Since January 29, 2021, Davao City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) has distributed the annual financial assistance to qualified senior citizens in the metro. Still, CSWDO (Davao) stresses out that no senior citizens are allowed to go out. Hence, a representative has to claim it on their behalf.
The conduct of the payout is compliant with the safety protocols. Stakeholders are to wear face masks and face shields at all time. Also, the team has provided necessary sanitation materials.
Further, strict physical distancing has been observed to abide by the standard protocol.
