Over 7,000 disadvantaged Camiguingnons hired on TUPAD

MAMBAJAO, Camiguin (PIA)--The 7,601 town beneficiaries were hired under the Department of Labor and Employment's (DOLE)-10 Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program and were trained on its implementation by the Camiguin Provincial Field Office (Cam PFO) over a month-long series here.

DOLE-10 Cam PFO Chief Arlyn Z. Bael said the beneficiaries are all residents of the five municipalities of the entire province and qualified under the program since all are self-employed, underemployed, or seasonal workers whose means of livelihood were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bael said in coordination with the provincial government through Gov. Xavier Jesus D. Romualdo, a series of orientations were conducted: October 11, 2022 in Guinsiliban with 1,048 beneficiaries; October 12 in Sagay (879); October 14 in Catarman (1,853); October 15 in Mahinog (1,323); and October 18-19 in Mambajao (2,498).

According to Bael, each beneficiary will receive P3,900, for a total of P29,643,900, as a salary for 10 days of work from October 13 to 26, 2022, for community services such as street sweeping in barangay roads, vegetation control, and disinfection in their premises to prevent COVID-19 transmission.

The orientation was also supported by the respective town mayors and corresponding Public Employment Service Office (PESO) managers.

TUPAD is a community-based package of assistance that provides emergency employment for displaced workers, underemployed workers, and seasonal workers for a minimum period of 10 days, but not to exceed a maximum of 90 days, depending on the nature of the work to be performed.
