PCUP to intensify delivery of services

The Presidential Commission on Urban Poor on Monday vowed to intensify its delivery of government services to urban poor communities through various programs and projects.

Alvin Feliciano, PCUP chairperson and chief executive officer, said the public is not aware that the government has a lot of pro-people programs, and a lot of money, too (to fund them).

Most of the urban poor communities cannot access government services due to lack of information, he lamented.

PCUP is a bridge of the marginalized to the government to take an extra mile on intensifying public information campaign on government services to poor areas, he said.

The agency shall continue to extend caravan services through its free services of medical, dental and eye checkup; circumcision; mental health awareness; local and international jobs fair; motor vehicle registration orientation; overseas Filipino workers help desk; processing of birth, death and marriage certificates; legal services; body and foot massage; health registration, and membership, Social Security System voluntary membership, among others, Feliciano said.

The event has a theme of "Pinagsama-samang Serbisyo, Para sa Tao!"
