Northern Mindanao regional office in Cagayan de Oro City.

According to netizen Carl Cesar Rebuta, the crowd around the DSWD office had caused the movement of vehicles going to and from uptown Cagayan de Oro to slow down. As of 7 a.m., he estimated the crowd of people at 5,000 and saw a 3-km line of vehicles waiting to pass through.

The throng of people braving the heat to wait in line grew by midday.

Beneficiaries of the educational assistance can get P1,000 for those in elementary school, P2,000 for secondary, P3,000 for senior high school, and P4,000 for vocational and college.
