The TUPAD beneficiaries worked for a period of 10 days, from April 30, 2022 to May 12, 2022. Before receiving their salaries on that same day through an accredited payment center, the DOLE-NCR Quezon City Field Office (QCFO) conducted first an orientation to help said recipients in understanding their entitlements under TUPAD and to make sure that they will receive their exact pay.

Meanwhile, the 20 beneficiaries of the DOLE BikeCINATION Project received free bicycle units that came with a one (1) android cellphone unit, an electronic load wallet worth P5,000, and other equipment such as reflector vest, bike light, helmet, tumbler, and thermal bag to help establish their first delivery business.

Also in attendance were QCFO Director, Engr. Martin T. Jequinto; Mr. Rey D. Sanglay, Supervising Labor and Employment Officer at DOLE-NCR Employment Promotion and Workers Welfare Division; and Ms. Lauren B. Resulta, Labor and Employment Officer III (QCFO).

The awarding of the DOLE aid was in collaboration with Councilor Imee Rillo of District IV.

DILEEP aims to contribute to reduce poverty and vulnerability to risks of the working poor and marginalized workers either through emergency employment, and promotion of entrepreneurship and community enterprises. Said program has two components, which is the: DOLE Integrated Livelihood Program (DILP) and the Tulong Panghanapbuhay sa Ating Disadvantaged / Displaced Workers (TUPAD) or Emergency Employment Program.
