SOCIAL PENSION PAYOUT IN DAVSUR. Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) workers conduct door-to-door payout of social pension to bedbound and PWD beneficiaries in Bansalan, Sta. Cruz, Hagonoy and Digos City. “Walking miles under the intense heat was a pay off as we were welcomed by the older persons with their genuine smiling faces and their outpouring of gratitude,” said Rey Sombilon, Social Welfare Officer of DSWD. To date, DSWD Davao Region has 254,526 potential social pensioners. The monthly stipend of P500 which took effect in January 2011, augments the daily subsistence and other medical needs of indigent senior citizens. (DSWD)
