Tingog nominee vows to work on delivery of cash-for-work program for displaced workers in R8 other parts of PH

DULAG, Leyte – TINGOG Party-list nominee and popular actress-singer Karla “Mamshie” Estrada on Friday vowed to work on the delivery of cash-for-work program for displaced workers in Region VIII and other parts of the country after leading the payout of the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) to more than 100 beneficiaries here.

Last Tuesday afternoon, Estrada led the TUPAD payout to at least 500 beneficiaries in Dagami, Leyte.

Estrada, the proud mother of actor and recording artist Daniel Padilla, also extended TINGOG’s deep appreciation to Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Sec. Silvestre “Bebot” Bello III for DOLE’s commitment to relentlessly implement TUPAD in partnership with Tingog to help displaced workers battle the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Tingog Party-list is led by Rep. Yedda Marie K. Romualdez, chairperson of the House Committee on the Welfare of Children.

Estrada visited Barangays Combis and Sungi in Dulag, Leyte to deliver DOLE’s programs and services to needy workers who lost income following the devastating effects of the pandemic.

Tingog also held a feeding program in the area that benefitted at least 300 people to help alleviate hunger and reduce micronutrient deficiency.

Local officials here warmly welcomed the beneficial activities of the Tingog Party-list group.

Norman Uyvico, an official of the Department of Labor and Employment’s (DoLE) North Leyte Field Office, recognized anew the crucial role of the Tingog Party-list in the smooth implementation of the program in Eastern Visayas.

Bello said TUPAD is a community-based package of assistance that provides emergency employment for displaced workers, underemployed and seasonal workers, for a minimum period of 10 days, but not to exceed a maximum of 30 days, depending on the nature of work to be performed.

In Burauen, Leyte, Estrada spearheaded the donation of brand-new wheelchairs to boost the morale of elderly residents with physical impairment.
