DOLE’s TUPAD aid more than a thousand beneficiaries in Quirino province


Cabarroguis, Quirino — The DOLE - Quirino Field Office (QFO) in partnership with the Provincial Government of Quirino led a set of Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Displaced/Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD) cash payouts to 1,229 recipients recently.

The payouts were intended to provide monetary compensation for TUPAD recipients of the province for the second quarter.

The 3-day set of payouts on June 2-4, 2021 were able to give assistance to beneficiaries from the towns of Cabarroguis, Aglipay, Diffun, Maddela and Nagtipunan.

The recipients performed activities that improved the status of provincial public spaces. To keep the recipients safe from the COVID-19 virus, minimum health standards were observed. Additionally, the monitoring of the said recipients’ performance and output was coordinated with the local government units to further enhance the monitoring process.

The total funds allotted for the TUPAD program for the second quarter in this province amounted to P4,982,246.17.

To adhere to health and safety protocols, a total of 769 recipients received their salary through money remittance, 191 of which are bugadors or boat rowers from Maddela.

The bugadors make living off of transporting tourists in the popular Governor’s Rapids — a river system in the province that is connected to the Cagayan River. They were selected to be recipients of the program because of the negative effects of the pandemic to the tourism sector.

Jane Mendoza, one of the recipients from Cabarroguis, Quirino expressed her gratitude to the labor agency for the assistance provided.

Ang laki po ng tulong ng TUPAD lalong lalo na ngayong may pandemya. Maraming salamat po,” Jane said.

Quirino Governor Dakila Carlo E. Cua, DOLE-QFO OIC Laura B. Diciano, Provincial Public and Employment Service Office (PESO) Manager Gregorio V. Dela Peña Jr., together with the DOLE focals and staff attended the set of TUPAD payouts. ###
