Iloilo releases P57M ‘gift’ to volunteer workers    


ILOILO – In gratitude of their hard work, 14,250 volunteer workers here will be given P4,000 allowance each to make their Christmas merrier this December.

Governor Arthur Defensor Sr. has instructed the Provincial Treasurer’s Office to cash advance P57-million for the payment of the said allowance on December 12-15, 2016.

Giving allowances or cash gifts to volunteer workers has been a “tradition” that the governor continued since 2010.

The provincial government provides P2,500 annual cash gift each volunteer worker and the governor gradually increased it from 3,000 in 2014 to P4,000 in 2015.

He justified that raising the cash gift can help bring more food to the table of the families of the volunteers, especially during nochebuena.

Barangay health workers, barangay service point officers, day care workers and barangay nutrition scholars can get their cash gifts in the following designated payment centers:
