DSWD 12 Social Technology Unit head Amina Dataya said aside from the psychosocial services extended to all the 109 TIP victims-survivors, P200,000 out of the P298,000 aid was given to 20 recipients for livelihood/employment assistance; P90,000 to 12 recipients for skills training assistance and P24,000 or P8,000 financial aid to each of the three victims.

In addition to the RIACAT’s efforts, Dataya continued, the local government units have their own anti-human trafficking initiatives like Tacurong City which rescued eight TIPs and General Santos City which saved 30 TIPs.
