Woman Caught on Video Grouping Three Families into One for Social Amelioration

A woman was caught on video as she grouped together three families to answer one form, telling them they would have to divide the money and relief goods they are set to receive under the social amelioration program. When someone questioned why that was so, she told them to choose if they wanted to receive the money or none at all!

Social Amelioration for the Poor

Under the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) “Bayanihan Fund: Tulong Laban sa COVID-19”, financial assistance will be given to families across the Philippines to help them survive the enhanced community quarantine imposed by the president or their local officials to combat COVID-19.

Priority is given to poor families; thus, the DSWD will still conduct an assessment after receiving all the forms. However, Pres. Rodrigo Duterte and also Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano clarified that the financial assistance is not given per house but per household. This means that if there are three families living in one house, they will receive three forms.

But the woman in the video uploaded by Facebook page cut#share was doing the opposite thing. Instead of giving every family one form to fill up and sign, she grouped three families into one form and told them that this is the proper way to answer the forms.

She went on to explain that the families will receive the first Php2,500, with Php1,000+ of it in relief goods, and the next Php4,000+ in cash. She urged the gathered families to choose who among their relatives and neighbors they choose as groupmates so they can later divide the relief goods and money among themselves.

Instead of each low-income household getting one form and later financial assistance, they have to divide the money among themselves!

Due to Unpaid Rent, Landlady Removes Roof of House Rented by Pregnant Woman

Due to unpaid rent, a heartless landlady removes the roof and even the door of the house rented by a pregnant woman! Kind neighbors had to help her out, especially because it was raining when this happened. Tsk. Tsk.

Unpaid Rent Due to Crisis

The COVID-19 crisis has affected a lot of people, with many losing their jobs and not being able to pay the rent or amortization for their homes. What is sad is that though the government specifically told landlords to provide a grace period for their renters, many still force them to pay up.

There have already been a number of reports of families being forced out of their rented homes because they were unable to pay the rent. But others have a different way of doing it.

One heartless landlady could not forcibly evict her tenants because of the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, officially designated as Republic Act No. 11469. However, she did something that is still akin to forcing them out: removing the roof and door of the rented house! Tsk. Tsk.

In a video shared by concerned neighbor Czairra Alliyah Cheng, a family could be seen scrambling to take their things out of harm’s way as the rain poured down inside their house because the roof was gone.

It turned out that the roof was removed by a certain ‘Aling Tess’ who owns the rented house. According to the post by Cheng, the family was unable to pay the rent because the pregnant woman’s husband is stuck by the lockdown and is in Bulacan.

The heartless landlady removed the roof and door, telling Cheng she will also remove her door if she keeps interfering. Cheng and the family already took the matter to the barangay.

Rent Payment in Bayanihan to Heal as One Act

Tenants may enjoy extended deadline to pay rent under the ‘Bayanihan’ law. Under the law, the President is given power to “provide for a minimum of 30-day grace period on residential rents falling due within the period of the enhanced community quarantine, without incurring interests, penalties, fees, and other charges.”

‘Blogger’ Makes Fake Order

The Facebook page of Chacha Special Binalot Sa Dahon, a restaurant in San Pedro, Laguna, shared the bad experience they had with a fake order they received from someone who claims to be a ‘blogger’.

A certain Reynan Gañete made an order from the restaurant, to be delivered at around 7PM to 8PM. The order was worth Php1,011 and they charged him only Php50 for the delivery fee. This person told them to bring change for Php1,500.

Close to 7PM, the restaurant asked him for the landmark as the rider was already on the way to bring the food to the customer’s house. But the customer told them to cancel the order, saying that his cousins chose to just cook pancit canton instead of the food they ordered from the restaurant.

The restaurant told him the food was already cooked and was even being delivered to his house at the time he was chatting with them. But the guy told them to simply tell the rider that the order was canceled because they’ll be eating pancit canton instead.

Even though the restaurant told him the food was ready and on the way the customer just laughed it off and told them he’s not paying because this is actually a prank! When the restaurant pointed out that they were just trying to make a living, the ‘blogger’ said they were also doing the same thing…

Catfishing for ‘Pranks’

Netizens were angry at the ‘blogger’ guy named Reynan Gañete and they shared his photos, but it turned out the guy’s face was simply used by the fake account!

While catfishing is popular as a means of finding online lovers, it is also being used to make ‘pranks’, such as the one that victimized the restaurant.

Pinoy Nurse Loses Housekeeping Job in Canada, Becomes COVID-19 Frontliner

A Pinoy nurse lost his housekeeping job in Canada but becomes a COVID-19 frontliner, finally working in a job that’s close to his profession.

Nurse Turned Housekeeper

It is not a secret that many Pinoys dream of finding a job outside the country to give a better life for their families. But landing a job in your profession is a big challenge. That’s why many go to these foreign countries to work as unskilled workers, using this as stepping stone to eventually finding a job in their profession.

Frank Pangan worked for over 10 years as nurse in the Philippines. He dreams to follow his mother and sister in the US, but his visa keeps getting denied. After his fourth try to get to the US, he changed his dream and applied for Canada where he applied as international student.

Pangan finally fulfilled his dream of going to a foreign country to work. As an international student, he was allowed to work part-time. Thus, he found a job as a housekeeper at a hotel, earning $14 to $15 per hour.

Mahirap magkudkod din ng mga kubeta. Tama lang naman ‘yung mga kikitain namin just to pay for the house rent,” Pangan admitted.

A manager at a rehab facility in New Jersey, Pangan’s mom Generosa did not approve of his choice of work.

Sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Franklin, hindi ako nagsakripisyo, nagpakahirap para makatapos ka [tapos] ipinagpalit mo bilang housekeeper.’ Masakit sakin ‘yon,” she said.

Pangan was determined to work, despite being a housekeeper. He felt that he was one step closer to his dream. But the COVID-19 crisis hit. The university was closed and Pangan lost his job at the hotel. He didn’t know what to do and thought about giving up, unsure about his future now.

But he weighed his options and decided to try find a job. With the pandemic affecting so many places, there’s a shortage of healthcare workers. Thanks to a friend, he landed a job as a Personal Support Worker (PSW) at a retirement home.

The retirement home had several positive cases but his training as nurse came in handy. As a frontliner handling COVID-19 positive patients, he has to work covered with PPEs. He remains optimistic that he would live through the crisis and see his family again, whom he had not seen in over 8 years.

Nakakapangamba, kasi s’yempre ‘yung paa mo, parang ‘pag papasok ka sa trabaho, ‘yung isa nasa hukay. Pinagpe-pray ko every day, sana matapos na ‘to. Sana matupad ‘yung pangarap ko, nag-iisa lang ‘yun, makasama ko ‘yung nanay ko, makasama ko ‘yung kapatid ko,” Pangan said.
