A total of 1,031 individuals received financial aid from the office of Congresswoman Ma. Lucille L. Nava during the distribution of assistance on March 14, 2024 at the Provincial Capitol Gym, San Miguel, Jordan, Guimaras.

The cash aid was given to the residents of the Province of Guimaras who have applied for medical assistance to cover up their medications, burials, and hospital bills from the month of December 2023 to February 2024 with every recipient receiving Php 3,000.

Most of the beneficiaries came from the Municipality of Buenavista with 450, 188 from Jordan, 137 from Sibunag, 132 from San Lorenzo, and 124 from Nueva Valencia.

Congresswoman Nava assured that to the best of their ability together with Governor JC Rahman A. Nava will allocate funds for financial assistance for the medical needs of the people of Guimaras.

“Sa tanan nga pumuluyo nga ari diri subong, gina tinguha-an gid namon ni Governor Rahman nga every year, indi mawad-an sang pondo diri sa DSWD para matapudan ta ang inyo medical needs.

In behalf sang aton palangga nga gobernador, Governor JC Rahman Nava kag sa akon opisina, tinguhaan ta guid nga ang tanan naton nga kinahanglanon maatipanan, wala labot sa aton imprastraktura kag sa tanan naton nga kinahanglanon, tinguhaan ta guid nga matib-ong ta ang probinsya paagi sa pagbulig sa aton pumuluyo. Sa padayon naton nga pagpanglakaton padulong sa masanag nga palaabuton, ululupod kita tanan kay indi ta na masarangan kung wala kamo,” she said.

The program is in line with Governor Nava’s development agenda dubbed “Kabataan FIRST” which includes providing responsive healthcare and social welfare and development services.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) facilitated the release of financial aid to the beneficiaries.
