DOLE-Bicol to hire more workers after Glenda

LEGAZPI CITY—In the wake of typhoon Glenda, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Bicol announced that it will be hiring some 7,700 displaced workers from across the region.

Said workers will be employed under DOLE’s Tulong Alalay sa Ating Disadvantaged Workers (TUPAD) program.

DOLE Bicol Regional Director Nathaniel V. Lacambra said that a P25 million budget has been allocated for the program.

Most of the workers will come from Albay, as it is the province that has been hit the hardest by typhoon Glenda.

The workers to be hired will come from the list of evacuees from priority areas identified by the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (RDRRMC) and the Albay Provincial Safety and Emergency Management Office (APSEMO).

“The reports and recommendations of the RDRRMC will be our basis. They are the ones out in the field so they know which barangay or municipality needs the most intervention,” Lacambra explained.

According to the RDRRMC records, 308,046 persons from 62,951 families and 160 barangays were evacuated due to typhoon Glenda in the Bicol region.—With report from Raymond P. Escalante/BICOLSTANDARD.COM
