DAVAO CITY – The First Congressional District Office headed by Representative Paolo Z. Duterte, in collaboration with other government agencies, is set to conduct a three-day caravan in Davao City this month.
The Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD), Livelihood and Anti-Drug Campaign Caravan aims to provide cash assistance and to bring the anti-drug advocacy to beneficiaries.
More than 23,000 marginalized and/or displaced workers, earlier assigned to 15 days work, are expected to receive TUPAD support, while around 3,000 beneficiaries will receive livelihoods from December 16-18.
The beneficiaries, who will receive the assistance are as follows: the hotels, bars and resto staff; massage therapists and blind masseurs, single parents, persons with disability, service crews, and fisherfolks, are among others.
Aside from giving cash aid, Duterte encourages all the beneficiaries to participate in the anti-drug campaign of the government. The campaign is still a priority under President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s administration.
Rep. Duterte partnered with Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) to make this caravan possible.
