DSWD program employs 370 CamSur residents.

Approximately 370 people in Camarines Sur province have started working under the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s (DSWD) cash-for-work program, known as the Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS).

The beneficiaries in Barangay Siembre, Bombon town, were identified using the village’s risk disaster and need and analysis (RDANA) tool, according to Ranelle Anne Sertan, the Kalahi-CIDSS spokesperson.

“We distributed forms to find out what the barangay’s most pressing needs are, and based on the results, they require assistance.” “Cash-for-work is one of the programs under the KALAHI-CIDDS,” Sertan explained.

She also stated that the regional office has set aside PHP1.2 million for the Camarines Sur project.

“The beneficiaries will be employed for ten days and will be paid PHP3,100 each based on the minimum wage rate established by the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Boards-Bicol,” Sertan explained.

She explained that the program attempts to provide emergency jobs to villages that are unable to work due to a lack of resources.

One of the beneficiaries, Annalyn Lat, who began working earlier this week, said the program has been a huge assistance to her family.

“As a mother and a member of the community, may kikitain din kami para sa pamilya (As a mother and a member of the community, we will be able to clean our barangay and earn something for our family),” she stated.

The DSWD implements the national government’s Kalahi-CIDSS poverty reduction initiative.
