The City Government of Caloocan has distributed “bigasan” (rice store) livelihood packages worth P20,000 for 125 residents of Caloocan City as part of the recovery program of the city government amid the crisis.
According to DOLE, this program’s objective is to help the vulnerable and marginalized workers, especially those who lost their source of income due to the effects and restrictions brought by the pandemic.
With the intent to help more residents overcome the effects of the current economic setback, Caloocan City Mayor Dale Gonzalo “Along” Malapitan assured them that the city government will continue with its efforts to find ways to stimulate new opportunities.
“Asahan niyong magiging tuloy-tuloy pa ang mga proyektong tulad nito, mas marami pa tayong tutulugnan sa pamamagitan ng paglalaan ng oportunidad, ayuda, benepisyo at pangkabuhayan sa mga taga-Caloocan,” he said.
He likewise called on the beneficiaries to make every effort to expand this start-up opportunity provided to them.
“Sa lahat ng ating benepisyaryo, hiling ko na mapalago niyo ito at makatulong sa inyong pang araw-araw na gastusin. Kung ano man ang inyong kikitain ay mapaikot niyo pa sana para lumaki pa ang inyong negosyo at makatulong sa inyong pangangailangan sa araw-araw,” the Mayor said.
Mayor Malapitan also expressed his gratitude to DOLE-NCR for consistently helping Caloocan City through its programs and livelihood activities which benefited thousands of residents and allowed families to thrive and earn honest means of living. Jun David
