2,000 workers in Tanauan receive aid under TUPAD program

Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez’s representative and District Chief of Staff Atty. Mark Stephen Reyes, in coordination with the Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) represented by Chief of North Leyte Field Office Engr. Emmanuel de la Cruz, spearheads the payout of Tulong Panghanapbuhay Para sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) to 2,000 beneficiaries at the Tanauan Civic Center in Tanauan, Leyte Wednesday morning. Also in the photo are Liga ng mga Barangay sa Pilipinas National Executive Vice-president Ma.Martina Gimenez and former Sanguniang Bayan Member Dr. Quintin Octa. In line with President Ferdinand “Bongbong” R. Marcos Jr.’s directive, Speaker Romualdez remains committed to delivering public service to support various sectors of society struggling with daily expenses and the cost of living.

A TOTAL of 2,000 beneficiaries in the municipality of Tanauan, Leyte today received financial aid under the assistance program of the administration of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. meant to help displaced workers by providing them temporary employment. 

Each beneficiary received P4,050 for 10 days of work under the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE.

The Office of Speaker Ferdinand Martin G. Romualdez led the payout held at the Tanauan Civic Center Wednesday morning.

“Patuloy po ang pagbibigay natin ng ayuda sa ating mga kababayan na nasa mahirap na sitwasyon, tulad ng ating mga mangagawa na nawalan ng trabaho o kakarampot ang kita dahil na rin sa iba’t-ibang kadahilanan,” said Speaker Romualdez, leader of the 300-plus strong House of Representatives. 

“This initiative is pursuant to the vision of President Marcos under the spirit of Bagong Pilipinas. Sabi nga ng Pangulo, sama-sama tayong babangon muli kaya naman ibinubuhos natin ang karampatang ayuda para sa mga nangangailangan,” he added. 

TUPAD is a community-based safety net initiative that provides temporary employment to workers in the informal sector. It targets the underemployed, displaced marginalized workers or those who have lost their jobs or experienced reduced income.

Romualdez said the continuing series of aid distribution in the province is also in accordance with the promise of President Marcos to bring government services closer to the people.

The Speaker was represented in the Tanauan aid distribution by Atty. Mark Stephen Reyes – his district chief of staff.

Reyes said that the Office of Speaker Romualdez is in constant coordination with various government agencies to ensure the delivery of services and targeted assistance to the residents of his district and the entire Leyte province. 

In addition, he noted that Speaker Romualdez also launched various initiatives meant to assist various sectors of society facing challenges. 

Among others, he cited the Cash and Rice Distribution (CARD) program meant to aid vulnerable sectors such as indigent senior citizens, PWDs, single parents, Indigenous Peoples (IPs) and near-poor families; the Integrated Scholarships and Incentives Program (ISIP) for the Youth, meant to support financially disadvantaged students throughout the Philippines,  as well as the SIBOL or Start-up, Incentives, Business Opportunity and Livelihood program to help small business owners. 

Representing DOLE in the event was Chief of North Leyte Field Office Engr. Emmanuel de la Cruz. Also present during the TUPAD payout were Liga ng mga Barangay sa Pilipinas National Executive Vice-president Ma. Martina Gimenez and former Sanguniang Bayan member Dr. Quintin Octa.
