To start the awarding, PD Cleotilde Duran delivered her welcoming remarks, she acknowledged the presence of DTI staff and recognized each beneficiary by calling them one by one. She said that it is better that beneficiaries are going to receive livelihood kits or items than cash because these items will last for months or even years, unlike cash which lasts only days.

The program ended at 1:00 o’clock in the afternoon.
