BUTUAN CITY– The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office Caraga through the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program would like to clarify to the public regarding the additional cash grants for rice subsidy.

OIC Regional Director Mita Chuchi Gupana-Lim calls on all Pantawid Pamilya partner-beneficiaries to wait for official notice from the City/Municipal Link Officer as information is channelled through them officially.
“I encouraged all Pantawid Pamilya partner-beneficiaries to wait for official notice from the City/Municipal Links on rice subsidy to avoid misinformation,” said Lim.
