DOLE MIMAROPA gives 63.3M worth of TUPAD for “Tisoy” victims

        DOLE MIMAROPA brought assistance to 14,751 TY Tisoy victims in Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon through Tulong Panghanapbuhay Para sa Mga Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) amounting to 63.3M pesos.

In exchange of P320.00 per day, TUPAD beneficiaries performed the clearing, cleaning, declogging of canals, and basic repair of public infrastructure for 10-20 days.

Before the work engagement, per Department Order No. 173-17, beneficiaries were oriented about the health and safety as well as the reportorial documents that should be submitted for processing of salaries.

Also, TUPAD workers were enrolled for group micro-insurance with one-year coverage.

The program was implemented in coordination with local government units through their respective Public Employment Service Offices as accredited co-partners who are responsible for direct supervision and delivery of TUPAD services to the beneficiaries and to liquidate DOLE fund thereafter.

Moreover, there were other municipalities and city wherein DOLE directly administers the program implementation.

 “I’m very thankful na isa ako sa mga naging benificiaries ng TUPAD na naglinis sa ilang facilities ng Calapan Central School na apektado ng nagdaang bagyo nitong December 2019. Nagkaroon ito  sa akin ng magandang pananaw dahil may mga ganitong ahensya pala ng gobyerno ang nagbibigay pagkakataon na kumita at makaramdam ginhawa sa mga nangangailangan na hindi namimili ng kasarian at estado sa buhay. (I’m very thankful that I’m one of the beneficiaries who were assigned to clean the facilities of Calapan Central School affected by the typhoon last December 2019. This made me realized that the government has this kind of program of giving employment opportunities for the poor no matter what gender you have nor life status) said by Jay-R E. Valenzuela, a PWD, one of the beneficiaries in Oriental Mindoro.

Meanwhile, Romblon has 358 beneficiaries or equivalent to 1.1M to be implemented on first quarter of 2020.
