1st Year of Mamasapano Clash

House extends financial assistance to the families of the fallen SAF 44.

Last year, the Speaker led the House in a fund drive for the families of the SAF 44 by authoring House Resolution No. 181 which provides that as an expression of gratitude for their sacrifice in the service of their country. 

The House also extends financial assistance to the families of the fallen SAF 44 who were killed in the line of duty and those who survived the clash.

The resolution, in consolidation with HR 186, was adopted on Feb. 3, 2015.

The House, through lawmakers, Secretariat officials and employees, and congressional staff collectively raised a total of Php5.3 million in financial assistance for beneficiaries of the SAF 44, 15 SAF survivors and 15 soldiers wounded in the Jan. 25, 2015 Mamasapano clash.

Malacanang said on Sunday the total amount of assistance given to them has now reached Php188 million.

Here are the breakdown:
  • Php151.2 million in the form of mandatory lump sum benefits
  • Php10.1 million from the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the National Police Commission (Napolcom)
  • Php26.87 million total donation

Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said
”For the information of the public, we are ready to provide them with data so that they will understand that the government has tried its best to provide the necessary assistance,”
