IN a bid to uplift the lives and livelihood of urban poor communities, Sen.  Christopher Go has provided support to struggling workforce in Pasig City.

Go and his Malasakit Team assisted 997 displaced workers, giving them grocery packs, snacks, shirts, vitamins, bags, basketballs, and volleyballs. There were also select recipients of shoes, bikes, watches, and mobile phones.

Through the initiative of the senator in coordination with the local officials, the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) conducted a Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD) program orientation for the qualified beneficiaries.

The senator took the opportunity to commend DOLE for their “proactive approach to addressing the challenges disadvantaged and displaced workers face.”

The TUPAD program, initiated by DOLE and supported by Go, aims to provide emergency employment and livelihood opportunities to those who have lost their jobs or sources of income in one way or another.
