In a groundbreaking move, the city of Manila initiates the "Unang Abuloy ng Maynila" Program today, marking a significant milestone in providing funeral assistance to grieving families. This compassionate effort comes to life with the signing of Ordinance No. 9019 by Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan.

Authored by District 6 councilor Salvador Philip Lacuna, the ordinance is designed to extend a helping hand to the bereaved families of all Manilans, offering a funeral assistance grant of 3,000 pesos. The program is open to bona fide residents of the city or duly registered voters of Manila. For deceased minors, eligibility requires the parents to be residents of Manila or registered voters.

Mayor Lacuna-Pangan has entrusted the coordination of the program to the barangays, working through the Manila Barangay Bureau and Liga ng mga Barangay. They are tasked with promptly reporting the demise of residents or registered voters to ensure a swift response.


To facilitate this, the city has established dedicated hotlines for each district, allowing residents to reach out and seek assistance during these challenging times:

  • DISTRICT 1: 0927 346 6667
  • DISTRICT 2: 0919 810 6787
  • DISTRICT 3: 0919 358 1842
  • DISTRICT 4: 0905 364 8189
  • DISTRICT 5: 0997 882 4763
  • DISTRICT 6: 0922 714 4752

This compassionate initiative demonstrates Manila's commitment to supporting its residents during times of grief, reinforcing the city's dedication to the welfare of its citizens.
