PCUP and DOLE will agree on a livelihood and employment opportunity.

In order to coordinate their efforts to provide urban poor groups with access to sources of income and employment opportunities, the Presidential Commission for the Urban Poor (PCUP) and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) are about to sign a memorandum of agreement (MOA).

After a virtual conference with Assistant Secretary Dominique Rubia-Tutay of the DOLE’s workers’ welfare and protection cluster and labor employment officer Erickson Mag-isa, PCUP chairperson Elpidio Jordan Jr. said that the two agencies decided to sign the agreement.

The signing will coincide with “Urban Poor Solidarity Week” (UPSW), which will be observed by the PCUP on December 7.

The PCUP’s mandate to support President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s pro-poor measures and alleviation program is the subject of this year’s UPSW theme, “The PCUP and the Urban Poor Sector: Together Meeting the Challenge of the New Age.”

Marcos has committed to hastening the nation’s economic recovery and bringing about development and progress not just in urban areas but also in rural areas.

We will do everything in our power to assist the urban poor. This is what our President wantsβ€”to end poverty in our nation by providing opportunities for our impoverished people to find work and support their families, he stated.

In order to improve its pro-poor programs, the PCUP extended its collaboration with the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) late last month.

Jordan and PCSO Chair Junie Cua spoke on the former’s efforts on behalf of the administration’s policy to reduce poverty, notably for seniors and people with disabilities, as well as its impending UPSW.

Cua pledged to supply food packs and medical supplies that would be provided to recognized organizations serving the urban poor in support of both activities.

The PCUP is a commission under the Office of the President entrusted with promoting and defending the rights of urban poor organizations and communities, especially informal settler families. It was established in 1986 under the administration of then-President Corazon Aquino.

It specifically addresses urban poor concerns like housing, reclamation, and demolitions.
