DSWD DISTRIBUTES P7.7-M TO NEARLY 2K COLLEGE STUDENTS IN ABRA
THE DEPARTMENT of Social Welfare and Development has distributed P7,768,000 to 1,942 college students in the province of Abra, an official said.
Amelyn Cabrera, assistant regional director for operations of the DSWD in the Cordillera Administrative Region, said 1,369 students in Bangued and 573 in Lagangilang received the financial assistance.
Each learner received P4,000.
Cabrera said it was Abra’s lone district representative Menchie Bernos who searched for funds which were distributed by the DSWD.
“Si Congresswoman Bernos ang naghanap ng pondo na idinaan sa DSWD ang distribution kasi maraming nag apply noon na hindi inabot ng pondo na nai-allot ng DSWD,” she said.
Abra has four colleges — Divine World College, Abra Valley, Data Center and the Abra State University.
