CABADBARAN City — The Department of Labor and Employment TUPAD caravan continued here Tuesday with another massive payout led by Secretary Silvestre “Bello” himself assisted by the staff of DOLE-CARAGA.
At least 170 beneficiaries from six (6) barangays of the city received TUPAD cash assistance from Sec. Bello during the distribution that followed the simple ceremonies also attended by local officials.
TUPAD is short for Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers.
It 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.
