MANILA - Pasig City aims to finish the distribution of the national government's cash assistance to low income families within the next few days, Mayor Vico Sotto said Tuesday.

Sotto said his administration has so far distributed "less than half" of the P750 million financial aid to some 93,000 poor households in the city.

"The whole process will take around 7 days. Maayos naman ho 'yung distribution. There are some glitches along the way. There are certain details siguro na could’ve been done better but all in all satisfactory naman po 'yung pamamahagi ng SAP (social amelioration program) sa amin," he told ANC.

Sotto said they are expediting the release of the national government's cash aid to make way for the distribution of financial assistance to some 150,000 more families who were excluded from the social welfare department's list.
