On Sunday, President Ferdinand R. Marcos declared that his administration is dedicated to continuing its assistance to weak sectors that have been adversely impacted by rising consumer prices.

In Talisay City, Negros Occidental, he made this vow while he oversaw the disbursement of government aid to various sectors.

“When I go around and visit different places, I make sure that the assistance you anticipate from the government will continue to reach the people,” he added in his speech.

Marcos accepted the fact that many Filipinos still find it difficult to make ends meet as the price of basics and everyday items rose as a result of the recent oil price increases.

“Natin alam medyo mahirap ang buhay talaga ngayon. Everything from gasoline to krudo to the items in the ating mga pangangailangan are toxic, even the presyo. At least we are aware that life is getting harder today, so kaya kahit paano. All of our essential necessities, including gasoline and petroleum, are rising in price. Therefore, at least we can help (even in a tiny way),” he remarked.

Haba nangangailangan ang taong bayan ng tulong, gagawin ng gobyerno lahat para kahit papaano ay makatulong…

(As long as the populace requires assistance, the government will make every effort to provide it.)” he continued.

The head of the Department of Agriculture (DA), Marcos, reaffirmed his commitment to prioritizing actions to boost food production and bring down food prices.

He specifically mentioned the nation’s sugar supply issues, stating that it has been “neglected” for many years.

“Ang problema ay sa industriya ng asukal, marami tayong kailangan ayusin na problem dito sa napabayaan sa ilang taon. The issue is that there are numerous issues in the sugar sector that need to be resolved because they have gone unattended for a while. As a result, we are now gradually bringing it back,” added Marcos.

“Right now, we are just making sure that enough is coming to the people, not just sugar but also all the agricultural products so that at least we can say that there is enough food supply that our people can afford,” he said. “(But) we are just making sure that enough is coming to the people, not only sugar but also all the agricultural products so that at least we can say that there is enough food supply that our people can afford.”

He also voiced optimism for the day when Filipinos would no longer want government help.

He continued, “I think that as long as we continue offering assistance, as long as we continue to improve the handling of the economy, I hope it won’t be long before you won’t need this help but as long as you need it, we are here.”

Marcos presented 100 winners with Assistance to Individuals in Crisis Situation (AICS) grants ranging from PHP5,000 to PHP10,000.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development’s AICS program offers people and families who have been affected by disasters and other emergency or crisis circumstances rapid humanitarian assistance.

Additionally, he presented mock cheques totaling PHP88 million to six farmer organizations as part of the DA’s Philippine Rural Development Project.

Additionally, the DA provided 100 farmers, a grain mill, and three incubators with palay seeds.

Marcos is in Negros Occidental to attend the Township Marker’s unveiling and the Upper East’s inauguration.

He will also be present during the 43rd Masskara Festival’s conclusion.
