Formal sector workers to receive 12.5 Million CAMP assistance from DOLE

Cebu City, Philippines. The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE-7) has disbursed as of 19 November 2020 a total of Php12,550,00.00 under the DOLE’s Covid-19 Adjustment Measures Program (CAMP)-Bayanihan 2.

The amount, said DOLE-7 Regional Director Salome O. Siaton, benefited 2,500 workers coming from 231 establishments, who would each be receiving Php5,000.00 financial assistance. A portion of the disbursed funds, she said, was spent for the money remittance service charge amounting to Php50,000.00.

From the Tri-Cities of Cebu, Mandaue and Lapulapu, around 713 workers would collectively get the assistance coming from 41 establishments. In Cebu Province, 23 establishments benefited the program covering 189 workers. In Bohol, there are 326 workers getting Php5,000.00 each, who all came from 36 establishments. There are also 103 establishments in Negros Oriental benefiting the CAMP covering 1,119 workers, while 153 others benefited the financial assistance in Siquijor, who all came from 28 establishments.

“The amount we have disbursed as well as the data we’ve released will change over the next couple of days or even each day as we continue evaluating CAMP applications in all of our Field Offices,” explained Director Siaton.

Beneficiaries, she said, will just be waiting for their reference numbers, which will be distributed to them thru a text blast by a money remittance center - the DOLE’s CAMP service provider.

The Regional head clarified that some of the beneficiaries already claimed their financial assistance such as those in the education sector as the DOLE-7 started disbursing CAMP funds last 13 November 2020 in support to the commitment of Secretary Bello to the President that the release of the CAMP assistance should start by 15 November 2020.

The CAMP-Bayanihan 2 is a one-time availment of Php5,000.00 for the formal sector workers. Applications must be done online through www.reports.dole.gov.ph.
