MABALACAT CITY – Reelected Mabalacat City Mayor Crisostomo Garbo has instructed the city’s medical team and other government employees to look for all the remaining senior citizens, persons with disabilities, and solo parents living in the city, and to have them properly registered so that they may avail the benefits from the programs of the Mabalacat City Government.
Garbo made the clear instruction during Monday’s flag-raising ceremony at the open ground of city hall, exactly a week after the national election.
“Lahat kasama, walang maiiwan. Ikutin niyo lahat ng mga barangays hanggang sa mga remote areas. Alamin ninyo lahat ang mga senior citizens kasama na yung mga magiging senior citizens ngayong taon, lahat ng mga PWDs, at yung mga solo parents natin. Iparegister ninyo sila para wala ng magsa-sana all sa susunod na taon,” Garbo said.
MCG shared his experience during the campaign period when he personally noticed that there are still some senior citizens who has not received benefits from the city’s senior citizen program.
“Sa mga susunod kong pag-iikot sa ating mga kabalen, ayaw ko ng marinig na may mga kababayan pa tayong kabilang nitong mga nabanggit na sektor na magsusumbong sa akin na hindi pa nila alam na may ganito tayong programa para sa kanila,” Garbo added.
Various benefits ranging from social pension to medical assistance for seniors, hospital assistance to employment assistance for PWDs, and educational assistance to financial assistance for solo parents have been provided by the Mabalacat City Government under the administration of Mayor Cris Garbo.
There are exemptions however on who can avail these benefits. Those senior citizens who are already receiving pensions from GSIS/SSS would not be part of the program, and the data will have regular updating.
The reelected mayor who is set to continue his second term was joined by his team who all won with the historic 12-0 result in the recent election. Garbo enjoyed 66,151 votes over his opponent who only got 21,801 votes.
