PRESS RELEASE Congresswoman Cindi King-Chan and the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) distributed P4,350 in assistance to each of the 855 listed TUPAD beneficiaries, for a total of P3,719,250.00. TUPAD is the "Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa ating Disadvantaged/Displaced Workers (TUPAD)" program, which provides emergency employment for displaced, underemployed, and seasonal workers for a minimum period of 10 days. The 855 beneficiaries, who are barangay residents, lost their jobs for various reasons. The last to get his assistance is 42-year-old Alan Sumalinog from Sitio Sudtunggan, Barangay Basak. He was the last, when all the beneficiaries were already there because he could not stand long in line. "Maghangos ko, maghuot akong dughan, ug dali ko kapoyon," he said. The former painter of a furniture company now survives on the meager salary of his wife, a seamstress. His frequent exposure to paints and chemicals in his former work took its toll on his health, as he was hospitalized then. His company’s medical insurance paid all these, but when he lost his job, he could no longer afford his medical bills. "Di ko mapalit ang tanang pito ka tambal nga gireseta sa ako sa doctor, kay wala na man koy kwarta," he said. One of the staff, Berlito Edradan Jr., advised him to see a doctor at the City hospital for a medical examination and then bring his doctor’s prescription to Congresswoman Cindi King-Chan’s office. Edradan is the congresswoman’s project consultant. Once assessed and approved by the office, Sumalinog will receive medical assistance from the Congresswoman. The Office of the Congresswoman is providing medical assistance to those who are in need. Requirements must be submitted during weekday office hours as the social worker interviews the patient. Once approved, the release of assistance is set for Friday. Minimum medical assistance is P2,000, while maximum assistance is P10,000, depending on the assessment of the social worker. PIO
