The Department of Social Welfare and Development Field Office VI announced on Wednesday, September 14, that there will be no educational assistance payouts for indigent students in Western Visayas on September 17 and 24 because the funds provided by the DSWD Central Office have run out.
There have been 36,131 students-in-crisis who have been given a total of P101,326,000 in educational assistance in the region so far, the DSWD VI said in a statement posted on its Facebook page.
Much as they would like to continue the distribution of educational assistance there are no funds left, it added.
The DSWD VI office has submitted a proposal to the DSWD Central Office but so far no additional funds have been downloaded, the statement said.*
