MSSD unveils program for poor households in BARMM


Bangsamoro Ministry of Social Services and Development (MSSD) Minister Raissa Jajurie led Friday, October 22, the launching of the “Unlad Pamilyang Bangsamoro Program” in Carmen, North Cotabato.

Under the program, the regional government said MSSD targets to improve the well-being of 23,829 poor households in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).

MSSD will provide livelihood seed capital equivalent to P15,000, skills training, monthly 25-kilo rice subsidies, and medical assistance during emergencies.

The beneficiaries are composed of non-members of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), and 4Ps members who are “graduating” from the program due to lack of eligible children aged 0-18 years old, the regional government said.
