70K Imuseño families receive cash aid, 35K still in process

IMUS CITY, Cavite Apr. 27 (PIA) -- More or less 70,000 families in the city had received the Cash Ayuda from the national government or the Lingap Imuseño cash aid based on the updated master list of beneficiaries verified and encoded by the Lingap Center established by the city government.

City Councilor Emoy Francisco reported the status of the cash aid distribution in the weekly FB Live of Imus Mayor Emmanuel Maliksi on April 24, 2021.  He explained the tedious task of validation of the families in the master list from the DSWD based on the CBMS data.

"Napakahalaga po nang ginagawang pagproseso ng checking at rechecking ng mga nakalap na datos mula sa mga nagrehistrong pamilyang benepisyaryo para po makuha natin ang tamang bilang ng miyembro nang bawat pamilya na siya namang i-encode sa Lingap Center para po makapasok sa portal," Francisco elaborated.

Francisco said the processing of data from each barangays of almost 35,000 families in the city will continue which started Monday, April 26, 2021 to expedite the distribution of the financial aid to the remaining beneficiaries.

The updated and correct data will then be used as the basis for the ONE Cash Card system that will be implemented by the city government in partnership with the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) for future distribution of financial aid from the government.

Notably, Imus city is the only LGU in the province that opted for the use of multi-channeled disbursement system with three options for pay-out namely: thru Debit/Cash cards; e-wallet either GCash or PayMaya; and cash pick-up with the MLhuillier.

Meanwhile, Councilor Jem V. Yulo explained that the delay in the distribution of the cash aid is due to errors and inconsistencies in the application forms filled-up by the families, and at times, with instances of technical glitch of double disbursement experienced by several families.

Francisco shared a noteworthy case wherein an indigent head of the family came forward to their barangay official to return the extra cash.

Mayor Maliksi granted a medical assistance to the family upon hearing that a family member is a patient suffering from leukemia and is currently confined at the Las Piñas General Hosptital, in reward to such act of honesty.

On the other hand, Maliksi appealed for patience and understanding to the Imuseños who have not yet received their cash aid. 

"Hindi pa tapos ang pamimigay ng ayuda o ng lingap. Patuloy pa rin ang pag proseso ng mga datos nang mga nagrehistro para sa nasabing tulong pinansyal. Lahat po ay makakatanggap ng ayuda," Maliksi assured his constituents. 

(The distribution of the Ayuda/Lingap is not yet over. The processing of data of those who registered is ongoing. Everyone will receive the help.) (Ruel Francisco with report from the Emmanuel Maliksi FB Live)
