ANTIPOLO CITY, Rizal, Sept 13 (PIA) — A total of 575 beneficiaries from Antipolo City, Rizal received their 10-day salary from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Calabarzon and Rizal provincial government’s Cash-for-Work Program.
DSWD 4A and the provincial government led by Governor Jun Ynares and the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office led the salary distribution at the Ynares Center, Antipolo City today.
Monette Martin from the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) said the selected beneficiaries included 450 residents from Brgy. San Jose (Sumilang relocation site, Tanza 1 & 2, Boso boso, Sitio San Joseph, Charismatic, Paenaan and Habitat), 100 from Brgy. Calawis (Sitio Apia and Palitaw) and 25 from Brgy. San Luis (Sitio Patnubay) and were paid P240 a day for 10 days.
Beneficiaries were tasked to clear canals, assist in dredging and makeshift road rehabilitation from August 28 to September 7 in Sumilang; August 30 to September 10 in Tanza 1 & 2 and Boso boso; August 31 to September 11 in Sitio Apia and Palitaw; and September 1-12 in Sitio Patnubay.
DSWD 4A Social Welfare Officer Joshua Saluria said the PSWDO is in charge of identifying and assessing the beneficiaries while the DSWD field office is responsible for allocating funds for MSWDOs and PSWDO to implement projects.
The DSWD regional office is also tasked to distribute profile forms to applicants with their name, age, occupation and monetary income. “This is done to ensure that that the selected beneficiaries are indigents since there have been some cases where non-indigents have applied for cash-for-work,” said Saluria.
