THE distribution of cash assistance for students of University of Caloocan City (UCC) started on Tuesday after the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) released the list of pre-qualified student to the office of 1st District Congressman Dale “Along” Malapitan.

Cong. Along asked for understanding on the slight delay of P2,000 educational cash assistance distribution to beneficiaries and explained that the release of the fund must go through proper processes.

“Sana makatulong itong programa sa ating mga mag-aaral. May mga nakita akong posts, ang sabi matagal daw dumating. Ito’y hindi ko po ipinangako. Nabatid ko lang ang pangangailangan ng ating mga estudyante, kaya gumawa po ako ng paraan,” Cong. Along clarified.

“Kaya ‘matagal’ dahil kailangan nating i-replenish ang pondong ginamit. Huwag po sana nating madaliin—gawin natin ito nang tama, nang maayos. Alam kong naiintindihan ito ng mga mag-aaral ng UCC. Hangga’t kaya, handa tayong tulungan ang ating mga mag-aaral,” he added.

Cong. Along also reminded the UCC students to strive to be a good examples and be thankful to for the quality education they are enjoying.

“Batid natin ang hirap na dulot ng pandemya ngunit sa kabilang banda’y napaka-suwerte niyo. Mayroon kayong bagong mga gusali, libreng matrikula at cash assistance. Utang niyo ito sa ating taxpayers kaya’t patuloy niyong pagbutihin ang inyong pag-aaral,” Cong. Along reminded the students.
