DAVAO CITY – In collaboration with other government agencies, Davao 1st District Representative Paolo Z. Duterte 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.
Around 3,000 beneficiaries will receive livelihood assistance from Dec. 16-18. Qualified beneficiaries include displaced workers from hotels, bars and resto staff; massage therapists and blind masseurs, single parents, persons with disability, service crews, and fisherfolks, 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 the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) to make this caravan possible.
