Two centenarians receive 100k cash gift

May 13 - 19, 2017

MAASIN CITY – For the first time in Maasin City, two centenarians received their 100,000 pesos cash gifts from the Department of Social Work and Development (DSWD) in recognition to their longevity during a simple awarding ceremony at the Maasin City Hall last May 6, Saturday.

The two centenarians are Simeona Basa, 103 years old and Flaviana Plateros who just turned 100 last January 2017.

The new law (Centenarians Act of 2016) mandates that upon reaching the age of 100, every Filipino residing in the Philippines or abroad shall be honored with a letter of felicitation by the President of the Philippines and a P100,000 centenarian’s gift.

Among those who witness the event are City Social Work & Development Officer Fe Sta Cruz, DSWD-SWO Yvonne Bonales, Councilor Ma. Effie Abiera-Sabandal and Maasin City Police Chief Alex Dang-aoen.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
