Over Half Million Pesos given to a PWD organization

Cebu City, Philippines.  Over Half Million Pesos in livelihood assistance was released by the Department of Labor and Employment through its Tri-City Field Office (TCFO) to the Helping Hands Organization of PWDs, Incorporated.

The TCFO covers the cities of Cebu, Mandaue and Lapu-Lapu.

Labor and Employment Regional Director, Atty. Johnson G. Cañete personally handed the check worth PHP537,820.00 to Mr. Venerando A. Ingking, President.

He said that the assistance would be used by twenty-seven (27) beneficiaries, who are all members of Helping Hands Organization of PWDs, Incorporated.

The projects that beneficiaries would be engaging with would center on Wellness; Shirts and Mug Printing; Electronics Repair Shop; Computer Printing; and Tailoring and Food Business for persons with disabilities.

According to TCFO Chief Labor and Employment Officer, Mr. Emmanuel Y. Ferrer, they would be closely working with Helping Hands Organization of PWDs, Inc. for the implementation and monitoring of the projects.

“With the organization’s involvement, we are expecting that liquidation of expenses incurred would likewise be put in place. More than this, we hope that their projects would go a long way,” said Ferrer.

The organization, he said further, shelled out more than One Hundred Thousand pesos as counterpart.

The financial assistance extended to beneficiaries was borne out of the DOLE Integrated Livelihood and Emergency Employment Programs (DILEEP), the Department’s contribution to the government’s agenda of inclusive growth through massive job generation and poverty reduction.
