Bello commits P500M assistance to Region II, leads payout of TUPAD in Cagayan and Isabela province

Tuao, Cagayan - DOLE Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III committed to pour a total of P500M in livelihood assistance to Region II if and when the proposed Bayanihan III is signed into law, this mentioned by the labor secretary during the payout of TUPAD beneficiaries in this town earlier today. 

Bello said the assistance will be provided to ensure that workers in the region rebound from the effects of a pandemic which has curtailed livelihood opportunities for the labor sector especially for informal sector workers. 

“Kung ito ay mapasa [Bayanihan 3], magbibigay tayo ng tulong para sa mga manggagawa nating naapektuhan sa lahat ng probinsya dito sa Cagayan Valley Region. Utos ni Presidente Duterte na ubusin lahat ng pondong maaaring gamitin upang matulungan ang lahat ng mga taong nangangailangan,” Bello said. 

DOLE RO2 Regional Director Joel M. Gonzales meanwhile said that the regional office continues to address the concerns of workers in the region and shall be steadfast and ready in the event that funds for Bayanihan 3 are downloaded. 

“Nakapagbigay tayo ng tulong sa humigit 11,000 nitong nakaraang tatlong araw lamang at tayo ay handa upang i-implementa ang mga pondong maaring ibaba mula sa Presidente at Kalihim natin upang tulungan ang mga naghihikahos na manggagawa dito sa Rehiyon Dos,” Director Gonzales added. 

Meanwhile the payout in Tuao, Cagayan benefitted a total of 1,100 beneficiaries, each one receiving a daily wage of P370.00, the prevailing minimum wage rate in the region. 

Bello also graced a TUPAD payout in Quezon, Isabela thereafter, with 950 beneficiaries receiving assistance through TUPAD. 

Today’s activities were also graced by Cagayan Governor Manuel N. Mamba, Isabela Governor Rodito Albano, Tuao, Cagayan Municipal Mayor Francisco N. Mamba, Jr., Vice Mayor William N. Mamba and Quezon, Isabela Mayor Jimmy S. Gamazon, Jr. ###
