TUPAD Program provides emergency livelihood in CamSur
The Department of Labor and Employment and Provincial Government of Camarines Sur, through CamSur Public Employment Services Office, has officially implemented the Tulong Pangkabuhayan sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) Program earlier this month in the municipalities of Bato, Bula, Bombon, and Camaligan.

Over 800 beneficiaries of the program was provided by the provincial government with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as hard hats, face masks, rubber boots, and broomsticks for the clean-up drive and social community projects of TUPAD Program.

Under the TUPAD Program, emergency employment opportunity is extended to the most affected families of TD USMAN. Each beneficiary was given 10 days of employment, working 8 hours a day from Monday to Friday starting on the day of deployment until completion of the 10 days’ work with 100% of the prevailing private sector minimum wage in the area/locality.

DOLE will be shouldering group micro-insurance for the duration of the work contract, while the payment of wages to TUPAD beneficiaries will be through a money remittance service provider. Earning P305.00 per day, the 25% of total equity of the program was provided by the provincial government as its counterpart.

“Maogma po kami ta iribanan kami nagtatrabaho. Nag-eenjoy talaga kami ta may iribanan asin pagkakasararo. Nagpapasalamat akong maray ta dakulang tabang ining patrabaho samuya ni Gov. Migz. Nakakatabang sa samuyang pamilya. Pati ining mga gamit. May magagamit na kami habang naglilinig.” shared Gloria Entea, one of the TUPAD beneficiaries of Tres Reyes, Bato, Camarines Sur.

For two years now, TUPAD Program has been benefitting the people of CamSur.
