The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) administered Unconditional Cash Transfer-Social Pension Program (UCT-SOCPEN) for senior beneficiaries with the help of Municipal Social Welfare Development Office held in the Municipality of Capas last Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
A total of 377 beneficiaries coming from 11 barangays (Cut-cut 1, Sta. Lucia, Estrada, Cub-cub, O Donell, Sta. Rita, Sto. Domingo 1, Sta. Juliana, Sto. Rosario, Maruglo, and Talaga) attended and received their Unconditional Cash Transfer (UCT) for the quarter with an additional amount of 2,400 pesos to what they have received.
