How do you feel about this story?


At least 2,206 residents in this province have benefited from the Tulong Pangkabuhayan sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE).

DOLE-Pampanga head Arlene Tolentino on Monday said their agency has so far distributed some PHP9.11 million to program beneficiaries in Candaba town who rendered 10-day community services including declogging of canals, debris clearing, segregation and cleaning operations.

Tolentino said the beneficiaries were farmers, fisher folks, vendors, laborers and other underemployed workers, who each received PHP4,500.

Crispin Villamar, one of the TUPAD beneficiaries, thanked the DOLE for the emergency employment which he said is a big help to his family.

“Mayroon na kaming pangdagdag sa pambili ng pagkain at pambili ng gamit para sa mga bata (We now have an addition to buying food and other things for my children,” said Villamar in social media post, adding that he has three children who are currently studying.

Candaba Mayor Rene Maglanque likewise thanked the DOLE for the assistance extended to his constituents.

He said the beneficiaries are those displaced by Super Typhoon Karding that hit the country last September.

Tolentino said the TUPAD program is also being implemented in other towns of the province such as Lubao and Magalang.

She said DOLE is looking forward to reaching more beneficiaries deserving of the TUPAD assistance in the province.

“We still have remaining allocation pending for implementation within the year,” she added. (PNA)
