Dear Ms. Ayoma:

Among the information you requested is “2) Validated list will submitted to the DSWD for final assessment of Valencia City Bukidnon year 2017.” 

Unfortunately, we do not understand exactly what you mean by this. Are you asking for the list of beneficiaries of the Social Pension Program for Valencia City, Bukidnon for the year 2017? Or are you asking for something else?

We shall wait for your clarification on this matter.

Very truly yours,
