PIA Press Release

More Capiceņos avail of DOLE's CLEEP aid

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (3 June) -- More than 300 Capiceņos are expected to avail of the government's livelihood assistance this coming Independence Day celebration.

Labor and Employment Provincial head Ricardo Monegro said that the Capiceņo beneficiaries under the DOLE's livelihood formation program will come from the six towns of Capiz, namely, Pontevedra, Mambusao, Maayon, Pilar, President Roxas and Ivisan.

Monegro said that they are not yet certain as to the exact amount of livelihood assistance per municipality because the proposals for the grant of said aid are still on the process of release at their higher office.

He explained that said assistance came after the livelihood of the identified program beneficiaries were totally destroyed by typhoon Frank that strongly hit Capiz and the other areas in the country.

Monegro said that the checks for said program beneficiaries will be released in time for the 111th Independence Day celebration in Capiz.

On the other hand, Monegro reveled that they have also released a total P533,500 for some 200 Capiceņo beneficiaries under the government's long-term assistance for unemployed poor.

He said that 50 individuals each in the four towns of Capiz, namely, Jamindan, Maayon, Pilar and Tapaz have been provided assistance by the government through the DOLE's Tulong Pangkabuhayan sa Ating Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD).

Monegro explained that TUPAD is part of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's Comprehensive Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP) that aims to soften the impact of the global economic slowdown on marginalized and vulnerable sectors.

Meanwhile, President Arroyo has urged the beneficiaries to use the funds properly and productively towards improving their livelihood and social lives. (PIA) [top]
