More than a hundred thousand devotees of the Black Nazarene join the annual procession to Quiapo Church, and at the heart of this religious tradition are Filipinos’ prayers for a better life, said National Anti-Poverty Commission Secretary and Lead Convenor Liza Maza.

NAPC Secretary Liza Maza expressed grave concern over the spate of killings in the country after a number of religious figures and indigenous peoples have reportedly been murdered in recent days.

“Spending billions of pesos on the conditional cash transfer (CCT) program won’t help reduce poverty; providing basic social services and adequate jobs for the poor will,” anti-poverty chief Liza Maza said.

The National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC) reminded the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) to stand by its earlier decision to place some properties of the Hacienda Luisita, Inc. (HLI) back under the coverage of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) amid tensions in the said areas between farmers’ groups and the provincial police.

NAPC Secretary Liza L. Maza urged the housing agencies and local government units (LGUs) to expedite the process of granting security of tenure to urban poor communities residing in areas reserved for socialized housing purposes by presidential proclamations.

Anti-poverty Secretary Liza Maza urged the government’s housing agencies to immediately resolve the shelter needs of the urban poor during her visit at the ‘homeless camp’ of the evicted Pasig floodway residents in Mendiola, November 3.
