The Department of Labor and Employment Regional Office IV-A through its personnel from the Batangas Provincial Office traveled by land and sea to conduct another batch of Tulong Panghanapbuhay para sa Ating Displaced/Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD) orientation held at Barangay San Juan, in the island municipality of Tingloy, Batangas, November 23.
DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program focal person, Ms. Salvacion Kalalo, and TUPAD Coordinator Ms. Bea Mari Ingco led the orientation to a total of 1,000 island residents of Tingloy.
During the program, Ms. Kalalo emphasized the essence of TUPAD and reminded the beneficiaries of their duties and obligations as part of the program.
“Bilang mga benepisyaryo ng TUPAD ay inyo pong gagampanan ang inyong mga responsibilidad dahil hindi po biro, hindi po kung saan nanggaling ang inyong suswelduhin,” Kalalo uttered.
Meanwhile, TUPAD Coordinator, Ms. Ingco discussed the background of TUPAD as well as the benefits comprised as part of the program including matters about salary, insurance coverage, as well as the tasks expected of all qualified beneficiaries.
She further explained the eligibility required to become qualified beneficiaries of TUPAD.
“Isang beses sa isang taon lamang po pwedeng makasali ang isang benepisyaro. So ‘yung mga natanggal po marahil ay kakasali lamang po kaya po sila ay na-findings or natanggal. Pangalawa po, isang benepisyaryo lamang po kada pamilya,” Ingco emphasized.
Aside from conveying a brief introduction about the program, DOLE representatives also distributed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including t-shirts, Buri hats, washable facemasks, and face shields to qualified beneficiaries.
Whether in the mainland or island municipalities such as Tingloy, the DOLE Batangas Provincial Office is committed to bringing the department’s services such as TUPAD to every Batangueno.
DOLE Batangas Provincial Focal Person for Livelihood Program, Ms. Salvacion Kalalo, and TUPAD Coordinator Ms. Bea Mari Ingco led the TUPAD orientation to a total of 1,000 island residents of Tingloy, Batangas, on November 23.
