Through a Facebook live, Mayor Binay explained who will benefit from the said program and how much each resident will receive.
"Mahirap man o mayaman, nakatanggap man ng SAP o hindi, kahit saang sector man... mabibigyan po kayo ng ayuda. Ito po ang sinasabi natin, ang MAKA-Tulong P5,000 for 500,000," she said.
