Las Piñas City was ranked No. 2 among cities in Metro Manila in compliance with the government’s Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps).
Mayor Imelda Aguilar thanked the Department of Social Welfare and Development – National Capital Region (DSWD-NCR) for recognizing her city in its effort to implement the program for the welfare of the people, especially poor families.
She said the local government got a 98.4 percent compliance in health, education, deworming categories, and family development sessions.
The city chief executive said Las Pinas ranked second on the list after members of the city’s Social Welfare and Development Office, CityLinks and the social welfare assistants worked hard in continuing to give better services to residents belonging to 4Ps category.
Aguilar said the City Health Office, Department of Education (DepEd), and the Local Development Council also took part in prioritizing programs for 4Ps.
Previously, Las Pinas City ranked 13th among other local government units in the National Capital Region in the said category.
Aguilar earlier promised that in her third and final term as city chief executive, she will be focusing more on health and other services intended for poor families.
She said the services and programs her administration had previously initiated will continue but needs to double the efforts for more improvement that will benefit residents.
