Cash for Work is a short-term intervention program of the DSWD to provide temporary employment to distressed or displaced individuals by participating in preparedness, mitigation, relief, rehabilitation or risk reduction projects and activities in their communities.
LGU Gumaca through its MSWDO implements this program at every opportunity given and so this morning more than 400 individuals received cash amounting to
2, 175 each in exchange for the work they have rendered in their respective communities. These somehow serve as their salaries which can help augment their requirement for food and other family basic necessities.
Speaking in behalf of Mayor Erwin & Vice Mayor Elchor Caralian, the recipients are reminded to use their money wisely and for the DSWD to continuously provide LGU Gumaca this cash for work program. MSWDO’s Nancy Anacion together with barangay officials where community works are done facilitated the distribution of the cash.
