Cebu City—One hundred senior citizens of Barangay San Roque, Cebu City were informed of their benefits and privileges during an orientation on Republic Act No. 9994 last October 27, announced Director Edmundo T. Mirasol.
The orientation is part of the board’s action plan for programs and services that addresses the needs and concerns of senior citizens and persons with disabilities wherein government agencies are mandated to allocate two percent of their total budget for such purpose in support of the provisions of Republic Act No. 9994 and 7277.
“Senior citizens are the fiber which connects the past and present generation,” stressed Director Mirasol on his message.
Conmed Rosemarie G. Oxinio who discussed the RA 9994 said that one of the privileges of senior citizens is 20% discount in actual fare for air transport services and shipping vessels.
