A total of 35 accommodation establishments employees received P3,000 cash from the Sipalay City government recently.
Mayor Maria Gina Lizares led the distribution of the cash assistance with Jerick Lacson of the City Tourism Development and Promotion Office and Ivy Gallenero of the City Social Welfare and Development Office.
The financial assistance is the city government’s commitment to support workers whose industry is affected by the global pandemic.
The beneficiaries were identified as those who did not receive previous financial assistance from government agencies.
