Angara-Campita, in partnership with the Provincial Government of Camarines Sur, conducted an onsite payout of salaries to 191 beneficiaries in the said province under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay para sa Disadvantaged/ Displaced workers (TUPAD) program.
DOLE Bicol handed over a total of Php592,100 cash to displaced workers last August 23 and August 27, 2021, respectively.
Each worker has received a salary amounting to P3,100 after rendering a 10-day-service at work.

TUPAD is a community-based package of assistance that provides emergency employment for displaced workers, underemployed and seasonal workers for a minimum period of 10 days, but not to exceed a maximum of 30 days, depending on the nature of work to be performed.
TUPAD work program includes disinfection or sanitation in public facilities, de-clogging of canals, and beautification of respective barangays.
RD Campita expressed her gratitude and honor in bringing cash assistance for work to these displaced workers. She said, “I am honored and happy to bring you this little cash-for-work payout in return for the work and services you’ve rendered not only to your respective barangay but to your community as a whole.”
She hoped that through TUPAD, DOLE Bicol could somehow raise help to their urgent financial needs especially for those who were affected by the ongoing global pandemic.
While distributing the TUPAD salaries to workers, Health and safety protocols were strictly observed. The beneficiaries were also reminded to maintain ‘physical distancing' at all times. ###
