Cordillera - A man from Baguio city who refused to receive money from the Department of Social Welfare and Development's (DSWD) Social Amelioration Program has been commended of social media for his honesty. 
Mr. Lary Pascua, a resident of Barangay San Vicente in Baguio, was praised on social media after his act of honesty was posted by the Baguio City Public Information Office. 

Pascua wrote on his FB account that he will not receive the cash assistance from the DSWD because his wife was already a beneficiary. 

Pascua said that he refused the money because he believed that there are people out there who badly needed the cash more than him. 

He also commented out that he doesn't want to violate the law because he might face the consequence if he accepted the money

"Thank you po nakapasok ako pero hindi ko na kukunin dahil nakapasok na din ang misis ko at alam kong daming nangangailangan at ayaw ko din lumabag sa batas kaya antay lang po tayo stay safe and God bless us all," Pascua said.
Many netizens praised Pascua for his action.

"Salute to you sir. I wish others who have sources of income will waive the money because other people need it more," one netizen said.

Another netizen said, "Honesty is what we need if there are names that were listed twice so that the money will be given to others."

The Department of Social Welfare and Development-Cordillera reported that the total funds downloaded to the Local Government Units for the Social Amelioration Program (SAP) amounts to P1,307,412,500.00, according to the Philippine Information Agency.

As of 8PM of April 19, 2020, a total of P488,555,850.00 was already disbursed to 103,563 beneficiaries who have received the SAP-AICS Assistance.
