“The first batch was on Dec. 6, 2021, with 198 beneficiaries; the second batch was on Jan. 14, 2022, with 264 beneficiaries, and the third and final batch [was held on Feb. 11] with 288 beneficiaries,” said PCUP in a Facebook post.

PCUP chairperson and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Alvin S. Feliciano said that the Commission will “continuously work and coordinate” with other government agencies to promote the welfare and interest of the urban poor communities.
