Netizen Enumerates Financial Supports Given to Hidilyn Diaz Both by the National Government & Private Sectors

Olympian weightlifter and Gold Medalist of the Asian Games, Hidilyn Diaz made headlines earlier for her call for financial support because of her allege dire needs to support herself and her quests for the first-ever Olympic Godl Medal for the Philippines in the Summer Olympics.


According to Hidilyn Diaz she is now in dire financial help and need all the support of the government as well as the government sectors on her efforts to train for the Philippines.

In order to examine whether Diaz really needs the financial support from the government and the private sector, concerned citizen Benjie Daisy Contreras enumerated some of the financial help Hidilyn Diaz received both from the national government and the private sectors, companies and individuals.



The statement of Diaz earlier to the media allegedly insinuates that the government has been remiss in providing financial support to her but based on the details presented by Contreras, the government was indeed doing their best to support the athlete.

According to the PSC, Hidilyn Diaz received P5 million for winning the Silver Medal in Rio Olympics in 2016. P2 million additional cash from Pres. Duterte; P500,000 from LGU of Zamboanga City and another P500,000 from the Senate.

Aside from the millions worth of incentives, Hidilyn Diaz also received at least P45,000 as monthly allowance from PSC and a monthly base pay as Airwoman Sergeant worth P32,756.

DOES HIDILYN DIAZ REALLY NEED FINANCIAL SUPPORT?

Sabi ni Olympian weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz ay “HIRAP NA HIRAP NA AKO. I NEED FINANCIAL SUPPORT. NAHIHIYA KASI AKO, PERO TRY KO KAPALAN MUKHA KO PARA SA MINIMITHING KONG PANGARAP”.

Sa tinuran ito ni Hidilyn Diaz parang sinabi niya na siya’y pinapabayaan ng gobyernong Duterte. Kulang ang suportang ibinibigay sa kanya para sa preparasyon sa 2020 Tokyo Olympics.



I made a research on Diaz’ claim that she’s really in dire need of financial help which insinuates that the government has been remiss in providing financial support to her.
