TUPAD BENEFITS DISPLACED INDIGENT WORKERS
Some 50 indigent workers who lost their job including those who could not apply for work during the CoVID-19 pandemic benefited from the recent implementation of the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program of the Provincial Governor’s Office led by Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas through the Provincial Employment Services Office (PESO) headed by Julie Tabcao.
Of the number, 10 were assigned in Adaoay, Kabayan; 20 in Bulala, Sablan; and 20 in Ampusongan, Bakun. The beneficiaries have recently received their pay after working for 15 days. They are the first batch of beneficiaries this year with another 50 to be sent out soon to several identified working sites. A total of P750,000.00 worth of funds was allocated by the Provincial Governor’s Office for this program. Tabcao said beneficiaries of the program are assigned to help clean roads and clear canals. They are also asked to do other tasks aimed at promoting cleaner and safer environment especially with the rising cases of dengue in the province, she added.
