Caloocan residents get livelihood packages
Over 125 residents of Caloocan City received “bigasan” livelihood packages from the city government and the Department of Labor and Employment-National Capital Region (DOLE-NCR) through the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) on Wednesday morning, July 20, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.
The program aims to help the marginalized sectors, especially individuals who lost their source of income due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan said that the city government will continue to implement the recovery program of the city government.
“Asahan niyong magiging tuloy-tuloy pa ang mga proyektong tulad nito, mas marami pa tayong tutulugnan sa pamamagitan ng paglalaan ng oportunidad, ayuda, benepisyo at pangkabuhayan sa mga taga-Caloocan (You can expect that projects like this will continue, we will be able to address more by providing opportunities, assistance, benefits, and livelihood to the people of Caloocan),” Malapitan said.
“Sa lahat ng ating benepisyaryo, hiling ko na mapalago niyo ito at makatulong sa inyong pang araw-araw na gastusin. Kung ano man ang inyong kikitain ay mapaikot niyo pa sana para lumaki pa ang inyong negosyo at makatulong sa inyong pangangailangan sa araw-araw (To all our beneficiaries, I ask you to grow it and let it help in you in your daily expenses. Whatever you earn, you can turn it around to grow your business and help in sustaining your daily needs),” he added.
Malapitan expressed gratitude to DOLE-NCR for consistently helping Caloocan City through its programs and livelihood activities, which benefited thousands of residents and allowed families to thrive and earn honest means of living.
