83 Camiguin TUPAD bens urged to use cash aid wisely

MAMBAJAO, Camiguin (PIA)--"Ang among hangyo ani kay kung makuha puhon after 10 days, ampingi tahon ninyo ang inyong sweldo, ayaw gyud ninyo gastuhi sa wa’y klaro; likay gyud ta sa droga, likay gyud ta sa illegal nga gambling, likay gyud ta sa swertres." (Our request is that if you get the money after 10 days, take care of your salary and don't spend it on anything that is not needed; we must avoid drugs and illegal gambling) Gracing the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program orientation for 83 beneficiaries in the province, July 26, Mambajao Mayor Yñigo Jesus Romualdo emphasized the goals of implementing the program in Camiguin, specifically helping those whose livelihoods are severely affected by the pandemic. The beneficiaries include 10 individuals from Catarman, Mahinog (8), Sagay (10), and Mambajao (55). They will render community service for 10 days and will be paid P390 per day, or P3,900 after their employment with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE)-Camiguin. "Kita, ang munisipyo, ang lima ka munisipyo, ang Probinsya sa Camiguin, gapaningkamot nga mabalik og kanindot atong ekonomiya, mu-improve ang kinabuhi sa tanang mga tawo nga gapuyo sa Camiguin," Romualdo said. (We, in the municipality, the five municipalities, and the Province of Camiguin, will try to restore our economy, improve the lives of all the people who live in Camiguin) The mayor also urged the beneficiaries to wholeheartedly contribute to the cleanliness and orderliness of the province, which would entice tourists to visit the island province.
