The Muntinlupa City Council has passed a resolution honoring Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III for his active role in providing emergency employment to jobless residents.

In City Resolution 2021-549, Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi and the city council expressed their gratitude to Bello for “bringing to Muntinlupa City the Program Tulong Pangkabuhayan para sa mga Displaced/Disadvantaged Persons thereby benefiting our constituents who are affected by the economic impact of the pandemic.”

TUPAD is a community-based package of assistance through the Department of Labor and Employment that provides emergency employment for vulnerable individuals affected by the COVID-19 pandemic for a minimum period of 10 days.

Last October 23, DOLE held a ceremonial turn-over of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and tools that consisted of 50 pieces of wheel barrow, 250 pieces of pick mattocks, 250 pieces of shovel, 250 pairs of gloves, and 500 pieces of hard hats at the Muntinlupa Sports Center, Brgy. Tunasan.

The PPEs were donated by the International Labor Organization (ILO) and were distributed to DOLE’s TUPAD beneficiaries. This initiative aims to reduce work-related hazards during the conduct of various community-based projects that are implemented in close coordination with the LGUs.
