A total of 60,520 Zambaleño families have received their COVID-19 financial aid as of May 15, 2020.
After the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) over Luzon and other areas was implemented due to the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), work except for frontline services was suspended. This has left workers who rely on daily earnings and those whose jobs cannot adjust to a work-from-home setup without income through the lockdown.
With this and the passage of Republic Act No. 11469, otherwise known as the “Bayanihan to Heal as One Act of 2020”, the National Government through the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) intensified its response to most affected families and individuals of areas under the community quarantine, including the province of Zambales, by providing financial assistance amounting to 6,500.00php which is given per household.
