MANDAUE CITY, Philippines – Registered Mandaue senior citizens will soon receive a P2,000 increase in their yearly financial assistance.

Currently, elders in Mandaue City are receiving P8,000 in financial assistance annually. With the increase, their take home incentive will go up to P10,000.

Mayor Jonas Cortes on Thursday, April 18, said that this is to help seniors in the city especially since most of them have maintenance medicines.
