President Duterte will ask the Congress to help find the additional funding for the second tranche of the social amelioration program (SAP) to help low-income families affected by the COVID-19 lockdown.

Presidential spokesman Harry Roque made the announcement as the government hopes to include those from the general community quarantine in the emergency subsidy program and not just those from the modified enhanced community quarantine .

“President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s vow that no one goes hungry amid the current global health crisis remains firm and unchanged,” he said. On Friday, Roque announced that President Duterte has instructed Budget Secretary Wendel Avisado to determine how much funds from the 2020 National Budget will be realigned to augment the Administration’s social amelioration measures.

In an interview with ANC, Roque said an additional P50 billion is needed for this month alone to give cash aide to all 23 million Filipino beneficiaries, especially those in the MECQ since some industries are only reopening beginning May 16.
