Family is family.

And yes, including LGBTQ+ partners which were considered as families. This announcement had the netizens in an uproar.

This step of inclusion and acceptance, considering LGBTQ+ partners as a family when technicalities often say they are not have gained the approval of the public.

The program gives a total of PHP 8,000 to each family to help them with any expenses during the Enhanced Community Quarantine.

“Ang gagawin po natin sa Pasig, nakahanap po kami ng pondo. Over P1 billion po ‘yung na-identify natin na pondo para dagdagan po ‘yung tinatawag nating Pasig Suplemental Social Amelioration Program,”

– Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto

“Kung naliliitan siya sa pinamimigay ng city ibig sabihin hindi niya kailangan ‘yun,” Sotto said. “Alam ko naman kung magkano sweldo niya dati. Hindi naman siya mahirap.”

The Supplemental Social Amelioration Program is the government’s cash subsidy given to help families cope with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
