NGOs in Bais affected by flood to benefit from DOLE's ISLA program

by Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City (June 11) -- Two fishermen's groups involved in seaweed culture in Bais City are set to receive financial assistance worth P500,000 from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) during the 111th Independence Day "Kalayaan 2009" activities here.

The said farmers' group beneficiaries have sought assistance from DOLE after their fishing equipment were devastated by the recent flood that struck the province.

In a Kapihan forum held by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) here, Atty. Jose Ogang, officer-in-charge of the local DOLE office, said that they will provide said beneficiaries with 25 motorized bancas.

The assistance, carried out in coordination with the Bais City local government, is under DOLE's Integrated Services for Livelihood Advancement of the Fisher Folks (ISLA) in line with the Comprehensive Labor Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP) of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Ogang explained that CLEEP is the government's response to the financial crisis that left many displaced workers both locally and abroad.

CLEEP is intended to protect the country's most vulnerable sectors --- such as the poor, returning expatriates, workers in the export industry, and out-of-school youths, from threats and consequences of reduced or lost income as a consequence of the global economic crisis by providing emergency employment and funding and supervising livelihood projects.
