Almost 200 solons to donate 1 month salary to raise P50M for COVID-19 fight - Cayetano




It’s the turn of the House of Representatives to do the selfless act as what they should do everyday being in the service of public service.

House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano announced that almost 200 lawmakers will donate their full salary for the month of May and raise P50 million to help the government in fighting the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19 crisis in the country.


“Almost 200 congressmen will donate our full sweldo ng May. Ang initial target ay P50 million,” Cayetano said in a virtual press conference when asked if Congressmen will also donate salaries for the COVID-19 fight fund just like what the Cabinet members earlier did.

“We want to use the money where it will be most effective,” he added.

Cayetano said they are ready to make another donation if the crisis continues up to June.

“May muna pinagusapan namin, hopefully hindi umabot ng June pero ‘pag umabot pa, then we will make a second call,” he said.
